We’ll see a few more familiar faces on the pitch this afternoon when Everton take on FC Sion in their second preseason friendly game. A handful more players joined the group in training at Finch Farm this week and have made the trip to Switzerland where the Blues will remain for another week.
The Toffees trained this morning as well and then return to play this afternoon, so Marco Silva is likely to rotate the starting lineup at halftime and make sure as many players as possible get some time on the pitch.
Today’s opponents Sion are based half an hour away from Bagnes where the Blues are training, and are led by a former Liverpool player Stephane Henchoz. Another couple of familiar names on their side are Cameroon international Alex Song and Swiss international Pajtim Kasami.
Make sense of that if you will, but Mirallas at right back?!
Everton: Lossl, Williams, Holgate, Keane, Baines, Schneiderlin, Gomes, Mirallas, Davies, Broadhead, Niasse.
