Everton v Lyon Team News

Both teams are yet to register a win in this season’s Europa League (EL) campaign. Everton squandered a home lead in the previous round vs a 10-man Apollon side, and previously to that they were embarrassed by Atalanta in a 3-0 away defeat.

Lyon, still without a win, have kept the ship steady with 2 draws. A win for either team would see their chances of qualification vastly improved, especially Everton, so expect this to be a hard fought fixture as neither team will want to lose.

Former Manchester United winger, Memphis Depay, may feature for Lyon as they seek to gain their 1st group victory on English soil. He may be feeling rested after only playing 30 minutes during their remarkable 3-2 victory vs Monaco last weekend.

Lyon are unbeaten in their last 4 games, with a prolific record of 10 goals scored across said fixtures. 3 of Lyon’s last 4 games have ended with over 4.5 goals and this fixture looks to have similar potential for goals, given the pedigree of the 2 sides.

Nabil Fekir & Mariano Diaz have had the lion's share of the goals in Ligue 1 for Lyon since losing their star man, Lacazette, to Arsenal during the summer. Both forwards sit on 7 goals each, Fekir bagged a brace against a strong Monaco side last weekend.

Everton: Jordan Pickford - Leighton Baines, Ashley Williams, Michael Keane, Mason Holgate - Morgan Schneiderlin, Muhamed Besic - Wayne Rooney, Gylfi Sigurdsson, Nikola Vlasic - Dominic Calvert-Lewin (4-2-3-1 formation)
