Everton vs Olympique Lyon
UEFA Europa League
Date: 19th October 2017
Kick off at 20:05 UK/ 21:05 CET
Venue: Goodison Park (Liverpool).
Everton sit at the very foot of the Group E standings after two opening rounds and they will be desperate to see off Lyon this Thursday to get the campaign back on track and boost up the shaken confidence ahead of the rest of the season.
The Toffees entered the season with the sky-rocketing expectations after they spent the historical amount of money on this summer’s acquisitions.
However, Ronald Koeman’s side opened both Premier League and Europa League campaigns in a horrendous fashion.
The Ditch manager is desperate to see a serious turnaround in his team’s form shortly or else he will likely lose the job.
Lyon may have sold their top scorer from the last term Alexandre Lacazette, but they have found a phenomenal replacement in the like of Mariano Diaz.
The Dominican forward took his Ligue 1 tally to seven goals when he broke the deadlock against Monaco on Friday evening.
His attacking mate, Nabil Fekir, added two more to secure a massive victory for Les Gones who have bagged three goals in three straight league outings.
