Everton boss Allardyce to miss Europa League game at Apollon

Everton boss Sam Allardyce is set to make a number of changes for his side's trip to Apollon Limassol on Thursday night, and could give out as many as five debuts, according to the Liverpool Echo.

Wayne Rooney, Gylfi Sigurdsson and Jordan Pickford are among them, with Allardyce conscious of Sunday's Merseyside derby, and Schneiderlin's presence on the other side of the continent could be interpreted as a reflection of his place in the Goodison Park pecking order.

As a result, Schneiderlin, as well as teammate Kevin Mirallas, was left out of the squad that beat Watford 3-2 at Goodison Park.

The new Toffees boss will miss the match due a "pre-arranged medical appointment".

Labelling the reports about the bust up as "fake news", he added: "That is the only thing I will say about it because I want to turn the page".

"First I read about it in the newspaper and I was as surprised as I could be because there was no incident", he said. I have to deal with it. Like I said, I want to prove something in every game.

'Against Limassol it is going to be a chance of everything, it is to get game time, to enjoy yourself.

"It needs to be the aim of everybody to show themselves and show that they can play".

In Allardyce's absence, Ferguson and Shakespeare, who was at the helm for part of Leicester's Champions League run last term, are set to take charge of an inexperienced XI. "Since I play football you always have something to prove, that is part of being a player".

"The players should see it as a real opportunity to grasp and force their way back into the team".

James McCarthy and Sandro Ramirez are two players that would have expected to play some part against a team that now occupy fifth place in the Cypriot First Division, with suggestions that the former was hoping to get 60 minutes under his belt.
