Everton have endured a miserable Europa League campaign so far this season.

 They failed to progress into the knockout stage of the competition after succumbing to a 3-0 defeat to French side Lyon in their last outing.




The Toffees have garnered just a single point over the course of this campaign, and David Unsworth’s side will be playing for pride on Thursday night. 

They go into the game on the back of drawing against Crystal Palace in the Premier League – with the game’s big talking point being Oumar Niasse’s controversial penalty decision – which resulted him in being the first Premier League player to be retrospectively banned for an alleged act of simulation to deceive the match officials.

They take on mid-table Italians Atalanta, who sit at the top of Group E with eight points. 

The last time both sides met, Everton lost 3-0. 

Start Time

The match takes place on Thursday 23 November. Kick-off is at 8.05pm UK time. 

TV and live online coverage

This game is live on BT Sport 2, with coverage beginning at 8pm. 




Team News

 Everton have a long injury list with long-term absentees in Ross Barkley, Ramiro Funes Mori, Yannick Bolasie, James McCarthy and Seamus Coleman. 

To compound this even further, midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin is suspended for the game.

It's worth remembering that Everton will be without Oumar Niasse , as the striker isn't registered to play in the Europa League this season.

The Blues will also still be without the usual long-term absentees - whilst James McCarthy is also set to miss out through injury and Morgan Schneiderlin is suspended following his red card against Lyon.

 Atalanta have no new injuries apart from left midfielder Leonardo Spinazzola who will miss out with a muscular problem.


1ST HALF
Everton 0-1 Atalanta

2ND HALF
Everton 1-5 Atalant
