Everton come from a 1-1 draw against Liverpool, and are set to face Manchester United at Old Trafford right after. Roberto Martinez stated he would not take this competition lightly and in wake of poor Premier League results, Everton are set to leave a mark in Europa League.

There is a difference in the quality of these two squads, but the Russians should not be overlooked as they are quite dangerous in the attack, with Wanderson, Ari and Joazinho.
