Tom Davies and Jonjoe Kenny enjoying Sam Allardyce's 'straightforward' approach at Everton

Davies says the former England manager has implemented his ideas without confusion ahead of the Merseyside derby against Liverpool on Sunday, live on Sky Sports Premier League.

Shakespeare and fellow coach Duncan Ferguson will take charge of the already-eliminated Toffees in their final Group E tie at Tsirio Stadium on Thursday evening, with Allardyce unable to travel due to a pre-arranged medical appointment and assistant Sammy Lee remaining at Finch Farm to work with the scores of first-team players that have been left behind.

Allardyce underwent heart surgery back in December 2009 to fix a narrow coronary artery during his time in charge of then-Premier League side Blackburn Rovers.

"We have done that as such with some players getting their debuts".

17-year-old Ireland-eligible defender Michael Collins and keeper Mateusz Hewelt, who played schoolboy football with Stella Maris and Shelbourne, are substitutes tonight.

Everton have a long way to go before they can compete with Liverpool, both on the pitch and financially.

The list doesn't include any minivans, pickups or minicars, which don't appear on either list of awardees. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has released its top vehicle safety picks for 2018.

The Toffees take on Apollon Limassol in Cyrus still searching for their first win of the campaign. There are high hopes at Finch Farm for the Bootle-born defender.

Alex Denny - England Under-17 global Denny is a ball-winning defensive midfielder by trade, but has also stepped up admirably to fill in at centre-back for David Unsworth's second-string team at times this season.

Fraser Hornby - Strong in the air and with a keen eye for goal, Hornby was a star performer for the Blues' Under-18s last season.

He has gone with an experimental side for the game and there are other Ireland-eligible players on the substitutes bench.

Everton finished their campaign in third position, racking up four points from six games.

As such, a home win seems the safe bet for anyone fancying a flutter on the match.
