How did we rate Everton’s youth and fringe players as they were edged out by Krasnodar at Goodison Park?
Everton’s 2014/15 Europa League group stage campaign may have ended in the disappointment of defeat to FK Krasnodar at Goodison Park – but Toffees fans will have enjoyed seeing some of the club’s younger and fringe players in action this evening whilst they will also be will aware that European competition will be returning to the club in the new year.
Roberto Martinez made numerous changes to the side that sealed top spot in the group with victory in Wolfsburg on the last game day, with a number of young players and also some returning from injury featuring. This is how they did:
GK) Joel Robles 4 – Joel has had to be patient as he plays second fiddle to Tim Howard – but did little to suggest he can force his way in here with a poor error for the goal.
RB) Ty Browning 5 – Is a relatively highly rated prospect at Everton but looked like a player who would be more comfortable at centre back.
CB) Antolin Alcaraz 6 – The Paraguayan did okay but was perhaps caught on his heels for the Krasnodar goal.
