Kone Starts At Blackburn

@Everton

ForEverton members can buy their tickets for the Hull City game on 3 December now!

Arouna Kone will make his first Everton appearance against Blackburn Rovers after he was named in the starting line-up for Saturday’s friendly at Ewood Park.

There are also places in the starting eleven for Ross Barkley and Tim Howard.

The pair were given an extended summer break following their international involvements and will now get their first pre-season action against Gary Bowyer’s side.

Leighton Baines picked up a slight knock in training and is therefore missing as a precaution, so Bryan Oviedo starts at left-back.

Baines trained this morning and will travel to the United States when the squad depart for their pre-season tour.

Everton starting line-up: Howard, Hibbert, Gibson, Jagielka, Oviedo, Kone, Mirallas, Distin, Barkley, Pienaar, Fellaini

Blackburn starting line-up: Kean, Kane, Kilgallon, Hanley, Lowe, King, Rhodes, Dann, Taylor, Marrow, Judge (Subs: Best, Pedersen, Eastwood, O’Sullivan, Rochina, Morris, Nunes)
