Roberto Martinez declared himself satisfied with Everton's pre-season opener at Tranmere Rovers on Tuesday evening.
The Blues were twice pegged back in the second half by the Prenton Park hosts as the game ended 2-2.
Steven Naismith and Leon Osman grabbed the Everton goals midway through each half, with the manager making 10 changes at the interval.
It proved to be a welcome experiment as Martinez's mix of established players and youngsters gained important match minutes.
The Blues boss said: "It was a great mixture and we were able to see a lot of youngsters, as well as completing a very fitting exercise for what we are trying to do in pre-season."
The only player not to complete 45 minutes was Seamus Coleman, but Martinez insisted the right-back's substitution was made with Sunday's game against Leicester City in mind.
He added: "Seamus came off as a precaution because he felt his hamstring slightly. Apart from that it's been a real success in what we wanted to achieve."
