Welcome, Marco!

Everything you need to know about the new boss here.

Jonjoe Kenny is handed a full Everton debut as Ronald Koeman rings the changes for the Blues' Carabao Cup third round meeting with Sunderland.

In total, the Dutchman includes eight different starters from Sunday’s Premier League defeat at Manchester United, among them deadline-day arrival Nikola Vlasic, who is set to begin a game at Goodison Park for the first time. 

Striker Oumar Niasse, who last appeared in an Everton squad in May 2016, is named on the bench. 

Kenny, the captain of the Club's victorious Premier League 2 squad last season, takes his place in defence alongside Mason Holgate and two of the players to remain from Old Trafford, Ashley Williams and Michael Keane. 

The third, Tom Davies, again lines up in midfield, where he is joined by Muhamed Besic and Davy Klaassen. Sandro Ramirez, Vlasic and Dominic Calvert-Lewin complete Koeman's XI. 

Sunderland start with three former Everton players in Jack Rodwell, Darron Gibson and James Vaughan, while Bryan Oviedo and Callum McManaman are ex-Toffees among the substitutes for the visitors.
