David Unsworth and Jonjoe Kenny held a pre-match press conference on Wednesday afternoon ahead of the Europa League clash at home to Atalanta.

The Blues boss joined the right-back to speak to media at USM Finch Farm. Key topics included:

- Unsworth welcoming back the return of 'top, proven Premier League player' Yannick Bolasie to a first-team training session, while revealing that Ross Barkley and James McCarthy are both 'a couple of weeks away' from returning to action.

- Mason Holgate has a groin injury, skipper Phil Jagielka will be rested against Atalanta and Morgan Schneiderlin - who is suspended for the Europa League match - is continuing his recovery from a toe problem.

- The Blues boss vowing to pick a strong side to take on the Serie A club and be 'respectful to Evertonians'.

- Kenny discussing why the European group match at Goodison is a chance for players to stake a claim for a first-team place - and how the Blues can use the game to build momentum.
