January signing John Stones will make his first Everton appearance on Monday when the Club’s Under-21s take on Fulham at Motspur Park.

The right-back signed from Championship Barnsley on transfer deadline day, penning a five-and-a-half year deal.

After helping England Under-19s to a 3-1 win over Denmark last Tuesday, Stones was named on David Moyes' first-team bench for the first time on Sunday as the Blues suffered a 2-0 defeat at Manchester United.

Stones has now travelled down to London with Alan Stubbs' charges and is set to feature in a strong starting line-up which will also include Shane Duffy, Matthew Kennedy, Francisco Junior, Conor McAleny and Apostolos Vellios.

The meeting with the Cottagers will also see left-back Luke Garbutt make his return to action after a season plagued by injury.

The England Under-19 star made his first-team debut in August's Capital One Cup victory over Leyton Orient but suffered back-to-back ankle injuries, forcing surgery and a lengthy spell on the sidelines.

Kennedy played the full 120 minutes as Everton's Under-18s progressed to the fifth round of the FA Youth Cup with a 3-2 extra-time victory at Port Vale last Thursday, just 24 hours after playing for Scotland's Under-19s in Holland.

Two other members of that Blues squad, Conor Grant and Mason Springthorpe, start, while Russell Griffiths, Tom Molyneux and Chris Long are named among the substitutes.  

Everton: Springthorpe, Stones, Garbutt, Lundstram, Duffy, Browning, Kennedy, Junior, Vellios, McAleny, Grant. Subs: Griffiths, Hope, Long, Molyneux, Johns.
