Saha Starts

Louis Saha will start for Everton in Liege tonight.

Saha Starts

David Moyes has handed Louis Saha a starting berth for tonight's Uefa Cup clash with Standard Liege.

The French international striker will partner Yakubu in attack as the manager makes two changes from the side that started against Liverpool at the weekend.

Marouane Fellaini is unavailable after playing for Liege in the Champions League qualifier, whilst Joseph Yobo drops out of the starting line-up in order to accomodate the return to the starting line-up of Leighton Baines.

Joleon Lescott will switch over from left back to the centre of defence alongside Phil Jagielka.

Leon Osman, Tim Cahill, Mikel Arteta and Phil Neville will fill the midfield positions.

Yobo has to settle for a place on the bench alongside Segundo Castillo, Nuno Valente, the fit-again Steven Pienaar, Jack Rodwell and Victor Anichebe.

It is Pienaar's first inclusion in an Everton squad this term after recovering from the broken toe he sustained against PSV Eindhoven in pre-season.

Everton: Howard; Hibbert, Jagielka, Lescott, Baines; Arteta, Neville, Cahill, Osman; Saha, Yakubu. Subs: Nash, Yobo, Valente, Rodwell, Castillo, Pienaar, Anichebe.

our season starts tonight we must go for it from the off. saha could be the key and its great to have pienaar back in the squad. This is a massive game for david moyes we fail tonight i really think he will quit lets hope its not the case

Trevor HambidgeAm pleased to see Baines in the team and, what I think is, the best choice centre back pairing. No mistakes tonight please Jags and Lescott!

Mike CampbellI think all the signs of the team selection are positive. We all know how important this match is tonight in the context of the entire season. I think we can do it and I wish I was over there now but I will be hoarse anyway by the final whistle!!!
