Pre-Season Preview: Everton (H)

21 August 2020

Blackpool welcome Premier League side Everton to Bloomfield Road on Saturday as preparations for the new season continue.

Neil Critchley’s men have made it three wins from three in pre-season so far with victories over Southport, Port Vale and Barrow AFC. Everton will be a notable step-up however, with Carlo Ancelotti expected to field a strong XI on Saturday.

Team News

Neil Critchley is expected to have a near full matchday squad at his disposal for the game, with Oli Sarkic and Chris Maxwell featuring in the last game.

For the visitors, this is their first match of pre-season, having completed their league campaign less than a month ago in a 3-1 defeat at home to AFC Bournemouth.

The Head Coach…

“It’ll be a special occasion despite it being a pre-season game. For our lads to come up against some of the top players Everton have at their disposal will be a real test for us and something we can learn from.

“Our defensive organisation will undoubtedly get tested and it will likely be a case of how we manage without the ball at times.”
