Young Boys v Everton preview

Jubilant scenes inside the Chelsea dressing room following their Europa League win

As well as Baines and McGeady (both knee), the travelling party is also missing Leon Osman, Steven Pienaar and Arouna Kone – a trio in action for the under-21s side this week as they worked on their fitness – plus Tony Hibbert (unspecified).

Sylvain Distin was available but not selected and Aaron Lennon is the other absentee as he is cup-tied, having featured for Tottenham earlier in the competition, but fellow on-loan winger Christian Atsu is back in the squad after playing for Ghana at the African Nations Cup and being ineligible to face his parent club Chelsea last week.
