Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti has also been enthusing about his new arrivals, and has explained to Sky Sports pre-match that they are ready to prove their worth.
“They are in good condition. They trained well this week with the others. Of course, they have to adapt a little bit, and the others have to adapt to them. They are going to show their best qualities.
“James had a difficult season last year and didn’t play a lot. He is excited to play. He will not be 100% but I think he can show his quality.
“It is an important test against a really strong team, but at the same time we are really excited.”
