Everton team news: Koeman to unleash teenager against Man City
By Dominic Toner
Everton manager Ronald Koeman has confirmed that Ademola Lookman could feature against Manchester City.
The 19-year-old could make his club debut on Sunday as Everton host Man City in the Premier League and they will be looking to bounce back after the elimination from the FA Cup against Leicester on Saturday.
The attacker recently moved to Goodison Park after his £11million deal was completed with League One side Charlton.
The Toffees manager Koeman confirmed in his pre-match press conference that Lookman could be involved at the weekend, as cited by the club’s official Twitter account.

The England Under-20 international can play anywhere across the front three and his best position is as a left winger.
He made 25 appearances for Charlton this season before his departure, scoring seven goals and supplying two assists in 25 appearances.
Everton boss Koeman is keen to build a young squad at Goodison Park and Lookman will hope to follow in the footsteps of 18-year-old Tom Davies, who has recently broke into the first-team from the club’s academy.
