Everton Under-21s are back in action on Wednesday evening after their long mid-winter break as they take Benfica Under-21s at Finch Farm (kick-off at 7pm GMT).

Paul Tait’s charges are hoping to carry on their unbeaten run in the Premier League International Cup, which has been interrupted by the mid-winter break for more than a month since they last played, holding Feyenoord to a goalless draw in Southport.

It will be interesting to see if Reece Welsh (pictured), who was recalled from a season-long loan at Forest Green Rovers earlier this month, will play any part or if he is destined for another loan spell elsewhere for the rest of the season.
