Lille OSC v Everton
Stade Pierre-Mauroy
Thursday 23rd October 18:00
Europa League Group Match #3

Lille - Last 5 Matches

Nice 1-0 Lille
Lille 1-0 Bastia (Origi)
Lyon 3-0 Lille
Wolfsburg 1-1 Lille - Europa League (Origi Pen)
Lille 1-2 Guingamp (Mavuba)

Everton - Last 5 Matches

Swansea 3-0 Everton - Captial One Cup
Liverpool 1-1 Everton (Jagielka)
Krasnodar 1-1 Everton - Europa League (Eto'o)
Manchester United 2-1 Everton (Naismith)
Everton 3-0 Aston Villa (Jagielka, Lukaku, Coleman)


Lille are in a precarious state at the moment after losing at home to bottom of the league Guingamp 2-1 in their last match after a 3-0 thrashing at the hands of Lyon the match before. Only Guingamp (6) have scored less goals in Ligue 1 this season than Lille who have only managed 8 goals in 10 matches. No team have conceded less goals than Lille (7) this season and 5 of those goals came in their last couple of matches. Lille have kept 6 clean sheets this season and drew both their Europa League matches 1-1. Lille are yet to score from open play in Group H this season (1 Penalty, 1 Free kick).

Divock Origi was bought by Liverpool in the summer and loaned back to Lille this season (a decision they possibly regret) and the Belgian is the main source of goals for Lille. Origi has scored 4 goals in their 10 matches this season and two of those have come from penalties. There are rumours that Liverpool will be looking to recall the Belgian in January.

Possible Line ups


Everton have the opportunity of open a potential 4 point gap at the top of the group should they beat Lille on Thursday (and Wolfsburg & Krasnodar draw) in Group H of the Europa League. Everton snatched a 1-1 draw against Kranodar in Russia last time out in Europe with Samuel Eto'o scoring a late equaliser and Leighton Baines grabbing his second assist in as many games in Europe this season. This will be Everton's first matches against French Opposition in any competitive fixture. Only 5 teams have scored more goals than Everton in the opening two fixtures of the group stages this season which is impressive considering the difficulty of the teams in Group H

Leighton Baines has arguably been Everton's best player so far this season and has 7 assists and 2 goals in 10 matches this season. He would have been almost 1 in 1 this season for goals and assists had he not spurned his penalty against Manchester United. Only Cesc Fabregas (7), Dusan Tadic (7) and Gylfi Sigurdsson (6) have more Premier League assists than Leighton Baines (5) in the Premier League so far this season.

Interesting stats comparison between Lukaku and Origi, it's been widely accepted that Rom hasn't been playing well but the younger pretender is hardly setting the world alight in a less demanding league.

Strong rumours of around 12k going over there on Thursday. If true then that's phenomenal.

It's just great knowing your teams going to be on the tele on a Thursday. I would have loved to be able to have gone to this, but austerity and paying that slag Esther Mcveys expenses have wiped me out till the new year. If we qualify I should be going to some of the games in the knock out stages. Loads of blues living in the town where I live are going. Been offered lifts and all sorts, but never got around to renewing my passport. I'm afraid it's the tele for me. All you lads who are going have a good time. Vids and Pics please. No excuses most of you have smart phones. Hahaha. I am so jealous :(
