Everton fans confident ahead of crucial Lyon clash

Everton face a trip to French side Lyon in a crucial Europa League group game on Thursday evening, and Toffees fans are confident that their team will pick up a positive result.

The Merseyside outfit come into the clash against the Ligue 1 club knowing that having taken just one point from their opening three group matches, they could be eliminated if they lose and Atalanta avoid defeat against Apollon Limassol.
