For the first time since becoming manager of the club, Everton’s Carlo Ancelotti has been able to name a consistent line-up in his side.

Ancelotti made just one change to the team that beat Brighton 1-0 last weekend as he brought in striker Dominic Calvert Lewin for Bernard.

Abdoulaye Doucoure is set to make his first competitive appearance for Everton after the midfielder was signed from Watford shortly before the closure of the transfer window.

The French midfielder is expected to start on the bench with Allan and Andre Gomes keeping their places in midfield.

For opponents Tottenham, Jose Mourinho has made five changes to his side. Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, who joined from Southampton this summer, makes his debut for Spurs in midfield alongside first-team regulars Harry Winks and Moussa Sissoko.

In attack, Dele Alli and Steven Bergwijn are preferred to Gareth Bale and Lucas Moura – both of whom were on target at Southampton – while Son Heung-min starts ahead of Erik Lamela.

Manchester United’s Europa League match against FC Rostov is a trip into the unknown but Jose Mourinho believes they are ready for anything their opponents can throw at them.

Mourinho has selected a 20-man squad, with the 16 players who travelled to Russia and four more who did not make the cut – Michael Carrick, Wayne Rooney, Phil Jones and Ashley Young, who was not registered for this season’s competition.

Rooney could be in line for his first appearance since suffering a muscle injury in the Europa League game against St Etienne on February 22, while Carrick was rested for United’s FA Cup win over Chelsea on Monday.

Rostov, who beat Sparta Prague in the previous round on away goals after a 4-3 aggregate defeat, have won their last four matches in all competitions since losing 3-2 at home to domestic rivals Zenit St Petersburg.

Middlesbrough will be hoping to continue their unbeaten start to the Europa League campaign when they take on Israeli side Maccabi Tel Aviv at the Riverside Stadium this evening.

Aitor Karanka makes just two changes from the side that drew 0-0 with Stoke City in the Premier League on Saturday, with David Nugent and Cristhian Stuani replacing Stewart Downing and Gaston Ramirez in attack.

The hosts have already qualified for the knockout rounds of the competition so will be hoping that they can finish top of Group A by avoiding defeat tonight, while a win will guarantee them finishing as group winners.

Maccabi go into tonight’s game knowing that nothing but three points will do if they are to have any chance of progressing to the next stage of the competition, as they are currently five points behind third-placed Astra Giurgiu.

Shota Arveladze makes just one change from his side’s 2-1 victory over FC Ashdod on Sunday, with Dor Micha coming in for Shlomi Azulay.

We now have the Europa League semi-finals and we are preparing lineups for the big showdowns. Inter Milan will take a 2-0 advantage to Bayer Leverkusen on Monday, while Manchester United will travel to Spain to face Sevilla with a 0-0 draw.

Inter Milan:

Samir Handanovic; Milan Skriniar, Diego Godin, Stefan de Vrij; Kwadwo Asamoah, Marcelo Brozovic, Valentino Lazaro; Antonio Candreva, Christian Eriksen, Matteo Darmian; Romelu Lukaku.

Manchester United:

David de Gea; Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Victor Lindelof, Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw; Scott McTominay, Paul Pogba; Juan Mata, Bruno Fernandes, Marcus Rashford; Anthony Martial

Preview: Arsenal v Rennes

Arsenal will look to make home advantage count when they welcome Rennes to the Emirates Stadium for the second leg of their last-16 Europa League tie.

The Gunners are in the driving seat having won 3-1 in France last week, but they have been far from convincing domestically and were dumped out of the FA Cup by Manchester United on Friday night.

Unai Emery’s men must now rally around and book their place in the next round, where they could face Napoli or Red Bull Salzburg.

Rennes’ away record has been abysmal this season, with five defeats from six games in all competitions, so Arsenal should be confident of securing victory. We say: Arsenal 2-0 Rennes

Arsenal will be desperate to bounce back after a tough week on and off the pitch, but their job is made easier by playing at home against a Rennes side low on confidence. Emery’s men should have more than enough quality to get over the line and book their place in the quarter-finals.

The Europa League final will take place in Stockholm on Wednesday, where Manchester United and Ajax will go head-to-head at the Friends Arena.

United’s route to the Swedish venue has been far from convincing. They have suffered some embarrassing results on their way to the final, but they have also shown their class, beating Saint-Etienne, Anderlecht and Celta Vigo en route.

The Red Devils are just one step away from winning the third trophy of Jose Mourinho’s debut campaign at Old Trafford. They have already won the EFL Cup and secured qualification for next season’s Champions League with a sixth-placed Premier League finish.

Mourinho is still without Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Marcos Rojo, who are both out for the rest of the season with knee ligament damage. Luke Shaw remains a doubt with a foot injury.

Ajax are without Nick Viergever, who was sent off in their semi-final win over Lyon. Joel Veltman is expected to replace him at centre-back alongside Davinson Sanchez and Matthijs de Ligt.

The Dutch giants are guaranteed to return to the Champions League next season after finishing second in the Eredivisie table behind Feyenoord
