Everton boss Roberto Martinez has admitted he is ready to give youth a chance this season at Goodison Park.
Martinez has been impressed by the current crop of young talent coming through at Everton since taking over from David Moyes this summer.
The likes of Ross Barkley, John Stones and loan signing from Barcelona Gerard Deulofeu have all caught the eye in pre-season and Martinez admits they will have a big role to play this term.
"I saw a lot of our young players and they're going to have big roles in our season so in that respect I'm very pleased," Martinez told the Liverpool Echo.
"I've taken a lot of information in."
