Tom Davies wants Everton to approach their Europa League opening encounter with Atalanta BC as a chance to "show the competition how good we are."

Tom Davies has urged Everton to approach their Europa League opening encounter with Atalanta BC as a chance to "show the competition how good we are".

The 19-year-old has featured in all four of the Toffees' ties in the tournament, most notably impressing at right wing-back in the 1-0 third qualifying-round win in Ruzomberok.

Davies insists that an away game against an Atalanta team that finished fourth in Serie A last term represents a perfect chance for the Blues to stamp their authority on their group.

"This is a game we need to win, especially coming after Saturday's result," Davies, referring to the 3-0 defeat by Tottenham Hotspur, told the Everton website. "We want to get back to winning ways immediately.

"It is the first game in the group and I am sure the lads will be up for it and determined to get the three points straight away.

"I have enjoyed the Europa League games a lot. It is the first time I have played in Europe, so for me it is all new and exciting.

"As a player, I have always wanted to win a European trophy. We have the opportunity to do that now. This game is a chance to show the competition how good we are – and I am sure we will do that."

Group E also contains French outfit Lyon and Apollon Limassol of Cyprus.
