While there’s no word on whether Uncle Pauly’s robot will be making an appearance, Sylvester Stallone is set to inspire the Goodison Park crowd to back their Toffees on Monday.

The “Rocky” and “Expendables” star is making a movie with Merseyside boxer Tony Bellew, and will don an Everton shirt for a video message at halftime.

Stallone and Bellew will star in the latest “Rocky” film, called “Creed”. Stallone reprises his role as Rocky Balboa, now trainer to Apollo Creed’s grandson. Bellew plays the rival boxer.

Need a favour from you blue boys tonight! If your in Goodison Park then please stay in your seat at halftime for the short message #COYB

So, stick around at half-time to help out one of our own in @TonyBellew and watch a message from a special friend of his! #EFCvWBA
