What The Papers Say - 16 April

The Blues feature heavily in Tuesday's local and national newspapers ahead of the big game against Arsenal at the Emirates.

Off the field, the Daily Express, Daily Mail, Daily Star, Daily Telegraph, Liverpool Echo and the Guardian all document yesterday's poignant memorial service on the 24th anniversary of the Hillsborough disaster.

Everton chairman Bill Kenwright was among those to address the congregation with a reading, while manager David Moyes was also in attendance on an emotional day on Merseyside.

Meanwhile, David Moyes appears in the Liverpool Echo saying his side head to the Emirates in confident mood.

The Blues boss admits Everton are the outsiders for the Champions League but is targeting a win against Arsene Wenger's side to put them firmly in the frame.

Phil Jagielka is in the Express, Mail, Guardian and the Times speaking of his belief that the Blues can record a first victory at Arsenal since 1996.

And former Everton and Arsenal defender Martin Keown tells the Mail that tonight's game is decisive for the Blues' Champions League hopes.

The Express and the Mail both carry a story saying the Blues have been beaten to the signature of Athletic Bilbao defender Fernando Amorebieta - with the Venezuelan international reportedly on the verge of signing for Fulham.

The Echo speak to a young Blue who had his wallet stolen outside the Everton One store the day after his ninth birthday. The family thanked Club staff who invited him and his grandmother into the stadium and presented them with signed memorabilia and match tickets.

The same newspaper also features Darron Gibson's backing for a group of Evertonians who are set to cycle back from the Stadium of Light after Saturday's game at Sunderland.

The expedition, which will involve members of numerous official Everton supporters' clubs, are aiming to raise £50,000 for Everton in the Community and the Everton Former Players' Foundation. Click here to donate.
