What The Papers Say - 22 April


Monday’s newspaper coverage continues to reflect on Everton’s narrow 1-0 reverse away at Sunderland.

The Liverpool Echo features post-match reaction from Sylvain Distin who insists the Blues can still finish the season on a high after slipping to their first Premier League defeat for two months. The Frenchman says that the players will be determined to win each of their four remaining fixtures.

Also in the Echo is an in-depth match report from the Stadium of Light, with correspondent Greg O’Keeffe writing that three ‘energy-sapping games’ within the space of a week proved a tall order for the Toffees.

The focus in the national newspapers is centred on David Moyes’ comments and how he believes Champions League qualification is now out of Everton’s grasp.

The Blues manager is quoted in the Daily Mirror as saying that it will be ‘difficult’ for his team to break into the top four, although he maintains that bringing Europa League football to Goodison Park next season is still possible.

Elsewhere, the Daily Star and Daily Telegraph place more emphasis on Sunderland’s resurgence under Paolo Di Canio after they made it back-to-back wins on Saturday.
