What The Papers Say - 25 August

by Daniel Alston @efc_danalston

Sunday's newspapers are full of match reports from the Blues' 0-0 draw against West Brom.

Roberto Martinez's post-match press conference is also featured as the Everton manager was asked about comments made by his Manchester United counterpart David Moyes.

In reaction to the Red Devils' failed joint-bid for Marouane Fellaini and Leighton Baines, Moyes had told yesterday's nationals that the Blues should 'do what's right' by the duo. Martinez's response to questions on the Scot's comments can be found in the Mail on Sunday, Sunday Mirror and the Sunday Telegraph.

Returning to the action at Goodison, the Independent says Martinez was welcomed for his first competitive home game in charge by a 'roar of approval from the Gwladys Street End'.

Further match reports, which mostly centre on the performance of Baggies goalkeeper Ben Foster in thwarting the Blues, can be found in the Sunday Times, the Observer and the Star on Sunday.

A snippet in the Sunday People exclusively claims Ross Barkley has played his way into Roy Hodgson's England plans.

The Three Lions boss was at Goodison to witness another impressive display from the 19-year-old, who dazzled for England Under-21s earlier this month with the former Fulham and West Brom boss in temporary charge.

And north of the border in the Sunday Post, Steven Naismith reveals some of the methods used by new boss Martinez and how the Spaniard tried to sign him for both Swansea and Wigan earlier in his career.
