The views on this page are taken from the local and national media and do not necessarily reflect the views of Everton.

As expected, there is plenty of coverage of Everton’s 1-0 victory over Chelsea in Sunday’s national newspapers.

The Blues’ performance receives widespread acclaim, with the Observer saying that Roberto Martinez’s team ‘refused to be overawed and simply made more of their chances’.

Mail on Sunday reporter Rob Draper writes that there are ‘few better places to watch the defeat of one of the major English clubs than Goodison Park’, while the Daily Star Sunday label match-winner Steven Naismith as ‘the surprise hero’.

In the Sunday Telegraph’s player ratings, debutant Gareth Barry was named man of the match with a score of nine out of 10.

Toffees boss Martinez has also been speaking about Barry’s performance in The People, describing his display as a ‘masterclass’.

Elsewhere, the Daily Star Sunday reports that Everton are keen to offer defender Sylvain Distin a new deal. The Frenchman’s current contract is due to expire at the end of this season.

The Sunday Times claim that Manchester United will make another move for Leighton Baines and The Sunday Express say the Old Trafford club are showing an interest in Ross Barkley, along with Chelsea.
