What The Papers Say - 26 September

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

Thursday's papers continue to look back on Everton's narrow defeat to Fulham with the Echo carrying quotes from Sylvain Distin insisting the Blues had enough quality to win the game.

The local paper also features the veteran defender saying Tuesday night's line-up was 'no B team'.

Roberto Martinez also tells the Echo that Gerard Deulofeu has a big part to play this season following his exciting display at Craven Cottage.

In the Liverpool Post there's a close look at two Everton free-kick experts - Leighton Baines and Kevin Sheedy.

The Mirror has more from Distin as he reveals the players were 'gutted' by the Capital One Cup exit.

In the Mail, Shane Duffy is linked with a loan move to either Millwall or Derby.
