The views on this page are taken from the local and national media and do not necessarily reflect the views of Everton.
With Everton not in action until Monday evening, coverage in Friday’s papers is slim.
In the Liverpool Echo , Roberto Martinez has been talking about Kevin Mirallas and how he believes the Belgian winger now has the strength to match his speed and skill.
Alan Stubbs is also featured in the same paper. The former Blues skipper has been discussing the challenges he faced when he was a young player at the start of his career and how that is now helping him in his role as Everton’s Under-21s coach.
In the national press, Toni Duggan’s hat-trick in England Ladies’ 8-0 World Cup qualifying win over Turkey is covered in almost every tabloid and broadsheet, while Shane Duffy’s loan move to Yeovil Town is featured in the Daily Mail.
Finally, Daily Mirror columnist Robbie Savage is predicting Everton will beat Newcastle United 3-1 on Monday.
