What The Papers Say - 14 October

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

Leighton Baines features heavily in Monday's newspaper round-up as the England left-back previews the crucial World Cup qualifier against Poland.
 
The Blues man was on media duty ahead of the Wembley showdown and his pre-match thoughts appear in the Times, the Express and Mirror.
 
Having missed out on the last World Cup under Fabio Capello, Baines says he is determined to make amends by getting both himself and England on a plane to Brazil next summer.
 
The Guardian and Telegraph carry quotes as Baines recalls the moment he found out he would not be going to the last World Cup in South Africa.
 
The Express and the Independent also share opinion on the 28-year-old's battle with Ashley Cole for the Three Lions role, with both papers of the belief that Baines is ready to finally overtake his Chelsea counterpart.
 
Meanwhile, in the Liverpool Echo, Baines talks about another England hopeful, Ross Barkley, insisting the youngster must now get used to being a 'marked man'.
 
Phil Jagielka has called on England to put in an improved performance against the Poles, while also revealing he could have played for Tuesday's opponents.
