What The Papers Say - 1 December

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

Sunday's papers feature reports and reaction from Everton's superb win over Stoke.

Two men dominate the coverage - Gerard Deulofeu and Romelu Lukaku.

The People says Roberto Martinez has challenged Lukaku to score 25 goals this season to keep Everton in the top four.

The Telegraph describes Deulofeu as 'masterful' in their match report, while the Daily Star says Jose Mourinho is 'cunning' in deciding to loan out Lukaku.

The Mirror also pick up on the 25 goals line, saying Everton will aim to extend the loan deal for Lukaku for a second season if they make the Champions League.

And the Sunday Express carries quotes from Lukaku on BBC's Football Focus when the Belgian said staying at Everton and playing in the Champions League 'wasn't a bad idea'.
