What The Papers Say - 6 December

by Daniel Alston @efc_danalston

A busy but so far memorable week continues as Friday's newspapers look ahead to the weekend's Premier League action.
The Blues head to the Emirates to face league-leaders Arsenal, a challenge Tim Howard tells the Liverpool Echo is one the squad are relishing.
Everton's glovesman also tells the Echo that Roberto Martinez has stated his desire for the players to show off an 'arrogant' streak.
And despite being nominated for Beard of the Year, Howard reveals he may be ready to shave off his now-famous facial hair.
Howard Kendall uses his weekly Echo column to talk about Everton's freedom on the field and the 'mental block' the players had to overcome at Old Trafford.
Former Blue and current Arsenal man Mikel Arteta tells the Daily Star his old side deserve their place at the top end of the Premier League.

And the Daily Telegraph claim Everton are planning to sign former Celtic winger Aiden McGeady on a pre-contract agreement next month in order to secure a free summer switch.
