As you might expect, Ross Barkley is the main focus of attention in Monday's newspapers, with the young Everton midfielder appearing on many of the back pages.

The 20-year-old, who scored Everton's stunning free-kick winner at Swansea on Sunday, is on the front of the football sections of the Daily Star, Daily Mirror and The Times, while another tabloid describes his effort as reminiscent of those trademarked by former set-piece specialist David Beckham.

In the Liverpool Echo, Seamus Coleman, the scorer of Everton's opening goal at the Liberty Stadium, says he believes the Blues have the staying power to remain in the race for a top-four finish right up until the end of the season.

The 2-1 win in South Wales moved Roberto Martinez's men up to fourth in the Barclays Premier League table and Coleman admits he now has Champions League qualification in his sights.

Elsewhere, the Mirror also link the Blues with teenage Dundee United duo Andrew Robertson and Jon Souttar and claim Martinez is set to travel to Scotland to watch the pair ahead of the opening of the January transfer window.
