Everton’s win over Southampton is covered extensively in Monday’s national and local newspapers.

The Blues climbed into the Premier League’s top four places with the 2-1 success over Mauricio Pochettino’s men and The Times say that the Toffees’ dreams of qualifying for the Champions League are showing no signs of fading.

The match reports in the Daily Mail and the Independent lead on Romelu Lukaku’s return to goalscoring form after he pounced to net the winner – his first strike since the 4-0 victory over Stoke City in November.

Meanwhile, in the Daily Express, Roberto Martinez believes that the best is still to come from his side.

Antolin Alcaraz made his long-awaited Everton debut against Southampton and he has told the Liverpool Echo that it was great to be back playing after an injury-blighted first five months of his Blues career.

The Daily Telegraph’s half-term report describes Everton as making a ‘splendid start’ to the campaign and that manager Martinez has changed the perception of the Club with his ‘transformative style of play’. The article also says Everton will go into the second half of the campaign with ‘grander’ ambitions than just making the top six.
