Everton's 0-0 draw away at Lille is widely reported in today's papers.

The Blues sit top of Group H after their battling draw away in France in the Europa League.

In the Liverpool Echo, Gareth Barry says Everton can make good progress in the competition, and predicts the point gained across the channel could well be a crucial one.

Ross Barkley supports that assertion, adding that he believes two more wins from the Blues' remaining three fixtures should see them through to the knock-out stages.

Meanwhile, Roberto Martinez has expressed his 'immense pride' over the travelling support that made the short journey to Lille.

Martinez's thoughts on the draw are in the Times

, while the Daily Telegraph has the Spaniard suggesting the state of the Stade Pierre-Mauroy pitch hindered Everton's free-flowing, passing game.

Finally, in the Daily Mirror, Phil Jagielka's shackling of Divock Origi earned the praise of his manager, who says the centre half is back to his best.
