What The Papers Say - 2 September

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

Reaction to yesterday’s internationals and the fallout from the summer transfer window dominate the sports pages in today’s newspapers.

Everton pair Michael Keane and Gylfi Sigurdsson both feature in the Daily Mail’s ‘Ultimate Transfer XI’, selected from players who have switched clubs since the end of the 2016/17 campaign.

The same paper suggests Blues midfielder Ross Barkley opted not to move to Chelsea because he “did not want to be rushed” into a decision on his future.

Barkley is praised elsewhere in the Mail for possessing the “courage” to decline Chelsea’s offer.

The Daily Mirror highlights Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s goalscoring contribution to England Under-21s’ European Championship qualifying draw in Holland last night.

The paper says the striker took his chance “wonderfully” and also reserves praise for Calvert-Lewin’s Everton teammate Ademola Lookman for his part in creating the goal.

Barkley is also mentioned in the Mirror, who believe Tottenham will bid for the player in January. 

The Liverpool Echo delivers an assessment on Everton’s transfer window business and, back in the Mirror, Blues centre-half and Wales skipper Ashley Williams says Gareth Bale will be the key man for his country tonight, as the Welsh target a momentum building World Cup qualifying victory over Austria.
