What The Papers Say - September 16

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

There is a breadth of Everton coverage in Saturday's newspapers.

The majority of publications carry quotes from Jose Mourinho, who insists Wayne Rooney will be afforded a generous ovation when he returns to Old Trafford as a Toffees player tomorrow.

Manchester United boss Mourinho also claims Rooney's United goalscoring record could prove unsurpassable.

Michael Keane has spoken to The Times about choosing Everton over Manchester United when he left Burnley in the summer.

There is a feature piece with Tom Davies in the i, while the Daily Mail is one of a number of papers to report on Everton boss Ronald Koeman holding a meeting with his senior players.

The Liverpool Echo says Koeman is hoping some 'home truths' delivered to his squad will spark an upturn in form, with the same paper reporting Everton manager Koeman's demand for his players show their 'personality' in forthcoming matches.

Former Blues skipper Kevin Ratcliffe uses his Echo column to emphasise the need for Everton's defenders to neuter the threat of Romelu Lukaku if Koeman's side are to achieve a positive result at Manchester United on Sunday afternoon.
