What The Papers Say - September 17

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

Everton coverage in Sunday's newspapers is dominated by build up to the Blues' trip to Manchester United this afternoon.

Skipper Phil Jagielka tells the Daily Telegraph his team need to "look in the mirror" following a poor spell of form, while the Daily Star backs Ronald Koeman to "come out fighting" in a bid to revive his team's fortunes.

Ashley Young warns United to beware the dangerous Wayne Rooney at Old Trafford, while Kevin Kilbane tells the Liverpool Echo that Rooney's "winning mentality" will be vital to the Blues as they bid to derail today's hosts' unbeaten start to the season.

The same paper reports manager Koeman's plea for patience with summer signings Sandro Ramirez and Davy Klaassen.

And the Daily Mail claims United will not afford Rooney any special welcome as he returns to play against his ex-club, after the Red Devils feted former star Cristiano Ronaldo four years ago, only for the Portuguese to score the winner for Real Madrid on his first game back at his old stomping ground.
