What The Papers Say - October 19

Welcome, Marco!

Everything you need to know about the new boss here.

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

Thursday's newspapers feature Ronald Koeman discussing his meeting last week with Toffees majority shareholder Farhad Moshiri.

The Daily Express reports on Koeman's insistence he has the full support of Everton's board and also covers the Blues' boss's comments about the boost his team would receive from a Europa League victory over Lyon tonight.

Koeman is in the Daily Mirror talking about the capricious nature of life as a football manager, while in the Daily Mail the Dutchman gives his view on Lyon's former Manchester United winger, Memphis Depay.

The Liverpool Echo previews Everton's Goodison Park meeting with Lyon, with a particular focus on defender Michael Keane saying supporters are right to 'get on the players' case' if performances fall below expected standards.

The same paper reflects on Wayne Rooney's first Everton goal on the 15-year anniversary of the England international's wonder strike against Arsenal.

Everton striker Henry Onyekuru's lively display for loan-team Anderlecht in the Belgians' Champions League clash with Paris Saint-Germain last night also features in the local paper.

And the Metro has early team news ahead of Everton's Premier League encounter with Arsenal on Sunday. The paper reports Gunners defensive pair Calum Chambers and Shkodran Mustafi will not recover from hip and thigh injuries respectively in time for their side's trip to Merseyside.

Attacking duo Alexis Sanchez and Aaron Ramsey, however, are tipped to overcome their own injury problems and line up for Arsenal at Goodison.
