What The Papers Say - 22 October

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

Two Everton legends feature in Sunday's newspapers.

Peter Reid tells the Daily Mirror that Arsene Wenger, manager of today's opponents Arsenal, is a strong character and deserves a statue outside the Gunners' Emirates Stadium.

Reid's fellow two-times title winner at Goodison Park, Andy Gray, is in the same paper talking about Everton's performance against Lyon on Thursday night.

Toffees defender Mason Holgate is the subject of a feature interview in the Sunday Express, while boss Ronald Koeman's Goodison reign is discussed in the Mail on Sunday and Daily Mirror.

The Mail also carries a story on Henry Onyekuru, the Everton striker currently on loan with Belgian team Anderlecht.

The Liverpool Echo assesses the early-season impact of the Toffees' summer signings, while comments from Phil Neville feature in the same paper, with the ex-Blues skipper backing "quality" Koeman to succeed at Goodison.

There is a story in the Daily Star about Wayne Rooney using a secret profile to play online video games.

And build up to Everton's Premier League match against Arsenal is included in all of today's papers, with key Gunners duo Alexis Sanchez and Aaron Ramsey tipped to return from injury for the game on Merseyside and visiting boss Wenger talking about turning 68 today.
