Many of today's newspapers feature interviews with David Unsworth as the Blues boss explains why Sunday's Premier League visit of Watford is "like a cup final".
Following Thursday night's 3-0 defeat at Lyon, which ended any hopes of the Toffees progressing from the Europa League group stage, Unsworth is quoted in the Daily Mail discussing "a huge game for me and a huge game for the Club" against the Hornets this weekend.
The Liverpool Echo reveals how Unsworth has left the Everton squad "in no uncertain terms" as to the importance of that match, while various publications run with the positive news that Cuco Martina was released from hospital and travelled back with the first team from France after being taken off on a stretcher during the match in Lyon.
Elsewhere, the Bolton News has an interview with Bolton manager Phil Parkinson on why Everton Under-23s full-back Antonee Robinson - currently on loan with the Trotters - has the right attitude and talent to carve out a bright future with the Blues.
