What The Papers Say - 17 November

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

Everton news in Friday's papers is divided between build-up to the Toffees' weekend Premier League encounter with Crystal Palace and ongoing speculation over the Club's manager's post.

The Daily Express says Burnley boss Sean Dyche has called on people to "move on" from linking him with the Everton job.

The Daily Star reports that ex-Liverpool forward Christian Benteke is poised to return for Palace against Everton following a six-game injury absence, although England new-boy Ruben Loftus-Cheek could miss out after sustaining a back injury in the Three Lions' draw with Brazil on Tuesday.

The Liverpool Echo claims an Everton victory at Selhurst Park on Saturday would be the "biggest" of David Unsworth's career.

Under-23s midfielder Liam Walsh's return to Goodison Park from his loan at Birmingham City is discussed by the Echo, which is also one of a number of publications that suggests the Blues are interested in signing teenage Middlesbrough winger Marcus Tavernier.

And in the Croydon Advertiser, Palace midfielder Yohan Cabaye says his team are expecting a "tough" game against Everton, but insists the Eagles' fortunes are poised to improve, with Benteke's imminent comeback providing a further boost following the recent return of key attacker Wilfried Zaha.
