What The Papers Say - 25 November

David Unsworth's press conference ahead of tomorrow's Premier League visit to Southampton is comprehensively covered in Saturday's newspapers.

The Daily Express features Unsworth saying whoever Everton appoint as manager will be taking on a "wonderful job".

The Daily Telegraph and Liverpool Echo both carry quotes from Unsworth talking about Michael Keane. In the Echo, the former Toffees defender calls current Blues centre-back Keane a "top young player", while Keane is described as "honest and humble" by his boss in the Telegraph.

The Daily Star says Republic of Ireland's former Leicester City and Celtic boss Martin O'Neill is the new bookmakers' favourite for the Everton manager's post.

Back in the Echo, Unsworth reveals he expects Maarten Stekelenburg to to be sidelined for a further "two or three weeks" after the goalkeeper underwent groin surgery.

And in the same paper the Blues boss says he cannot "bawl and shout all the time" in the dressing room.

The Telegraph reports that referee Anthony Taylor did not believe he was deceived by Everton striker Oumar Niasse in the Toffees' game at Crystal Palace last week.
