The views on this page are taken from the local and national media and do not necessarily reflect the views of Everton.
Idrissa Gana Gueye features extensively in Sunday's newspapers. The Blues' Senegalese midfielder spoke to the press ahead of today's match at Southampton and insisted Everton have the players to "get to the top of the league".
The Liverpool Echo runs with Gana Gueye's assertion that he can inject the feelgood factor he gained from qualifying for the World Cup finals with his country into his club team.
And the local paper also reports on Gueye pointing to the influence Seamus Coleman has in the Toffees dressing room despite the Irishman currently being sidelined as he recovers from injury.
The Daily Mirror includes a comment piece which runs the rule over Everton's season so far and suggests the "young talent" at Goodison Park provides cause for optimism.
The Echo and Mirror both continue to speculate over who will be appointed to the Blues' manager's post, with Watford boss Marco Silva refusing to be drawn on the subject of his future following the Hornets' 3-0 victory at Newcastle United yesterday.
The Southern Daily Echo says a visit from Everton represents a "huge opportunity" for Southampton to correct their faltering form.
And Everton are linked with a January move for German outfit Augsburg's Ghanaian centre-half Daniel Opare.
