What The Papers Say - 3 December

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

The Everton coverage in Sunday’s newspapers is dominated by reaction to the Blues’ 2-0 win over Huddersfield Town in manager Sam Allardyce’s first game in charge. 

The Sunday Telegraph says Allardyce “got off to a flier”, while the Guardian focuses on the fact he became the first man to savour victory with seven different Premier League clubs. 

Attention does begin to turn towards the January transfer window however, with the Sunday Mirror claiming the Blues are interested in Sevilla midfielder Steven Nzonzi and Watford forward Troy Deeney. 

The Mail also list Nzonzi as a potential target, saying the France international has fallen out with coach Eduardo Berizzo after being substituted against Liverpool in their Champions League meeting last month. 

Allardyce tells the Mail that securing a striker is his top priority when the window reopens, but the paper believe the Toffees are also in the race for Augsburg full-back Daniel Opare. 

Finally, the new boss tells the Liverpool Echo he is aiming to at least match last season’s seventh-place finish in the Premier League and that players like Sandro Ramirez and Davy Klaassen will be given their chance to impress during a busy December fixture schedule.
