What The Papers Say - 10 December

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

The 229th Merseyside derby again dominates the Everton narrative in Sunday's newspapers.

Ashley Williams features in the Daily Mail, where the Blues centre-back promises he will keep his emotions in check during the match across Stanley Park.

Wales international captain Williams also explains how new boss Sam Allardyce "stamped his authority" on Everton's dressing room in his first few days in charge.

And in the Daily Express Williams admits the Toffees' poor start to the campaign took its toll on him personally.

The Daily Star runs with Allardyce insisting his players will have "nowhere to hide" during the derby contest, and the Mail quotes the Everton manager saying "anything could happen" in today's match.

Former Liverpool striker Robbie Fowler tells the Daily Mirror that Allardyce's presence in the away dugout at Anfield will give the Reds cause for concern – and remembers being on the receiving end of a derby defeat in Joe Royle's first match at the Toffees' helm 23 years ago.

The Guardian analyses Allardyce and Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp's shared history.

The Liverpool Echo debates how Everton should line-up for the match against Klopp's side, and includes more from Williams, who discusses the growing impact on Everton's form of his former Swansea City team-mate Gylfi Sigurdsson.

Finally, in the Mail Everton are linked with a move for Bundesliga club Augsburg's left-back Philipp Max.
