On Demand: Press Conference

Sam Allardyce held his pre-match press conference ahead of Wednesday's Premier League trip to Newcastle United.

Everton will be looking to build on their four-game unbeaten run when they head to St James’ Park.

Key topics discussed by the Blues boss included:

- How he and his coaching team have instilled the basics but the Toffees' recent defensive resilience has been down to his players taking responsibility.

- The tough test of going to St James’ Park and nullifying their attack, keeping the home fans quiet and keeping possession.

- The need 
to remain "playing at 100 per cent", and how he expects Newcastle to be as tough a test as Liverpool.

- Leighton Baines will not be fit for the clash with the Magpies.

- Being very impressed by the 
young players in his squad and reiterating that they are the future of Everton Football Club.
