What The Papers Say - 18 December

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

Yannick Bolasie's injury comeback is the focus in today's national newspapers.

The Guardian
quotes Everton boss Sam Allardyce saying the Blues are "crying out" for the winger's qualities, with the Daily Mail reporting Bolasie is in contention to be included in the squad to face Swansea City on Monday night - but that Allardyce will be "very delicate" with his introduction back from a serious knee injury.

Ahead of Swansea's visit on Monday night, the South Wales Echo looks at why - for the second season running - the Welsh club come to Goodison Park missing a former player now wearing blue, with Ashley Williams last year and now Gylfi Sigurdsson lining up against their old side.
