What The Papers Say - 1 February

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

The Liverpool Echo heaps praise on Theo Walcott after his brace against Leicester City last night, claiming the January signing could be the player to reignite Everton's season. The Echo also focuses on Seamus Coleman's return, with Sam Allardyce hailing the defender as "an example to every player at this football club".

The Daily Express also highlights Walcott's match-winning performance, explaining the winger produced some moments of real quality in only his second start for Everton.

The Daily Mirror comments on Ademola Lookamn's loan move to RB Leipzig, with the Toffees hoping the German club can be the perfect place to further the 20-year-old's development.

The I points out that Walcott became the first Toffees player to score a double in his maiden Premier League appearance at Goodison Park since Romelu Lukaku against Newcastle in September 2013.

Finally, The Daily Telegraph described Seamus Coleman's impressive, energy-sapping run in the 94th minute last night as the moment he had come back from his broken leg. The paper also draws attention to the equally impressive partnership developing between Coleman and Walcott.
