What The Papers Say - 19 March

Everton's win at Stoke City continues to be dissected in Monday's newspapers.

Cenk Tosun struck twice in Saturday's 2-1 success and the Toffees centre-forward is named in the Daily Mail's team of the weekend.

Sam Allardyce tells the Liverpool Echo that Tosun's hot streak - he has netted four times in three matches - is down to a combination of working closely with former striking duo Duncan Ferguson and Craig Shakespeare and the benefits the Turk accrued from Everton's training camp in Dubai last month.

The Echo also features manager Allardyce talking about his intention to employ a full-time sports psychologist at the Club after his players' work with Dr Martin Littlewood bore fruit at the weekend, when Everton recorded their first away success of 2018.

Blues captain Phil Jagielka tells the Daily Mirror that he believes in-form Tosun is sowing the seeds for a prolific 2018/19 campaign with his current scoring run.

Jordan Pickford's display at Stoke is assessed by the Daily Post, while Charlie Adam's claim that Wayne Rooney told the Potters midfielder his first-half challenge on Rooney did not merit a red card is covered in a number of papers.

Ryan Giggs confirms in the Mail that Everton centre-half Ashley Williams will captain Wales in the forthcoming China Cup. Giggs launches his reign as Wales boss with a game against the hosts on Thursday 22 March.

A snippet of transfer speculation in the Bristol Post sees Everton linked with Bristol City left-back Joe Bryan, who is also said to interest Newcastle United and Aston Villa.
