Tuesday’s Daily Mirror
carries quotes from Everton boss Marco Silva, who explains how Everton “have ambitions” in the Carabao Cup and says he will not be making a raft of changes to his starting XI for tonight’s clash with Southampton at Goodison Park.
“I don’t see these types of games as a game to change everything," he added. “We respect the competition and have ambitions in the competition. It’s never good when you change many players from one match to another.”
The boss features in the Liverpool Echo
, too, as he explains why Brazilian summer signing Bernard has the quality and mentality to thrive in English football.
“It is easy to analyse him, he was in Shakhtar, he is a tough player and even when he was playing in the Champions League against Manchester City, he did well,” Silva said of the 26-year-old winger. “It was tough, but he did well.
“It was a good move by our club and he had options but he liked to come here, he is working hard, he is happy.
"He is fighting to play, like all the others, but he is a good solution for us."
Also in the Echo, Under-23s boss David Unsworth praises defender Morgan Feeney – who scored his first goal since making his comeback to the side after knee surgery in Monday night’s 2-1 win over West Ham United. The victory sent the young Blues back to the top of the Premier League 2 table.
“Morgan put in a real commanding display,” he said. “He is not just an excellent player but he is a terrific young man, too. I could not be happier for him.”
