What The Papers Say December - 12

Lucas Digne features across a number of Wednesday's newspapers.

Everton's France international left-back discusses his "delight" at getting off the mark for the Blues after scoring the stoppage time free-kick which earned his side a draw with Watford on Monday.

Digne concedes, however, that he'd have gladly waited a while longer to embark on the goalscoring trail if it meant Everton claiming all three points against Watford.

The Liverpool Echo flags up Ademola Lookman's interview in Everton's matchday programme for the Watford encounter.

Lookman is quoted talking about the positive influence on his game of manager Marco Silva, who "gives me the licence to express myself".

Former Everton defender Michael Ball uses his column to outline reasons for optimism ahead of the Blues' game at Manchester City on Saturday.

Ball, however, urges Everton to "develop a ruthless streak" in order to make full capital on the "really good football" being produced under Silva.

The Echo also has quotes from midfielder Andre Gomes, who has spoken about the fabulous welcome he received from Evertonians following his summer loan switch from Barcelona to Goodison Park.

"I arrived injured but still received huge support from the people and I am enjoying every day as an Evertonian," said Gomes.
