What The Papers Say - December 19

The Liverpool Echo reports on Everton’s annual financial figures, which were posted on Tuesday. The Club announced record revenues totalling £189m - a 10 per cent increase on the previous year.

Richarlison also features in the Echo, with the Brazilian praising the range of attributes possessed by fellow forward Dominic Calvert-Lewin.

The England Under-21 international hit his fifth goal of the season in the Toffees' clash with Manchester City on Saturday.

“Dom is a great player and helps out loads up front,” Richarlison said. “He holds up the ball really well and scores goals.

“He is still very young so there is room to develop. But I think he will be really important in helping us out for the rest of the season.”

Richarlison also details how his South American teammates have helped him to already feel at home at Everton.

“I come here, I feel like I’m in Brazil,” he said. “That makes it easy for me on the pitch. My team-mates also help me a lot, there’s Bernard, there’s Mina, and that makes it easier for me.

“The fans here welcomed me very well. I already have a song.”
