Former Everton defenders Alan Stubbs and Sylvain Distin feature in Friday’s copy of the Liverpool Echo.
The pair assess the Blues' defensive form this season and the differences between zonal and man-marking systems.
Elsewhere, the Echo also looks at the three young players - Tom Davies, Jonjoe Kenny and Dominic Calvert-Lewin - who caught the eye in Wednesday’s 2-0 defeat to Manchester City.
And the local read also tells the story of Kieran Dowell – on loan at Sheffield United – befriending a young terminally-ill Blades fan.
