What The Papers Say - February 20

The views on this page are taken from the local and national media and do not necessarily reflect the views of Everton.

Wednesday’s Liverpool Echo carries quotes from Tom Davies, who has detailed his belief that playing alongside Gylfi Sigurdsson and Andre Gomes will help him to develop his game.

“Andre is a quality player, I had him behind me when I came back into the side at Huddersfield and he looked to get the ball to me all the time,” he said.

“It is good to have him in the team and it is the same with Gylfi.

“They are both very good on the ball and excellent technically and I am looking to learn from them to improve my own game.”

The local read also features boss Marco Silva, who has praised the performances of centre-back Kurt Zouma.

The Frenchman joined Everton on loan from Chelsea on transfer deadline day last summer.

“I had his name in my mind and so took the decision on the last day of the market,” the manager said.

“I am pleased because he is helping our team, he fits well in our squad.”

The Echo also reflects on the “character and resilience” displayed by Everton Under-18s in their 3-2 defeat by an experienced Widnes side in Tuesday’s night’s Liverpool Senior Cup quarter-final.

After falling 3-0 behind, goals from Rhys Hughes and Kameron Stanley saw the young Blues come within one goal of completing a second-half recovery.
