What The Papers Say – April 23

Tuesday's newspapers provide further reaction to Everton's 4-0 Easter Sunday thumping of Manchester United.

The Daily Mail features Michael Keane's thoughts on the weekend's Goodison success, the defender insisting Everton are due "a lot of credit" for meticulously following manager Marco Silva's gameplan to overcome United.

Former Everton left-back Michael Ball, writing in the Liverpool Echo, reflects on a "great day" and singles out striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin for praise.

Calvert-Lewin, says Ball, "continues to show his improvements and not for the first time, gave an experienced back four all sorts of problems".

Ball also analyses Everton's defensive record of late, Silva's team having recorded shutouts in their past four home matches – and in six of eight Premier League games following a 17-day break in February.

Gylfi Sigurdsson tells the same paper he is "quite happy" after reaching 13 goals for the season with a long-range blast against United – but the Icelander insists "you always want more".

The Echo also picks up on Diniyar Bilyaletdinov's interview with Everton's matchday programme for the United fixture, the Russian revealing he retains enormous affection for the Blues and sat with the away supporters for this season's Anfield Merseyside derby.

The Daily Mirror, in common with a number of nationals, carries quotes from United midfielder Paul Pogba on his side's display in L4.
