What The Papers Say - 17 October
A round-up of the day's paper talk.
The views on this page are taken from the local and national media and do not necessarily reflect the views of Everton.
Thursday's newspapers concentrate largely on Darron Gibson's knee injury.
The Daily Express claims the Irishman's season is over after he injured his cruciate ligament on Tuesday night.
The Daily Star also report on Gibson's unfortunate setback.
Back in the Express, England manager Roy Hodgson has reportedly challenged England's young guns, including Ross Barkley, to force their way into his World Cup squad.
And in the Liverpool Echo, Gareth Barry says Everton are showing levels of performance synonymous with Champions League qualification.
