What The Papers Say - 3 February

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

Monday's newspapers heap more praise on Kevin Mirallas following his sensational winner against Aston Villa on Saturday.

All the editions carry match reports, with each leading on the moment of magic that helped the Blues bounce back strongly from Tuesday's derby disappointment at Anfield.

On the theme, Roberto Martinez tells the Daily Mirror his side can still finish in the top four and that he is convinced he has the right group of players to fight it out until the very last kick of the campaign.

Goalscorer Mirallas also explains to the Daily Mail and Daily Express why he dedicated his winner to his watching mum and dad. An interview with the Belgian can be seen here.

Elsewhere on its pages, the Mail notes how the win was Everton's 300th in the Premier League.

Locally, the Liverpool Echo say Mirallas' high-emotion celebration with Toffees boss Martinez (above) was an indicator of Everton's true grit and determination to keep their European dream burning, while Steven Naismith, scorer of Saturday's equaliser, says the Club's injured players could all be coming back to fitness at just the right time.

Ross Barkley, Steven Pienaar and Sylvain Distin have all returned  from knocks in the past week, while Seamus Coleman was named on the bench on Saturday. Spaniard Gerard Deulofeu is also back on Merseyside and could make his first appearance since December at Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.
