The views on this page are taken from the local and national media and do not necessarily reflect the views of Everton.
Saturday’s papers begin to look towards Sunday’s trip to Tottenham Hotspur.
Several national newspapers feature interviews with Tim Howard as the goalkeeper reveals Roberto Martinez’s desire for Everton to focus on their own attacking threat rather than their opponents.
There’s an exclusive Martinez interview in the Daily Mirror as the boss discusses his footballing principles.
The same paper also tentatively links Everton with UAE player Omar Abdulrahman.
In the local paper, the Liverpool Echo, Martinez is quoted explaining why he believes Gareth Barry is now a ‘marked man’.
He also describes why Lacina Traore’s arrival will help him get the very best out of Romelu Lukaku.
