Romelu Lukaku is the centre of attention in Saturday's newspapers, with the Belgian expected to return to the Everton side for the visit of West Ham United.
Manager Roberto Martinez tells various newspapers, including the Liverpool Echo, the Daily Mirror and The Times, that he hopes the 20-year-old comes back stronger following his ankle injury to give the Blues a welcome goal-boost in the final third of the campaign.
Martinez also tells the Echo he won't stop working towards Champions League qualification but stresses he wants his players to focus only on winning each game as it comes.
In the Mirror, Everton are rumoured to be the frontrunners in the race to sign Sunderland's Jack Colback. The midfielder will be out of contract this summer and is expected to leave the Stadium of Light.
Finally, in the Daily Express, Blues forward Steven Naismith explains why he once received a call from actor and compatriot Sir Sean Connery.
