Former striker Andy Gray tells Tuesday's Liverpool Echo that the 3-0 defeat of Arsenal was the best he's seen Everton play "in years".
The Scot says the Blues were "perfectly set up, and there was a beautiful balance to the way they played". He goes on to state his belief Roberto Martinez's men made Arsenal look "ordinary".
Also in the Echo, Ross Barkley says the big games are bringing the best out of Everton this season. An interview with the midfielder can be watched here.
Barkley's teammate Leighton Baines adds that the Blues are peaking at just the right time with six games left to go in their battle for Champions League qualification, while Ian Snodin is forced into a confession - the evertontv commentator admitting his beloved Toffees have proved him wrong after he wrote off their top-four hopes following the February defeat to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
Elsewhere, Sylvain Distin features in the Daily Express, Daily Mirror and Daily Star, the 36-year-old admitting he's being driven on by the thought of playing in the Champions League next term.
