What The Papers Say - 12 April

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

The future of Romelu Lukaku is again the focus of attention in Saturday's newspapers, with the Daily Mirror, Daily Star and Daily Mail claiming Roberto Martinez would like to keep the striker at Goodison Park beyond his current loan spell.

Lukaku has been with the Blues since September and Martinez says Everton has provided somewhere where the Chelsea star has "enjoyed playing his football".

In the Liverpool Echo, Martinez praises the chemistry between James McCarthy and Gareth Barry and says the duo have begun to stir memories of some of the Club’s greatest ever midfield pairings.

The paper also back Martinez's shrewd use of the loan system after it came under the spotlight this week following comments made by Arsenal boss Arsenal Wenger. The Echo call Martinez 'the loan arranger'.

The Blues boss also explains why it's critical Everton's players keep their emotions in check over the coming six games.

Elsewhere, the Daily Telegraph believe Wayne Rooney could be missing when Manchester United visit Goodison Park next weekend. The former Everton forward has a chipped bone in his toe.
