Sunday's newspapers are full of reaction to Everton racking up their record Premier League points tally with a seventh straight top-flight win.
In the Liverpool Echo, boss Roberto Martinez says his side must now have the belief they can go on and qualify for the Champions League after leapfrogging Arsenal into fourth.
The paper's columnist, Lee Carsley, adds that Saturday's 1-0 victory over Sunderland showed the importance of having options and praises the 'outstanding' John Stones. The former Toffees star also says midfielders Gareth Barry and James McCarthy are making a difference in the tough, tight games.
Another ex-Blue to assess the current squad is Andrew Johnson, with the striker telling the Echo that the Goodison Park roar can carry Martinez's men into the Champions League.
In the Sunday People, Martinez says Ross Barkley is the best young English talent he has seen, while many of the national newspapers display photographs of Saturday's minute's silence in memory of the 96 Liverpool supporters who died at Hillsborough 25 years ago this week.
Finally, the Sunday Mirror say Arsenal's struggle to overcome Championship Wigan in the FA Cup semi-final at Wembley will have put “another coal into Everton’s roaring furnace of confidence.”
