The views on this page are taken from the local and national media and do not necessarily reflect the views of Everton.
Thursday’s papers reflect on Everton’s narrow defeat to Crystal Palace on Wednesday night.
The Echo says it was Everton’s failure to ‘do the basics’ which cost them points at Goodison.
They also carry quotes from Roberto Martinez insisting the top four dream is still alive.
That sentiment is also covered by the national newspapers, with the Mirror explaining
the manager's belief that Arsenal will drop points in their next four games.
The Spaniard’s insistence that the race is still alive is also carried in the Guardian.
