The daily round up of Everton-related paper talk.
The views on this page are taken from the local and national media and do not necessarily reflect the views of Everton.
In today’s Liverpool Echo, the back page splash is Roberto Martinez explaining why Saturday’s clash with Arsenal is a chance to ‘prove we belong ’ in the top bracket of the Premier League.
The local paper also carries an article describing young midfielder Ryan Ledson as the ‘epitome of a modern midfielder’ and a short piece with Christian Atsu revealing that his Chelsea teammates recommended he join Everton as the Blues are a ‘great club’.
In the national press, one tabloid quotes Gareth Barry reiterating that he has not retired from international football and that an England recall would be a ‘big bonus’.
