What The Papers Say - August 28

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

Former Everton and Bury goalkeeper Neville Southall is "heartbroken" by the Shakers' expulsion from the Football League, according to Wednesday's Liverpool Echo.

The local paper also anticipates Marco Silva will name a strong team in tonight's Carabao Cup fixture against Lincoln City, which could mean first starts for new boys Alex Iwobi and Moise Kean.

The Daily Express, however, expects a much changed line-up following the Blues' 2-0 defeat at Aston Villa on Friday. Tom Davies, Fabian Delph and Maarten Stekelenburg are all rumoured to start at Sincil Bank.

Finally, ex-Manchester United and Spurs striker Dimitar Berbatov features in the Daily Star explaining that former teammate Cristiano Ronaldo cannot head a ball as well as Everton legend Duncan Ferguson.
