What The Papers Say - 25 November

The Liverpool Echo looks ahead to Everton's trip to face Brentford this weekend and speculates who could come into the side.

The Merseyside publication writes that defender Yerry Mina is fit and is expected to return to the line-up, while Alex Iwobi is a favourite to replace Demarai Gray who picked up a groin injury at Manchester City last weekend.

Keeping with the Echo, the paper reacts to last night's news of the fan-led football review of football led by the Government.

Conservative MP and former sports minister Tracey Crouch recommended that an independent regulator be set up to aid in football governance to stop breakaway leagues forming and give more power to the supporters of clubs.

"I genuinely think that what we’ve set out in the report is good for the game," she said. "It will set out a long-term sustainable position for English football.

“I think it will encourage growth and investment and I think it will drive improvements across the game that have been required for many years, decades in fact."

Premier League writer Adrian Clarke analyses Brentford full-backs Sergi Canos and Rico Henry and how they may prove a threat during Sunday's match against the Blues.

"With a back three in place and at least two holding midfielders, [Thomas] Frank is happy to push his wing-backs into the final third at the same time to provide width.

"Brentford’s wing-backs are terrific ball carriers who will always try to end a forward surge with a delivery into the box.

"Canos has provided 39 crosses from open play this season, the most of any Brentford player, while Henry is next on 26."
