What The Papers Say - 31 October

The Liverpool Echo publish quotes with Everton midfielder Amadou Onana who discusses the aspects of his game he is looking to improve.

In an interview originally with evertontv following the goalless draw at Fulham, the Belgian admitted he must be more "decisive" in the final third.

"I want to be decisive for the team, scoring and assisting," he said. "That’s what I am working on now. I hope it will pay off very soon.

"I couldn’t have wished for a better manager [than Lampard], in terms of the fact he played my position. He is giving me very good advice on which points I can improve in my game. That’s definitely helpful."

Meanwhile, Dutch news outlet Eindhoven Dagblad has suggested the Blues could recall Jarrad Branthwaite from his loan spell at PSV Eindhoven in January.

The 20-year-old defender has made nine appearances for the Eredivisie side this campaign, scoring one goal - a vital strike in a 4-3 win over rivals Feyenoord last month.

Branthwaite also impressed in the Europa League last week, playing 81 minutes of PSV's 2-0 home win over Arsenal.
