Losing is a part of sports and when teams learn from losses they can be just as important as victories. Everton will need to learn from their mistakes during their 3-1 loss at The Etihad if they want to continue to threaten the top four.
The team, manager, and fans all believe that this squad is good enough to crash the Champions League party, so it is on them to rebound from their first loss.
Baines talks on the midfield options Roberto Martinez has this season. Different in years past when Everton's thin squad ultimately did them in.
With over two months until the January window opens things are already starting to get annoying on the Leighton Baines front as Manchester United push forward in their efforts to land the best player in the world. They are also expected to make a bid for superstar in the making Ross Barkley.
....nor was anybody else.
