Moyes: This is my best Everton team – The Guardian

When asked whether this is Moyes’ best Toffees XI the Scot agreed, though he did point out his players’ recent failure to hang onto results, comparing it with the side of 2005, who were masters of the 1-0 win.

Baines rues lack of cutting edge – Liverpool Echo

Leighton Baines is as frustrated as the rest of us after Fulham grabbed a late goal at Craven Cottage, despite the Blues peppering the Fulham goal for much of the match.

Coleman will learn harsh lessons – Liverpool Echo

Echo reporter Phillip Kirkbride reflects on a mixed afternoon for Seamus Coleman, who after a bright and vibrant attacking display for 88 minutes, gave away possession cheaply before losing his man at the far post in the 89th, allowing the Cottagers to snatch a point. Though it has to be said, the game should have been out of sight long before then.

Jags praises Fellaini - Sky Sports

Felli was awesome on Saturday and Jags rightly highlights the big Belgian’s display, which could have brought a hat-trick and should have delivered three points. He also fields more questions regarding Steven Gerrard's already infamous 'long ball' jibes, admitting that Everton do like to hit it long at times (one such pass led to the second goal on Saturday) but also insists that there is much more to their game.

Fabulous Fellaini on fire

This is worth including simply for this quote:

"If you ever get a result against Everton, you will know that you have deserved it. They are a credit to their manager, David Moyes, and it’s good to see a great club like them up near the top of the Premier League."
