What a busy time for the Toffees. Gyfli Sigurdsson is finally wrapped in Blue from head to toe. He won’t feature today, but Everton need to turn their attention to the Europa League. It is still the point in the competition where they are heavy favorites. A win at Goodison Park is a must, and a shutout would be ideal.
