Recapping all the Everton news from yesterday

Everton lifted the SportPesa Cup yesterday after easily beating Gor Mahia 4-0 at Goodison Park. If you didn’t get to catch the live stream, here’s the recap, the player ratings and the highlights.

Luke Garbutt.. remember him? He’s still trying to get back into the Oxford United squad after being dropped for some poor performances earlier in the season. [Witney Gazette]

Everton fans will be excused for having some pretty bitter memories about this one. Wins away at the top six sides don’t come by very often, and the Toffees looked to have sealed one at Chelsea four seasons ago. However, the referee contrived to somehow allow the game to go for extra minutes as well as completely overlooking some pretty blatant fouling for Chelsea to equalize beyond time added on.

Some great insight here on how Marcel Brands’ mind works, and how he changed the fortunes of PSV Eindhoven. [Liverpool Echo]

Talking about Brands, he’s a huge fan of manager Mark van Bommel.. and fire up the rumour mills! [Sport Witness]

Uh oh. Looks like James McCarthy is going to be called up for Republic of Ireland international duty again. [RTE]

The Blues are being linked with young Ghanaian striker Godsway Donyoh. [Football Ghana]

This young Croatian was about to sign a contract extension, and somehow had his deal canceled and is now a free agent that a number of teams are watching, including Everton. [Sport Witness]

Kieran Dowell has talked about the limited opportunities he’s getting, and why he’s such a big fan of Yerry Mina. [Liverpool Echo]
