“We have a strong team, a good team, we are building something and can be in Europe. If it doesn’t happen this season, then definitely next season. In a few years we want to be near the top of the league,” says Lucas Digne. [EFC]

Play for Everton as that’s what I’ve been working hard for if I’m honest https://t.co/CTa3V5tl0J— Yannick Bolasie (@YannickBolasie) July 10, 2020

“I changed him [Iwobi] against Tottenham because he had a little problem with his hamstring. Against Southampton I changed him to put more energy on that side and above all to change the system to a line of five. It is true he didn’t score, it’s true that he can do better sometimes but it’s also true that I have a lot of confidence in him,” says Ancelotti. [The Guardian]
John Stones might not be making a return to the Blues, as the 26-year-old is reportedly looking to fight for his place at Manchester City next season. [Daily Mail]
“I think, with his [Sigurdsson’s] quality, to play a defensive role is easier. Behind you have more space compared to if you’re playing as a number 10. It’s the easiest way to play with the quality of Sigurdsson. I’m satisfied with his performances, he hasn’t played every game from the start but it was only for the fact he was not 100% fit. He had a fever during the lockdown and it has taken time for him to recover properly,” says Ancelotti. [Echo]
