Watch the behind-the-scenes video from the Blues’ trip to North London.

The Mason Holgate injury is much worse than we all feared, with Carlo Ancelotti now saying he could be out for 8-12 weeks. [Echo]

“All I want to do is help out everyone the best I can, so my teammates feel like I am very much one of them. I’ve not come here in any way to be like the big star, not at all. I just want to do my bit to help and I want everyone to see I am hungry to win trophies,” says James Rodriguez. As if we could love him more already. [EFC]

I mean, just watch him shimmy past defenders and spray that ball around effortlessly.

Everton announced yesterday that they have extended their current sponsorship deal with Fratelli Beretta who are primary shirt sponsors of the Academy sides. [EFC]

Leon Bailey chatter is heating up again, with both Everton and Tottenham Hotspur linked with the Jamaica international plying his trade with Bayer Leverkusen. The pricetag is apparently £40m!

Apparently Leeds United’s bid for Rafinha Alcantara has fallen through, with Everton continuing to be linked for the Barcelona midfielder. [Teamtalk, via Sport]
