“We were a bit out of sorts at the start but we showed great character to come back into the game and finish it. That says a lot about this team. We have some great quality…we have a lot to learn but are very confident at the minute,” says Séamus Coleman. [EFC]
Gylfi Sigurdsson has been playing the last two weeks through a personal tragedy after his 11-year-old brother-in-law died in an unfortunate firearm-related accident. [Mirror]
“I’ve learned a lot from Carlo and the coaches - especially [goalkeeping coach] Alan Kelly - about how the manager wants his goalkeepers to play. There are patterns of play the manager wants us to impose on the game, how we can beat the other team’s press. I’ve taken notes on that and took it into the game against Preston. I hopefully showed him that, what he’s teaching, I’m taking in and learning,” says U23s keeper Harry Tyrer. [EFC]

Lewis Gibson has not been on the Everton bench because it appears despite Huddersfield’s interest, he’s going on loan to Reading. [Echo]
“Tottenham and Everton are two top clubs and deserve our respect and due consideration. Jose Mourinho is indeed a top-class coach and we admire these clubs whilst remaining loyal and respectful to Bayer Leverkusen and the employment contract we have with them,” says Leon Bailey’s agent (and father) Craig Butler.
