Rafa Benitez’s tactics against lower-league opposition continue to leave much to be desired. [RBM]

I was not too pleased with my performance in the first couple of minutes, as I was quite nervous. But then I felt support of my teammates who really helped me focus on the game. They did their best to help me out. They showed great support with everything they could before and during the game and this motivated me to do my best and play even better. The fans were incredible. It is the first time in my life I had the chance to experience such support,” says Mykolenko. [EFC]

Yes! Youngster Harry Tyrer — the Under-23’s goalkeeper — has inked a new deal that keeps him at the Toffees until 2025.

Looks like Mason Holgate will be staying put this transfer window.

I think sometimes when you play a three, especially some games where Andre came on, I think we played much better because we have more possession in midfield and have more numbers in the middle sometimes. I don’t think it’s coincidence, I think when you play a three sometimes it’s better. But of course sometimes a two is quite good as well, but it depends on the game really. I like to play in both a three and a two. It doesn’t bother me to play in that shape,” says Doucoure. [Echo]

Sigh. Looks like Anwar El Ghazi joining Everton could be close.
