Your daily dose of Everton news and rumours
“I wouldn’t say I’m frustrated. I think if you can’t win, you don’t lose, and we were more than secure in the game. If you ask me, I’d much rather be the team that’s got it in your hands and a point or two more on the board and maybe a game more than someone as well, so I think that probably in that situation that’s what you want, but the pressure is huge anyway.
“For all the talk about pressure, more or less, it’s only actions at this point. It’s how we act and how we perform in these games.” - Frank Lampard after the tame draw yesterday.

What To Watch
There’s a big game in the Premier League, with the North London derby taking place as Arsenal visit Tottenham. A victory for the visitors will be decisive for the race for fourth place, and possibly less pressure for Everton should they need a result at the Emirates on the last weekend of the season.
