Your daily dose of Everton news and rumours
Everton romped to a win in their last pre-season friendly, beating Dynamo Kyiv 3-0 at Goodison Park - here’s three takeaways from the game. [RBM]
“Chelsea will be a completely different animal because they’re a top team and you know the things you have to do against them because of their style and quality. With the level of them, defensively we’ll be tested more than we were tonight.
“There are some things that we can tighten up with our press and our defending in the block. We made a few mistakes today, which is good to see ahead of Chelsea as we can correct and try to be ready for the challenge. It’s our first game, a game against top opposition, so there’ll be a nice bit of rest for the lads now for a day or so, then we’ll really work towards that game.” - Frank Lampard’s comments after Everton’s game.
