Your daily dose of Everton news and rumours
The Royal Blue Mersey team would like to wish a Merry Christmas to all those who celebrate! Everton are back in action on Wednesday against Manchester City, so hopefully you can spend time with family and friends before what should make out to be a tantalizing match.
Watch the highlights below.
“We’re very disappointed that we didn’t come away with anything because I think we deserved to. We’re not afraid of anyone at the moment. We see ourselves beating pretty much anyone we play...we didn’t get the result we wanted to, but there are a lot of positives to take,” says James Garner. [EFC]
“He [Andre Gomes] is only just back in and around it. He played a full 90 minutes [for the Under-21s] to lock in being able to take it. I wasn’t expecting him to come on that early in the game. I’ve said all along I can see a future for him at the Club and that I want him around the group, but he’ll have to earn it like everyone else. He’s had a really tough time but to see him out there today was terrific and I thought his performance was excellent once he got into the swing of the game. He was very, very good,” says Sean Dyche.
