The manager was quite pleased with the long overdue home win - [EFC]

“We delivered a good performance against Manchester United, maybe even better than the one against Newcastle, but today we got the opposite [result].

“It was a strong first half against a good outfit. I’ve been asked what we have to change to improve the home form, and I’ve said to take our chances, and today we did.

“Week in and week out, you have to be performing. I try and concentrate on the performance levels, and the markers I am looking for, plus all the other things I often speak about. If you get them right over a season, it will pay you back.”

Everton’s Third Round FA Cup match against Crystal Palace has (controversially) been scheduled for Thursday, January 4th.

He [Dele] is back on the grass with the sports science and fitness coaches, going through football related drills, but the actual freedom to come and join in with us is not there yet. Hopefully over the next week he will start slowly blending in [with the first team squad]. He still has a bit to go because he has been out for a long time, he needs a game programme, but to get him back on with us would be really pleasing for him because he has been so unlucky...the good news is that everything is settling down and he is feeling good. I saw him earlier and he said, ‘yes, I’m feeling great,’” says Sean Dyche. [Daily Star]

Get to know Jack Harrison and DCL.

Sean Dyche was in attendance at Wednesday’s match between Chelsea and Manchester United, presumably scoping out Everton’s next match against the (other) Blues on Sunday. [Echo]

James Tarkowski and Lewis Dobbin take part in a rousing game of FIFA.
