Stade Nyonnais v Everton: Pre-Season Friendly
Toffee Bites

Your daily dose of Everton news and rumours

Everton defeat FC Stade Nyonnais 2-1 in first preseason friendly. Watch the highlights below.

The victory is irrelevant, to be honest, because we need people fit. We’ve already had people go down injured – not seriously, it must be said. A couple with sickness, unfortunately, too. As you know, it’s been very hot here. Whether that’s affected their bodies a little bit, and there’s still a number of first-team players to either come back from fitness, or, of course, there are still players away and having a rest because they’ve played so much football over the summer. That being considered, at the end of a very tough week, it was a decent outing for us,” says manager Sean Dyche. [EFC]

It’s a massive moment for me and my family. It feels like all the years of hard work - my mum taking me to training week after week and things like feels like a bit of a reward for all of that and hopefully I’ve made her proud. It’s been a good feeling to be out here and have the opportunity. I had a good season last season, particularly towards the end, and I stayed injury-free throughout it. I have really enjoyed the opportunity to impress this week and I’ve just tried to take it all in, take each day as it comes and I knew I had to take this chance,” says goalscorer Katia Kouyate.

Everton (thankfully) are not interested in defender Jonny Evans following a slight social media gaff.

I’ve just signed a new contract and I’m happy and my family is happy so now we just want to move forward as a club. We lost a lot of games [last season] that we shouldn’t have ever lost, or we had chances where we should have taken points from more games. It was our own fault that we ended up in that position. But it does show the type of characters we are to get out of that situation. We need to knuckle down and work hard on the training pitch,” says Jordan Pickford. [OneFootball via The Athletic]
