Everton made it through to the third round of the Carabao Cup with a come-from-behind victory over Doncaster Rovers. Match report and initial thoughts on the victory. [RBM]

“It’ll do him really good. He literally only came in yesterday. We’d already set the team up, so thought we’d stick with it, but I wanted to get him on early anyway. That was nothing to do with Youssef (Chermiti) – he was probably going to come off at half-time anyway.

“We want to be effective in our play, and I thought tonight, particularly in the second half, we were. We used Beto for his strengths and what he can do. There was a more assured, measured look about us in the second half as the game went on.” [EFC]

Beto was very pleased with the response he has received from Evertonians:

“It’s great for me, wow. I just came in, it was my first game and they’re already singing ‘Beto, Beto, Beto’. This is unbelievable. I just want to promise them I will do whatever it takes to take them higher [in the table]. I can’t promise goals, but I can’t promise effort. That’s my number one weapon.”

The Toffees will face a trip to Aston Villa in the third round of Carabao Cup later in September. [RBM]

Fulham are interested in signing Alex Iwobi before the week is out, with the sum of £20 million being mentioned. The Nigerian international is in the last year of his contract and yet to sign a new deal. [Daily Mail]

There could be four exits before the transfer window closes on Friday night. [Echo]

Everton’s hunt for investment is facing another setback after Government officials expressed concerns over the club agreeing a deal with US firm 777 Partners. [Daily Mail]
