Everton midfielder Amadou Onana insists there are positives to be found in the team’s narrow defeat to Arsenal:
“It was disappointing afternoon, of course, because I think we did quite a lot of things in the right way. I think there’s a positive to take from the defensive performance. We defended pretty well and stayed compact because we knew they were going to try to find Odegaard and Vieira between the lines, but they were very good today.
We stick together as a team, and we will build from this performance and take on the next one.” [Echo]
777 Partners have provided Everton money on an interim basis “to help with short-term working capital requirements and the stadium build”. [The Athletic] (paywall)
Michael Ball on the Arsenal loss:
“The game I thought was very, very passive. Sean Dyche set up the side he thought would have been best but straight from kick-off we were guilty of letting Arsenal - and not just them, Fulham and Wolves too - dictate possession. What happens then is exactly what the opposition want to happen.” [Echo]
Everton fans showed their class by looking beyond events on the pitch to pay tribute to one of their own against Arsenal. [Echo]
