Michael Ball chimes in with his thoughts on the win at Brentford:

Brentford was not at their normal, confident best but in the past, we’ve been guilty of dropping our levels, never sensed blood and let teams off the hook. We smelt blood and we took full advantage of it, so huge credit to the players.

The all-around game improved, the pressing, the passing, the extra touches in midfield and I think that was down to playing James Garner, he made a huge difference. [Echo]

Dominic Calvert-Lewin admits he’s relishing the prospect of playing alongside Beto and believes the pair can “bully” defences in the Premier League. [EFC]

“It’s been a while since I’ve had someone as physical as myself to be up there at the top of the pitch and to share the workload. A lot of the time, I’ve had to be a battering ram and that sometimes takes away from other parts of your game.

But I think he’s been top. It’s not easy leading the line for the Toffees. I think other strikers who have come in the past have realised that. I think Beto has got what it takes, and hopefully, we can see ourselves both on the pitch at the same time, bullying teams.”

Buyer beware: Everton’s attempt to bring Sevilla’s Adnan Januzaj to the club would actually be a ‘real miracle’ for the La Liga side, as they could very much use a good offer from the Toffees. [Sport Witness]

The bias is incredible.
