Your daily dose of Everton news and rumours
“There’s an expectation at Everton Football Club [to win] every game. That’s been made very clear to me since I have been here. Every game is winnable and every game we go in to win it. Luton are working hard in games, so we have got to deliver a performance. We certainly take nobody lightly, that’s for sure, and the players know that...Goodison has been great – the crowd, the noise, the feel. It’s just about the final moment and the clinical side of a performance. That cutting edge is beginning to show and long may it continue,” says manager Sean Dyche. [EFC]

“I thought Jack [Harrison] was excellent [against Aston Villa], not necessarily because of his technical and tactical performance in the sense of being as sharp as he will get, but for someone who has hardly had any football - he has had training, I must be clear - but actual football as in playing games at this level has been minimal for a long period and I thought he was really sharp and did really well...I thought he delivered very, very well, particularly tactically. He has a good understanding of his role tactically and we know he can play. The fitness and sharpness will come but he seems clear and his body certainly does, so I’m pleased for him,” says Dyche.

A true Blue!
