Everton star Dominic Calvert-Lewin sends message to Sam Allardyce ahead of January window

Calvert-Lewin has never shied away from a battle – he learned that from his no-nonsense, non-league days at Stalybridge Celtic. He remembers clearly his bruising time in the Conference North. Can almost feel the pain from an elbow in the face when he was welcomed to life a world away from the glamour and glitz of the Premier League. Shudders as he recalls having to go to A&E to check out his wounds. But that experience as a 17-year-old made him physically and mentally stronger with a new Everton contract…

Sam Allardyce admits being powerless on Ross Barkley’s Everton future

Sam Allardyce has said he will be powerless to prevent Ross Barkley leaving Everton next month should the club’s board decide to cash in on the midfielder. Barkley, yet to feature this season because of a serious hamstring injury, is out of contract at the end of the campaign having rejected a new deal with his boyhood club. He turned down a move to Chelsea on deadline day in August as he wanted more time to consider a transfer that could have earned Everton up to £35m. Chelsea are expected…

Liverpool news: Jurgen Klopp hails Everton star Wayne Rooney ahead of derby

“The Liverpool game” was his response as he pointed out his regret of not scoring in the Merseyside derby before he left Goodison Park to join Manchester United in 2004. Back then the feeling was Rooney would be rejuvenated by returning to his boyhood club and the Toffees would be tussling it out with Liverpool at the top end of the table. Instead, Everton are struggling, and England and United’s record goalscorer has failed to rediscover his best form after his Old Trafford career fizzled out. There have been flashes…

Apollon 0 – Everton 3: Young Toffees show their class without Sam Allardyce

Ademola Lookman grabbed his chance to impress as the Toffees earned their first win in dismal Europa League campaign. But the stark reminder of just how bad this season has been so far for them was that even with this victory, their tally of four points is the worst ever recorded by an English team in the competition. Lookman’s double, which included a sublime second involving 26 passes, and Nikola Vlasic’s late strike added to an impressive display from some of Everton’s young stars. Sam Allardyce was not here but…

Liverpool 7 – Spartak Moscow 0: Coutinho and co put Russians to the sword at Anfield

In a perfect warm-up for Sunday’s Merseyside derby, Coutinho, made captain for the night, scored a hat-trick to ensure Jurgen Klopp’s men go into the last 16 for the first time since 2009 – and as group winners. Sadio Mane scored twice, including a spectacular volley, while Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah also got on the scoresheet as Liverpool hit seven for the second time in Group E.
