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…

Mohamed Salah injury scare: Jurgen Klopp reveals problem picked up in Everton draw

Salah scored Liverpool’s opener against Everton at the weekend with a brilliant curling effort from the edge of the box. But Liverpool’s lead continued to look precarious as the game went on with Klopp’s side unable to find a second goal. The Reds boss made a bold decision to take off Salah just after the hour mark for Roberto Firmino and it proved costly 10 minutes later when Wayne Rooney equalised from the spot. Klopp was heavily scrutinised for his game plan heading into the match by dropping Philippe Coutinho…

Liverpool v Everton: Wayne Rooney reveals how Dejan Lovren helped him score penalty

Dominic Calvert-Lewin went down under a challenge from Dejan Lovren and Wayne Rooney calmly stepped up to dispatch the spot-kick as it finished 1-1.

He claimed the extra time taken recovering the ball gave him a moment to compose himself before smashing his effort…

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…

Have Arsenal finally found a cure for the counterattack? | Jacob Steinberg

A common sight at the Emirates Stadium in the past decade has been the away team storming into acres of space to seek reward on the counterattack, with Arsenal’s defensive players nowhere to be seen. The weakness has often flared in the biggest games and one of the best examples was the goal Cristiano Ronaldo scored to clinch Manchester United’s victory over Arsène Wenger’s side in their Champions League semi-final in 2009. United ruthlessly exploited Arsenal’s gung-ho approach, breaking at exhilarating speed, Ronaldo hurtling into the area to finish off…

Wayne Rooney goal: Everton strike better than Man Utd legend David Beckham – Robbie Savage

That is according to BT Sport pundit Robbie Savage. Rooney took his chance first time to score from in his own half after Joe Hart had fluffed a clearance. Hart was way out of his goal when Rooney ran onto the ball and went for goal. Everton were already two up at the time thanks to Rooney. The ball sailed into the net to complete the former England captain’s hat-trick. Ashley Williams then scored as Everton ran riot in front of new manager Sam Allardyce, eventually winning 4-0. And former…
