May 21, 2017 01:16 PM PDT

Despite beating Everton, Arsenal will not be playing Champions League football next season for the first time in 20 years. Despite beating Everton, Arsenal will not be playing Champions League football next season for the first time in 20 years. A reckless Laurent Koscielny challenge after just 14 minutes handed Everton an opportunity to claim a first win at the Emirates, but this 3-1 defeat pointed to a team still very much in transition as manager Ronald Koeman finishes his first season in charge. More than 75 minutes playing against 10 men ought to have been enough to rectify a sluggish start and engineer a first win at Arsenal since Jan. 1996, but it was not always clear which team had the numerical advantage. Defeat extends Everton's...

Everton to prove a point, lay down marker for next season at Arsenal

May 19, 2017 09:45 AM PDT

Alexis Nunes and Steve Nicol go toe-to-toe in predicting fixtures from the final match day of the Premier League season. Arsene Wenger says Romelu Lukaku has never been a target for Arsenal, but he's been impressed with his performances. Ronald Koeman has hailed Everton fans as the key to his sides superb home record at Goodison Park. Everton ended a three-game winless and goalless stretch with victory against Watford in their last match, but an inability to affect their league position has seen those in blue limping through the past two months prior to their trip to face Arsenal at the Emirates on Sunday. Realistic hopes of Romelu Lukaku landing the Golden Boot ended when Harry Kane fired four goals past Leicester on Thursday. Now two goals behind Kane, a Lukaku hat trick is asking a lot of a team without an away win in seven...

Mixed display from matchwinner Ross Barkley as Idrissa Gueye excellent

May 13, 2017 03:38 AM PDT

Amid uncertainty about his future at Everton, Ross Barkley played hero with a goal from distance to beat Watford. It was one of the more low-key wins this season, but the 1-0 victory at home to Watford caps a home campaign that has restored belief to a packed and re-energised Goodison Park. With all 19 home games selling out in Ronald Koeman's first season, a glut of goals has provided plenty of enjoyment to a crowd suffering through two previous seasons on their own ground. A resilient display against a physical visiting team helped the Toffees to an eighth home clean sheet in their final Goodison outing of...

Aaron Lennon's struggles are, sadly, not unusual in professional football

May 12, 2017 07:41 AM PDT

Aaron Lennon may be the latest name in the headlines, but he's definitely not the only player struggling. Playing in the Premier League seems like a dream job. What can be so difficult, some fans say, about kicking a ball around, being paid huge amounts of money and accepting the adulation of thousands of people? The revelation of Aaron Lennon's mental health problems have shown that it is not so easy. The 30-year-old Everton forward was hospitalised on May 2 under the Mental Health Act. It came as a shock to the football community. Unfortunately, under the surface, many players are struggling...

Everton's Romelu Lukaku forces Schneiderlin and Gueye to dance

May 12, 2017 02:00 AM PDT

With his immediate future still subject of intense speculation, it's perhaps reassuring for Everton fans to see that Romelu Lukaku's sense of humour obviously isn't on the wane. Marauding into the dressing room, Lukaku discovered teammate Morgan Schneiderlin showering in his underwear.

Romelu Lukaku's Instagram...

Everton's revitalised home form can be platform for next season's UCL push

May 11, 2017 09:14 AM PDT

Romelu Lukaku seems destined for a move from Everton; Craig Burley looks where he may end up, and his merits as a striker. A season gradually fizzling out should not distract too much from a promising first season under Ronald Koeman, even if a run of three winless games without scoring has left Everton trapped in a league of their own between the top six and those below them. Seventh place and Europa League qualification is a good first step and repairs some of the damage inflicted in two preceding seasons. The main downside to this stumble toward the line is the lack of significance attached to recent matches....
