Watford v Everton: match preview

by

Watford have the chance to leapfrog Everton if they can turn around their blip in form. Ronald Koeman will hardly be confident he can foil Walter Mazzarri’s side. The visitors have won once in nine attempts since a run of four successive victories ended in September. To spark an upturn in fortunes Romelu Lukaku will have to start scoring more frequently, he has just one goal in his last six matches. Everton’s next top-scorer is Gareth Barry. Graham Searles

Kick-off Saturday 12.30pm

Football transfer rumours: Dele Alli to PSG for £50m?

by

Today’s fluff is going nowhere fast

Dele Alli signed a new five-year contract at Tottenham Hotspur in January, and then a new six-year-one in September, so it could not possibly be anyone associated with him who has put about today’s story that Paris Saint-Germain are ready to offer him an enormous pay rise in order to lure him to France. But somehow the Daily Mirror has got wind of a plot by the Parisians to offer Spurs £50m for the pleasure of driving the midfielder’s wages even higher.

What is more, the Mirror say that Real Madrid are also eyeing up Alli. Fortunately, Alli seems a level-headed enough sort of chap to not let such speculation distract him, despite being unbalanced enough, when in a penalty area, to be knocked offer by an imperceptible gust of wind.

Yannick Bolasie injury means Everton need to buy, admits Ronald Koeman

by

• Winger to miss rest of season due to cruciate ligament damage
• ‘We are looking for some good options in January’ says Koeman

Ronald Koeman has said Yannick Bolasie’s season-ending injury has increased the pressure on Everton to find alternatives in the January transfer window.

Bolasie, Everton’s most expensive summer signing at an initial £25m, will miss the rest of the campaign after damaging his cruciate ligament in Sunday’s 1-1 draw against Manchester United. Koeman was already on the look-out for January improvements amid concern at his team’s lack of productivity in the final third, with United’s Memphis Depay and Napoli striker Manolo Gabbiadini among the potential targets. And he admits Bolasie’s absence means it is essential Everton find a solution when the transfer window reopens.

Southampton’s José Fonte will be allowed to leave in January

by

• Portugal defender has turned down club’s latest contract offer
• Fonte was subject of bids from Everton and Manchester United in the summer

Southampton have agreed to sell defender José Fonte in January if they receive an suitable offer after the Portugal international turned down a contract extension.

Fonte, who moved to St Mary’s in 2010 from Crystal Palace, has just 18 months of his current deal remaining having failed to agree a new deal in the summer. His performances as part of Portugal’s Euro 2016 winning side saw Southampton turn down an offer of around €9m (£7.6m) from Everton for the 32-year-old, while Manchester United also showed an interest.

FA Cup third round draw: Reading’s Jaap Stam faces return to Manchester United

by

• Barrow v Rochdale; Sutton v AFC Wimbledon; Everton v Leicester
• Manchester United v Reading; Chelsea v Notts County/Peterborough

The FA Cup third-round draw brought a local derby but no glamorous rewards for the non-league teams left in this season’s competition, with Jaap Stam’s return to Manchester United as Reading manager one of the round’s few intriguing subplots.

There will be four all-Premier League ties when the FA Cup resumes early next year but the heavyweights all avoided the seven non-league sides in the draw.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan finally makes case as a Manchester United player | Jamie Jackson

Attacking midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan had not started league game in almost three months but performance showed he deserves more first-team action

Despite performing when selected against Feyenoord and West Ham United this was the big audition Henrikh Mkhitaryan dare not fluff. Not after what occurred in his previous and only Premier League start for Manchester United. Then, José Mourinho named Armenia’s captain in the XI for the derby on 10 September and with Manchester City leading 2-1 at half‑time the manager hauled him off and he was not given even a substitute appearance in the ensuing nine league matches.

Those starts against Feyenoord and West Ham were in the Europa League and EFL Cup, respectively, and given the way Mkhitaryan was dropped the 27-year-old may have wondered when another chance in the league would arrive if he disappointed in this game.
