Joel Robles impresses as uninspired Everton draw with Middlesbrough

Middlesbrough remain in the relegation mire after a dour goalless draw with Everton.
Ronald Koeman says his side controlled the game, but needed to turn that into scoring chances, which they lacked severely.

Everton extended their unbeaten run to eight games at Middlesbrough on Saturday, though there was an air of disappointment attached to the 0-0 draw. Intermittent flat performances and results such as this are why Everton are likely to end this season as "the best of the rest."

Romelu Lukaku needs to stay if Everton are to continue upward surge

Ronald Koeman remains confident Premier League leading goalscorer, Romelu Lukaku, will stay and sign a new deal at Everton.

One exceptional performance is all it takes to reopen the Romelu Lukaku rumour mill. Along with his undoubted ability, media focus following his four-goal heroics against Bournemouth helps to explain why Everton are keen to extend his current contract.

Manager Ronald Koeman views Lukaku as the focal point in this new-look team, calling on Everton to show ambition and prove this remains the best place for the Premier League top scorer.

On the back of successive bottom-half finishes, such a statement...
