McGeady frustrates again as Everton's old guard salvages Lille draw

Everton remain top of Europa League Group H after playing out a 0-0 stalemate at Lille.

As the final whistle sounded on Everton's 0-0 draw in Lille, it was left to events off the pitch to provide the incident and drama lacking on it, with the heavy-handed approach of Lille police threatening to emerge as the dominant story from this Europa League adventure.

Stood inside the Australian Bar in the main square when a collection of Lille fans attacked it, the episode played out like a scene from a low-budget football hooligan film. From the attackers' attempts to smash the glass windows...

Everton get back to their best with Barkley's return

Everton head coach Roberto Martinez reflects on his team's convincing 3-nil triumph over Aston Villa on Saturday.

Ross Barkley lasted 66 minutes on his first appearance of the season; it took only a handful of those to show what he adds to this Everton side. By the time Phil Jagielka opened the scoring en route to a 3-0 win over Aston Villa, the Blues' first at home in the league this season, it was as though Barkley had never been away.

Collecting a ball out of the sky in the early stages, there was a pleasing familiarity about the next part, with the customary turn and burst of pace bookended by a one-two...

Battered and bruised Everton seeking home comforts against Villa

Everton manager Roberto Martinez admits he's concerned over the Toffees' poor start to the Premier League season.

Usually an ill-timed distraction bringing league football to a frustrating halt, the latest international break felt infinitely more welcome for Everton. It gave Roberto Martinez the chance to welcome back injured players and fine-tune various issues prominent to this point.

When England named their starting XI for the midweek qualifier against San Marino, the sight of Leighton Baines warming the bench brought a sigh of relief; such is the injury list at Goodison. The otherwise potentially disappointing...

Stones injury a major setback for Everton

Everton will have to make do without arguably their best central defender, John Stones, until late December at the earliest.
Everton will have to make do without arguably their best central defender, John Stones, until late December at the earliest.

As the seconds ticked away at Old Trafford on Sunday, with Everton's late charge not enough to prevent a 2-1 defeat, there was a sharp intake of breath from the away section as John Stones crumpled to the floor inside the penalty area.

The last thing the Blues could afford was an injury to another key player, with the early stages of the campaign marred by a string of injuries amid a slow start.

International break provides valuable opportunity for Premier League clubs

The ESPN FC crew discuss whether Liverpool are better off with new signing Mario Balotelli.

Once upon a time, an international break was extremely useful for almost every Premier League manager.

In the days before foreign imports dominated England's top division, relatively few players were selected by their country -- put simply, the majority of players in the division were English, but only around 25 were called up to the England side.

Therefore, the majority of the squad would continue to train at the club -- although they might, however, use the absence of upcoming matches to spend...

Martinez must address his failings during international break

So often viewed as a distraction and inconvenience, the latest international break could be a blessing for Everton, at least on the evidence of their 2-1 defeat to Manchester United.

The need to regroup is painfully apparent. As this two-week break begins, the hope is injuries clear while the Blues return to basics and get their season on track, as the Phil Jagielka rescue act against Liverpool appears a false dawn.

Missing key players, Everton looked like the unbalanced side that the injuries always...
