Leighton Baines' astounding offensive exploits have been overlooked

Roberto Martinez hails Everton's patience and composure in their 3-1 defeat of Burnley.

When it comes to streaks in football, very few tend to be overlooked nowadays, be it from a team or individual's perspective.

The two that perhaps stand out in the Premier League right now involve goal-scoring exploits. West Ham's Diafra Sakho has scored in each of his six league starts this season while Aston Villa, as a collective, have failed to score in five. Elsewhere in Europe, see Cristiano Ronaldo, who now scores in every game that he plays.

It's goal-scoring, or a lack thereof in the...

Eto'o offers up masterclass at Burnley as Everton gain steam

Roberto Martinez hails Everton's patience and composure in their 3-1 defeat of Burnley.

Finally, there are signs of momentum building and Everton shaking off the early season rust that plagued the opening two months of the campaign. A complete striking performance from Samuel Eto'o ensured successive league wins for the first time since April and a first post-European success of the season.

Whether as the central attacking player behind Romelu Lukaku or the attacking figurehead when Lukaku departed, Eto'o emerged from this 3-1 win as the standout performer.

Roberto Martinez tells rivals to end their pursuit of Ross Barkley

It is no coincidence that Everton's best performance of the season came in Ross Barkley's return to the team's starting XI.
Ross Barkley's first appearance of the season helped Everton to their first home league win against Aston Villa.

January will be here before you know it! To tide us over until then, here's today's batch of rumours and gossip.

Hands off Barkley!

Roberto Martinez has issued a hands-off warning to any clubs interested in recruiting Everton's star midfielder, Ross Barkley.

Despite Barkley's signing a four-year contract extension to stay at Goodison Park in July, The Daily Star report Manchester City, Manchester United and Liverpool are all interested in signing the 20-year-old.

Martinez has swatted away the...

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...
