Professional display sees Everton clinch Europa League progress

Everton are through to the Europa League knockout rounds as Group H winners with one game to spare after pulling off a fine 2-0 away victory over Wolfsburg.

Everton can put on their Europa League slippers, having confirmed top spot in Group H thanks to a 2-0 win at Wolfsburg. Overcoming a tough group with a game to spare is testament to Roberto Martinez and his players, especially as the Blues were only seeded third in the group.

Wolfsburg, meanwhile, will be glad to see the back of those in royal blue. One goal from 65 attempts over the course of the home and away meetings is enough to send anyone into despair and the German side will wonder how they...

Everton look to guarantee Europa qualification against strong Wolfsburg

Everton manager Roberto Martinez explained his side are taking it game-by-game as they look to reach the latter stages of the UEFA Europa League.

Everton sit on the cusp of Europa League progress, top of Group H with two games remaining. In their quest to advance, though, the Toffees must navigate what is, on paper at least, the toughest of their three away matches in the group phase.

Win against Wolfsburg on Thursday and the Blues will emerge as group winners with a game to spare; a draw guarantees qualification but potentially leaves the door open for Wolfsburg to snatch top spot in the final round of fixtures.

Leon Osman heroic for Everton in his 400th appearance

Everton escaped with a 2-1 victory thanks to goals from Romelu Lukaku and Leon Osman.

Everton and West Ham meet again in May, and it may take the two sets of players until then to cool down after this bad-tempered encounter that ended in a 2-1 win for the Toffees. The only comfort for Everton from this bruising game was the unbeaten run stretching to seven matches as Roberto Martinez's men moved to within striking distance of the top four.

There is an argument for injuries affecting the football on display, though in West Ham's case it appeared a deliberate ploy to revert to type,...

Martinez must turn to youth to get over terrible injury problems

Everton manager Roberto Martinez spoke to the media on Thursday ahead of their Premier League meeting with in-form West Ham United.

For perhaps the first time in his tenure, Everton chairman Bill Kenwright will find his club's supporters in unanimous agreement with him this week.

As Ireland assistant Roy Keane voiced a rather bizarre theory about Everton manager Roberto Martinez and his alleged pressuring of players to snub international duty, Kenwright replied with, "I'm a big fan of Roy Keane, but he does say some stupid things." One brief sentence was all it took to draw a line under the episode.

While that nonevent fades...

Football's finest rivals: Liverpool vs. Everton 1984-89

Every club has a rival, a target for so much of their enmity. Very few, however, are fortunate enough to have an opposing team so good it pushes them higher.

In Formula 1, Niki Lauda eventually came to see it as a blessing to be facing someone like James Hunt: it made him better. It was also a theme Roy Keane picked up in his recent book, as he discussed Manchester United's long rivalry with Arsenal at the turn of the millennium. "They might just have had an edge over us," he wrote, "but it was...

Arsenal: Alexis Sanchez

In a season when Arsenal have lurched from the less than sublime to the beyond ridiculous, the Chilean stands head and shoulders above anyone else. Desire, work rate, energy, application, a hunger to make an impact on games and the end product to back it up. So far...
