John Stones to Chelsea talk tests Everton resolve ahead of Spurs clash

Everton manager Roberto Martinez discusses the John Stones transfer saga and their new addition, Ramiro Funes Mori.

As Everton prepares for a testing fixture against Tottenham on Saturday, its turbulent week could prove to be a blessing in disguise. An unsettling 36 hours revealed a group of players, their manager and a chairman demonstrating bullish determination and considerable ambition.

A shock start to the week threatened to descend into a full-blown nightmare, as a transfer request from John Stones and a team on the brink of an embarrassing League Cup exit prepared to inflict potentially lasting damage.

Everton must stick to not-for-sale stance with Stones

ESPN FC's Brian McBride thinks a move to Chelsea might be a little premature for young defender John Stones, saying Everton is the perfect environment to learn.

John Stones handing in a transfer request is the hammer set to smash a giant hole in Everton's season. For a squad still short on quality and a fan base accustomed to quality players putting Goodison Park in their rear view, the exit of Stones is a painful prospect and an idea that the club should not entertain at this stage.

The club stance, largely on the back of the recent television deals, is that the books are balanced and Everton are no longer a selling club, which is something manager...

Everton protests grow louder as club fail to keep pace in Premier League

After their 3-0 win against Southampton on Saturday, Everton manager Roberto Martinez insists a settled squad is the key to his team's performances.
Everton fans have shown their disapproval in plane form.

On Sunday, Roberto Martinez exhibited typical positivity when asked whether defender John Stones would be staying at Everton in the face of Chelsea's continued heavy interest.

"That's the plan," said Everton's manager after his team had lost 2-0 at home to Manchester City. "We have enjoyed his development and the way he has grown in the last two seasons. He just puts a smile on your face when you see John Stones defending."

Earlier in the Goodison Park stands, club director Jon Woods had been rather...

Ramiro Funes Mori will need time to shine for Everton in Premier League

ESPN FC's Craig Burley outlines Manchester City's victory over a resilient Everton side, and asserts that City are now the team to beat in the Premier League.
Ramiro Funes Mori has a bright future, but must adapt his game for Everton.

Everton are expected to bolster their defensive options shortly with the purchase of Ramiro Funes Mori from River Plate. The centre-back was present during Sunday's 2-0 home defeat to Man City and Roberto Martinez has confirmed that a deal is close.

Funes Mori was born in Mendoza, Argentina, but moved with his family to Dallas in the United States at the age of 10. He and his twin brother Rogelio -- currently of Monterrey in Mexico -- were stars of their junior-high and high-school teams, and were...

Everton still a work in progress, chasing balance and consistency

Aleksandar Kolarov and Samir Nasri struck in the second half as Manchester City maintained their perfect start to the season with a 2-0 victory at Everton.

Positives and negatives are arriving in equal measure to this point, and the 2-0 defeat to Manchester City was no different for Roberto Martinez's Everton. While failing to trouble City in the manner synonymous with this fixture in recent years, with the away defence and Joe Hart surprisingly untested across the 90 minutes, there were still signs of encouragement within the team.

Seamus Coleman threatened and looked the player most likely to produce for a team otherwise short on invention on the...

Manchester City beat Everton to stay perfect in the Premier League so far

English Premier League: David Silva tries to convert a pass from Raheem Sterling into a goal but to no avail (47'). Manchester City 0-0 Everton.

LIVERPOOL, England -- Three thoughts on Manchester City's 2-0 win over Everton at Goodison Park:

1. Man City pass their toughest test

Manchester City have maintained their 100 percent record. They have still triumphed in each of their league games and have yet to concede. Everton presented the stiffest test of both City's winning habit and their defence, but Manuel Pellegrini recorded his second significant victory at Goodison Park. The first, 15 months earlier, came in the final week of a title-winning...
