The Toffees greatly strengthened their central midfield position in the summer with the arrivals of Amadou Onana, James Garner and Idrissa Gueye while Andre Gomes left on loan. But Lampard is still keen on bolstering the side even further and the club have expressed an interest in the United States international, with Juventus open to a sale in January.

Everton were one of four Premier League clubs to send scouts to watch McKennie play for Juventus in Serie A, alongside Leeds United, Newcastle United and Arsenal. The player isn’t considering a transfer away before the World Cup, but Jacobs wrote on his personal Twitter account [24 October] that while nothing is advanced with any club yet he “could well move to England in January”.

Arsenal battled to beat Crystal Palace 2-0 on Friday to get the new Premier League season underway, with Gabriel Martinelli scoring the first goal before home defender Marc Guehi turned the ball into his own net late on at Selhurst Park.

Aaron Ramsdale 7 – A nervy performance. Invited unnecessary pressure onto his defence by taking too long on the ball. Good save after 41 minutes to deny Edouard. Continue reading ”              ARSENAL PLAYER RATINGS AGAINST PALACE AS WARNOCK HAILS GUNNERS”


Manchester City’s Phil Foden is an ‘absolute genius’ and England boss Gareth Southgate needs to utilise him a lot more. That is the view of former Liverpool defender Stephen Warnock, speaking after the Three Lions’ shock defeat on Tuesday night. The Manchester City attacker has managed only 24 minutes of his country’s four games in this competition thus far. And Warnock believes that starting him more regularly could be the key to unlocking Tottenham Hotspur and England captain Harry Kane up front.

He told BBC Radio 5 Live that if you want to create for Harry Kane, it has to come from somewhere. Phil Foden is a genius, an absolute genius, he could be one of the most decorated footballers of the English game because he is that good and started so young at Manchester City. He added that the young star is one of the first names in their team but he doesn’t understand why he struggles to get into the England team.  Foden is definitely the real deal, with Gary Lineker once claiming last season he could even play for Liverpool.
