  2. 'Dwight's all right'published at 12:34 4 October

    Mike Richards, Unholy Trinity, external

    When Dwight McNeil signed for the club this summer, his arrival wasn’t met with fanfares and strobe lighting.

    In fact, many Evertonians seemed slightly underwhelmed by his arrival, after a disappointing final season for Burnley.

    One assist across the whole of the 2021-22 season isn’t something that screams creative winger. In fact, seven goals and 17 assists throughout his Burnley career did little to enhance his reputation amongst the fan base. However, he created countless chances during his time there, something baseline statistics fail to mention.

    His first goal for the club this weekend was a reminder of his technical ability, but also what being at the club means to him. His wild celebrations suggested a release of pressure. The relief was evident. Had Demarai Gray put away a great through ball from McNeil, we would have been discussing an assist to add to his goal.

    We’ve seen his excellent work rate and solid defensive ability since his arrival, but contributing in the final third is what we need to see more of from all our attacking players.

    At 22 years of age, he’s very much still developing. There’s a belief that once Dominic Calvert-Lewin returns to full fitness, McNeil will start to reap the rewards of his obvious determination, which combined with his gifted left foot will hopefully lead to an increase in attacking numbers. Regardless, patience and our backing is needed.

  3. Everton pair make Garth's team of the weekpublished at 17:10 3 October

    After recording their first Premier League away win of the season, Everton's Jordan Pickford and Conor Coady both earned a place in Garth Crooks' team of the week.

    "The save from Adam Armstrong midway through the second half was a game-changer. England's number one then stood up and parried a stinging shot from Kyle Walker-Peters without the slightest hint of any heroics.

    "Something has happened to Jordan Pickford's game since the arrival of Frank Lampard at Goodison Park. The goalkeeper has not only been in good form but has instilled a real confidence in his defence.

    "Apart from the fact that Conor Coady is a very good defender, his movement in the opposition penalty area is reminiscent of a striker. You can tell when a player loves scoring goals because they go hunting for them."

  4. 'It's not easy doing what Seamus did'published at 15:11 3 October

    Frank Lampard has praised Seamus Coleman for his performance against Southampton in what was his first Premier League appearance of the season.

    Before Saturday's win on the south coast, Everton's longest-serving player had only featured twice this season - in the Carabao Cup and for Paul Tait's Under-21 side.

    Lampard said: "It's not easy doing what Seamus did.

    "I'm not patronising him or putting him down at all but where he is at in terms of the stage of his career and to have a tough injury through the summer, have an operation, to not play games, then to be thrown into the Premier League is really difficult.

    "I thought he was brilliant. His character is always brilliant and he'll be much the better for getting those minutes in the bank now.

    "He'll have a little bit of a rest then go again for next week because, of course, we need him.

    "I had no doubts or worries about Seamus as a player or as a person, because he'll come in and perform and he did that."

  5. Your thoughts on Saturday's gamepublished at 12:29 3 October

    We asked for your post-match reaction after Saturday's game at St Mary's.

    Here are some of your comments:

    Southampton fans

    Douglas: I really like Ralph Hasenhuttl but I now think it’s time to change before it’s too late. We have bought some good players over the summer but there is still something missing. A fresh pair of managerial eyes may do the trick.

    Ben: A new striker was definitely needed in the transfer window. We are missing a lot in the final third, and it shows. Against a poor Everton, we didn’t show enough fight and desire to win the game. Ralph has got the players he wanted and the staff to support him and it’s still not working. I think it’s time for him to go.

    Mark: Unbelievable... Seems like the old issues from last season are coming back to haunt us! Why did we not invest in a proven goalscorer? We had so many chances that a Danny Ings-type player would've buried. We need to win games before we need players who can manage a game. Think Hasenuttl is on borrowed time! January we HAVE to buy a striker and spend some cash!

    Everton fans

    Matt: Lots of positive signs. First league away win of the season, first league game where we scored two goals and a win after we fell behind. I hope Dwight McNeil's goal and performance will be a confidence booster for him. Fingers crossed the whole team can keep the momentum going.

    Jamie: Improvements have clearly been made since the last game. Faster movement on and off the ball at the start of both halves, while we looked dangerous at set-pieces. We need to stay consistent now.

    Fergus: Beating Southampton away is just what we needed this new season, new squad depth is coming to fruition. Great to see other clubs who were laughing at us last season now in the relegation mix themselves (Wolves).

  6. Southampton 1-2 Everton: What Lampard saidpublished at 18:28 1 October

    Everton boss Frank Lampard to BBC Match of the Day: "Their goal came from a mistake from us. I thought we had control of the game in the first half and we just needed to do more, the extra 20 per cent to go and win the game, that’s what I felt.

    "I don’t think either team were at their best but their goal kickstarted us – it was a quick reaction, a good reaction and we get our two goals. Then we have a period where we need to score again when we are on top and we didn’t but we dug in at the end.

    "I’m really pleased – three points on the road in the Premier League is not easy, we all know that, so it was a good effort. Goals from set-pieces are so crucial – Amadou gets a good contact back across the goal and Conor connects really well. Then obviously Dwight’s goal was a fantastic finish from a tight angle.

    "We showed great spirit – we’ve perhaps deserved more earlier in the season and didn’t get it, but today we dug in and got what we have deserved over time.

    "The minute we rest is our downfall - it's important we realise there is a long way for us to go. We can get much better than how we played today. There are glimpses, there were big glimpses against West Ham in our last game. There's a nice competitive feel to the squad but we need to stay on it."

  7. Analysis: Southampton 1-2 Evertonpublished at 18:16 1 October

    Michael Beardmore, BBC Sport

    Whisper it quietly but there appear to be plenty of green shoots of encouragement for Everton supporters right now.

    Such is the quirkiness of statistics that a winless start to the season can become a six-match unbeaten run within the space of two games - but that is exactly the situation for Frank Lampard's Toffees.

    The summer signings of James Tarkowski and Conor Coady were not headline-grabbers but both shone in Saturday's win at Southampton and have added much-needed steel to a defence that conceded at will on their travels last term.

    That Everton boast the second best defensive record in the division so far is testament to that and if they continue to improve in attack, then they should comfortably avoid a second straight season of struggle.

    Admittedly they will not face back-lines as leaky as Southampton's every week but with Demarai Gray's continued growth supported by the arrivals of Dwight McNeil and Neal Maupay - two more understated but useful signings - there is reason for optimism in the blue half of Merseyside for the first time in a while.

    It will have escaped the notice of few Evertonians that the win drew them level on points with Liverpool - and while that might not last, it is certainly a sign of progress they can hang on to.

  8. Sutton's predictions: Southampton v Evertonpublished at 19:19 30 September

    Chris Sutton takes on Sports Team drummer Al Greenwood to pick his winners and losers for the weekend's Premier League games.

    Sutton's prediction: 1-1

    I don't really know what to make of Southampton. They sometimes play with blood and thunder under Ralph Hasenhuttl, but other times they don't seem to attack very much at all.

    Everton have been better recently but, along with Newcastle, they are the draw specialists in the Premier League this season, and I can see the points being shared again.

    Al's prediction: I can see why both of these teams are in the bottom half of the table - they are both so inconsistent. 1-0

  10. 'I am more than good enough to play for England'published at 11:26 30 September

    James Tarkowski believes that he is "more than good enough" to play for England as he aims to make the squad for the Qatar World Cup.

    The Everton defender has two international caps, both coming in 2018 after making his debut in a 1-1 draw with Italy at Wembley.

    "I’ve got full belief in myself that I’m more than good enough to play for England. Absolutely," Tarkowski told the club website., external"The opportunity is still there at the moment for players to get into the squad.

    "We’ll see how it goes. I just have to perform to the best of my ability."

    The 29-year-old has started all seven of the Toffees' Premier League games so far this season, with Everton conceding only six goals.

    He added: "I feel like I’ve started pretty well here at Everton. The team is playing well and that can only benefit me.

    "There’s a great group of people here – lads on the pitch and people in the background. There is a real positive environment here.

    "Everyone is looking up and looking to the future and we are excited about where this team can go. I’m proud to be a part of it."

  11. 'We have suffered a lot' - Lampardpublished at 15:30 29 September

    Frank Lampard says Everton have “suffered a lot” with injuries but could welcome Dominic Calvert-Lewin back to action this weekend.

    The Toffees have been without 25-year-old striker Calvert-Lewin this season due to a knee problem, while the likes of Jordan Pickford, Nathan Patterson and Yerry Mina have been hampered by injuries.

    Asked about Calvert-Lewin's inclusion for the weekend trip to Southampton, Lampard said: “We’re looking at it, we want him at his best fitness and strength.

    "Any player that has injuries finds it difficult to deal with because he wants to play and he’ll be frustrated when he can’t play.”

    However, Lampard believes the team are still strong, saying: “We’re in a good place mentally but then you look at all the big players that we’re missing.

    "Injuries are unfortunate, we have suffered a lot. But that's modern-day football.”

    Patterson, 20, picked up an ankle injury while representing Scotland against Ukraine.

    Lampard said: "He's only set to miss four or five weeks, which is a big positive compared to our first assessment."

    Katie Stafford, BBC Sport

    Frank Lampard has been speaking to the media before his side travel to Southampton in the Premier League on Saturday.

    Here are the top lines from the Everton boss:

    • Dominic Calvert-Lewin could make his return to the Toffees matchday squad on Saturday, with Lampard "considering it".

    • Goalkeeper Jordan Pickford will be available and is "good to go".

    • He described Nathan Patterson's ankle injury as "a big blow" and added: "He's only set to miss four or five weeks, which is a big positive compared to our first assessment."

    • On opponents Southampton, he said: "They’re a strong team and there’s a change of style from them this season and that’s evident to how they’re playing. They have an interesting way of playing so it will be a big test."

    • He says his team "are in a better place" heading to St Mary's this time, compared to the Toffees last visit in February which ended in a 2-0 defeat.

    • On his hopes for the eight games before the next international break, he said: "We just have to get as many points as we can. It's like a mini league and it's an interesting season but in a good way."

    • He described summer signing James Garner as "impressive" and added: "He has potential for us now and for the future."
