    Luke O'Farrell

    Luke O'Farrell

  6. Lukaku helps Everton back to winning ways

    Luke O'Farrell

  7. Naismith sneaks Everton into the next round

    Luke O'Farrell

  8. Everton march on with dwindling numbers

    Luke O'Farrell

    Aside from the final 20 minutes, which coincided with an ill-advised switch to a back three, the 2-0 victory over Norwich was about as routine as it gets. It's now 42 points from a possible 51 at Fortress Goodison for Everton. Once Gareth Barry am...

  11. Flashes of quality sneak Everton past Southampton

    Luke O'Farrell

  12. Time for Everton to return to winning ways

    Luke O'Farrell

    Sandwiched between a collection of ominous fixtures, with trips to Manchester United and Arsenal on the horizon -- two of the least popular dates on the Everton calendar -- Stoke's visit on Saturday comes with added pressure. Following on from the...

  13. Baines injury is Martinez's first conundrum

    Luke O'Farrell

    Roberto Martinez has effortlessly taken the reins at Goodison Park. Though there is the occasional crease in need of ironing, such as the (lack of) set piece defending evident in the derby, the footballing transition from functional to fluent is an i...

  16. Baines deserves England chance on merit

    Luke O'Farrell
