The Toffees, and our writers, are running out of chances to make an impression Everton is coming down the home stretch in the 2017-18 Premier League season, with only nine matches left to fool us into thinking this season actually meant something.

Shane Duffy grateful to the Toffees as he prepares to step out at Goodison Park with Brighton I’m sure the irony won’t be lost on Everton ians that, with their own defence floundering, an academy graduate could be about to give them a timely reminder of what they are missing. I think it’s fair to...
