Everton v Manchester United: What has been said?

“The money Everton have put in, you expect the club to making forward steps,” Leon Osman told talkSPORT.

“Not finding the club languishing at the bottom of the Premier League, struggling for points, struggling for form, struggling for any kind of performance really, so it’s a very worrying time for the club.

“I think that’s been a criticism of this team all season, you’re looking round and you’re wondering who are the characters? Who are the leaders?

“You saw the way Alex Iwobi give the ball away [in the defeat to West Ham] just as they got themselves back into the game, and Everton, defensively, are so exposed.

“You’re already falling behind in games, then you’re wondering who’s got the character to get on the ball and try and make things happen.

“And for the majority of this season that’s fell on the shoulders of young Anthony Gordon, which is incredible to say for a guy who’s just broken into the team, really young in age, really young in career [and he’s] carried the fight of such a huge club of such history of characters.”
