Dynamic Toffees duo will give Silva selection headache

Everton secured a third consecutive Premier League win on Sunday at Goodison Park, with late goals from substitutes Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Cenk Tosun seeing off Crystal Palace. The visitors were left to bemoan their lack of clinical edge in front of goal once again, as they spurned several great chances, including a penalty kick taken by Luka Milivojevic, which was saved by Jordan Pickford.

Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea has stalled talks over a new contract with the club amid fears he might force his way out of Old Trafford. Jose Mourinho was quoted by Sky Sports this week as rather worryingly stating he was 'not confident' De Gea would sign a new contract at the club, which follows the Telegraph claiming he was reluctant to pen an extension to his current deal.
