Trouble at Premier League club Everton: The Toffees have suspended one of their professionals for police investigations.
Liverpool - It wasn't exactly a brilliant season.
Everton * ended the season in tenth place in the Premier League *.
Too little for its own claims, the former successful club would only be too happy to build on previous triumphs.
Nine championship titles, five FA Cup victories, one winner of the European Cup Winners' Cup - a very decent result.
There is actually no lack of prominent players in Liverpool: James Rodriguez, Jordan Pickford, Richarlison, Dominic Calvert-Lewin - quality was and is definitely there at the Toffees.
And with Carlo Ancelotti they also had a coach who has already had a lot of success.
