Royal Blue: Everton's battle for European football and its importance to Carlo Ancelotti
Friday, 7 February
Host Phil Kirkbride speaks to Chris Beesley and Sam Carroll ahead of Everton's final game before their winter break at home to Crystal Palace.
There's plenty on the agenda with James McCarthy's return to Goodison Park discussed and the potential merits of Wilfried Zaha's proposed move from the Eagles to the Blues last summer also debated.
Given Everton's dramatic rise over the past couple of months, going from being in the relegation zone at the time of Marco Silva's sacking to the fringes of a Europa League place under Carlo Ancelotti, the prospect of qualifying for Europe and the importance of European football come under the microscope.
The development of Dominic Calvert-Lewin during the Blues climb up the table is examined, while the new additions to Goodison Park's exterior prompt a conversation regarding Alisher Usmanov's possible involvement in the proposed new stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock.
