Everton's 5-1 loss to Arsenal on Saturday was yet another reminder that there are problems that run deep within this Blues side. The Toffees have just one win in their last nine games and Sam Allardyce's side will be aiming to make amends for recent poor performances. Here are their next five opponents:Up next for Everton is relegation-threatened Crystal Palace, who are sat four places behind the Toffees and three points above the drop zone.
Everton are determined to land a striker and left-back in the January transfer window. Reinforcements at centre-half are also being considered by the Blues but a new forward, and competition for Leighton Baines, are understood to be seen as a necessity by Sam Allardyce and director of football Steve Walsh. Allardyce spent around £30m at Crystal Palace at the beginning of the year to aid their survival hopes and just over half of that amount at Sunderland 12 months earlier.
Southampton manager Mauricio Pellegrino urged Sofiane Boufal to bide his time for more opportunities following the Moroccan's match-winning cameo in the 1-0 defeat of West Brom. Boufal came off the bench in the 81st minute and broke the deadlock with a stunning solo goal which began inside his own half, securing the hosts a much-needed second home win of the season.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
