Latest Royal Blue podcast

Adam Jones is joined by Chris Beesley and Gavin Buckland for another positive edition of the Royal Blue podcast!

That's because Everton secured their 11th away Premier League win of the season on Sunday afternoon with a 1-0 victory over West Ham United thanks to Dominic Calvert-Lewin's goal.

The panel discuss the major improvements on show from the Blues, including standout performances from a lot of players, and look ahead to how they can take that into their next match against Aston Villa.
