I'm a bit gutted that we didn't draw the blue-shite - would've loved to be the cause of their inevitable humiliating exit from the Champions league.

But I do believe Villareal will do that for us. At Goodison Park yesterday, there was clear dismay at the news that they must get past the side that finished third in La Liga last season if they are to reach the money-flushed group stage, which this season could be worth as much as £15m.

"It's going to be very difficult and, if I'm honest, we haven't been very lucky," admitted Everton's Spanish midfielder Mikel Arteta, aware that Villarreal have reached the semi-finals and quarter-finals of the Uefa Cup in successive years.

"If I could have chosen who we'd play, I'd never have chosen them," said Arteta. "They like to play good football, and played the best stuff in Spain along with Barcelona last year.
