He said: “At the end of the day it’s the managers who pay the ultimate price, they’re sacked and lose their jobs, but as players we need to take responsibility.” After getting dismantled by a strong Arsenal side on Saturday evening, Rooney believes not all is lost. The veteran English striker was sat on the bench for the whole game and said he was embarrassed watching his team get tore apart. “I was actually embarrassed sat on the bench because the performance was not good enough for what we want and the way we can play.” Everton currently sit in 10th place, but are are only five points off the top seven. However, they’re also only seven points above the drop zone. The Blues host Crystal Palace this weekend and will want to get a massive three points and put the Arsenal performance behind them.

Choosing the cheapest oil your car can run on may make sense if you simply want to save money, but don’t expect the best engine performance from this. Spending a little extra on richer quality oil can have your engine running at its best, and likely increase the life of vital components.

If you’re not sure what oil is best for your vehicle, check the owner’s handbook as a manufacturer-recommended lubricant will be in there.

This applies to older cars mainly, but regular care and maintenance of your vehicle will help to maintain its factory condition.

Poorly kept engines can lose a lot of power, so if yours has high-mileage, a professional clean-out of the engine can could restore a lot of performance – as can replacing heavily worn parts. Always check your oil, brake fluid and gearbox fluid levels are optimum to get the maximum.

Cold air intake

When it comes to upgrading your engine, a cold air intake upgrade is one of the easiest and cheapest ways to boost power.

Standard air filters are made from paper, which is cheap to produce, but this restricts engine air flow and also means they need to be replaced at regular service intervals.

Investing in a performance air filter is a cost-effective way to gain easy horsepower, with plenty of options on the market. Brands such as K&N and Pipercross offer direct replacements, which are made from a cotton-based material that not only allows more air to be sucked into the engine to increase power – but can also be washed for re-use, meaning no need buy a replacement for the lifetime of your car.

When the time comes to replace your current tyres, opting for performance-focused rubber is an option if you want to improve mechanical grip.

If you’re not planning to use your car in all conditions, fitting a softer compound with less grooves allows your car to stick in the corners much more effectively – meaning higher cornering speeds.

Be aware though, they’re likely to be less effective and potentially dangerous in colder months and harsh weather, as they rely on heat and dry conditions to work at their best.

Engine remapping

From the factory, modern cars engine are electronically restricted to not delivering peak performance to counter for people who don’t service their cars at regular intervals and treat them poorly, in an effort to improve longevity.

If you’re going to look after your engine properly, having it remapped by a professional is perhaps the most effective and easy way to unlock power. Simply having a more performance-focused setting on the car’s ECU can drastically improve peak horsepower and torque.

Doing this is most effective on turbocharged cars, as it can allow for a higher boost pressure from the turbine meaning huge gains in power. Just remember to service the engine regularly.
