Everton fans quick to praise Richarlison after Southampton win

Share

Zouma is now being tipped to start against Southampton, coming in for the suspended Phil Jagielka, who was sent off against Wolves.

"We wanted to start at home as we mean to go on". In my view I didn't feel he needed to follow through like he did.

Southampton pressed into the closing stages but despite throwing Shane Long and then Manolo Gabiaddini on, they weren't able to fashion any more clear opportunities and Everton were able to see out the win and claim three points. They were great and very lively in front of goal.

"But it was not just him".

Walcott thought he had restored the two-goal lead 23 minutes from time but Tosun was adjudged to have been fractionally offside as Gylfi Sigurdsson split the defence with a pass to allow the Turk to slide in a low cross. "They all did really well".

Leighton Baines' low ball befuddled the visitors, with Morgan Schneiderlin meeting it with a smart flick into the path of another former Saints player as Walcott prodded home.

"Great to be back at Goodison and get the three points today", the Everton midfielder wrote on Twitter.

Andrew Robertson and Harry Maguire have seen their careers progress having previously worked under Silva at Hull and when asked if the Portuguese has also changed things for Everton's defenders, Coleman added: "He has made me more aware of certain things and he is very detailed".

"I can tell you Mina is not available for the match".

Jordan Pickford did not deserve a red card for the follow-through of his clearance against Southampton, above.

They were leading through Marko Arnautovic's first-half penalty but Callum Wilson's solo goal and Steve Cook's header condemed the hosts to a second straight defeat. In every game, some moments are really balanced and you have to try to do something different to achieve what you want - to win.

"We don't want to be in a position where we're fighting for our lives in the last five or six games of the season, like we were last season, because we know this club and this group of players deserve better".
