Everton boss Marco Silva was in a feisty mood with reporters and his pre-Cardiff press conference.

The Portuguese is usually calm and measured when speaking to the press but was visibly irritated by a line of questioning from one journalist.

Earlier in the presser Silva had insisted he had no plans to change the way he approaches matches despite the team’s dismal results over the past three months.

The journalist in question suggested that meant Silva was happy with the way things had been going – something the Toffees boss was quick to slap down.

“Did you listen? I’m not saying I’m happy.

“You ask me if I will be changing something radical and I say to you no.

“But, as I said before, I’m not happy with the last result. I don’t understand why you are using the word happy, because I don’t use the word happy.

“I said before I was not happy with the result and you are saying the opposite.

“But to change something radical? No, I answer to you again, no”

Everton’s recent poor run has seen them drop to 11th, seven points behind Watford in seventh.

When asked whether that had forced the club to re-assess their targets between now and the end of the season, Silva added:

“We don’t have to change nothing, I’m not happy with last results or position but everything is open for us and we don’t have to change what was our goal at the start of the season.

”We have to look at each match as a final for us, playing with confidence is main thing for us now.”
