Sean Dyche has praised the mentality of his Everton players after they secured three wins from their past four outings - but reminded them there’s plenty of work still to be done.
“I think most Evertonians believe we have played really well, but you’ve got to win games. I’ve said to the players, ‘You have got to win games, you have to find that winning edge’. It was obviously on show against Bournemouth on Saturday with some of the finishing. We created so many good chances, stayed calm and realized it will come our way. It did on Saturday with a good mixed bag of goals.
I think we’ve been showing what the team’s about but goals win games and wins change the whole feel. It just reinforces the good performances. I’m really pleased for the players. There’s lots of work to be done - lots of work - but it’s another shift forward.” [EFC]
