Jack Harrison has identified the Everton squad’s mentality and talent as key factors to an impressive response during their last outing:
“It’s been a season where we’ve been a bit unfortunate at times and maybe not got the results we deserved. Sometimes when you don’t get the results, it’s quite easy to get down and negative in the team. We know we’ve been doing the rights things, but it just hasn’t come off here and there.
We capitalised on those opportunities as a team against Bournemouth. I think the defence worked really hard to keep a clean sheet. On the attacking side – we managed to bring it all together. It was a team performance that we’ve been looking for, for a while now.”
Former Everton defender Michael Ball believes that Jarrad Branthwaite could generate huge transfer demand.
