Jordan Pickford on the defensive improvements under Sean Dyche:
“It’s always good to get a win. It was a pretty quiet day for me today, but I’m pleased with the clean sheet. I think everyone’s working hard to get a game after the refresh of the new manager. He’s big on keeping clean sheets and being hard to break down. The wingers have to defend and help the full-backs, and the defenders have to be strong, too. When Goodison’s rocking, it’s a special place to be.” [EFC]
