We have a good spirit in the group. Everyone, playing or not, all noses are pointing in the same direction. We want the best for this team and this club. We have great belief in ourselves. After the performance at Brighton and even against Manchester City. I know we lost the game, but there were positives to take. It’s in our own hands so it’s about going out and performing this week,” says veteran defender James Tarkowski. [EFC]

Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher have their say on the final stretch of this season’s relegation battle.

He [McNeil] had to play deeper at times because Mason [Holgate] is not a natural full-back than his ability to still be effective in a change of shape. He’s been terrific since I’ve been back with him and I want him to keep enjoying his football but also taking it on. I thought at Brighton he took it on. He is a player who is still maturing in my view and he is grasping and grabbing it and taking things forward and making things happen and that is very pleasing for him and pleasing for us,” says Dyche on Dwight McNeil.

Poor Andy!

We are just looking forward to the games. We are making sure we are focused on the things we do and as long as we do our job and do our best I am sure will be fine. All season we’ve concentrated on ourselves, trying to not look at the table and anyone around us. We just have to make sure we are focused and everyone is on the right page,” says Nathan Patterson.

In some non-Everton news, Folarin Balogun has (finally) completed the switch over to the USMNT.
