Everton have continued their recent good form to register an impressive win over high-flying Newcastle United. The home side had to wait a while for the breakthrough, which they got in the end. They scored three late goals to secure a 3-0 win over Newcastle in the Premier League. These three points will be massive for the hosts as they fight to stay clear of the relegation battle. And to achieve that against a competitive side like Newcastle would have been extra sweet for the home team.
There were plenty of positives to take for Everton from the impressive Premier League win over Newcastle United. One of the biggest is to produce a performance like this in front of their home support. Besides, they have also maintained their recent good form of being a threat going forward by having many shots at goal. Everton manager Sean Dyche has always been urging his team to take the chances that are being presented to them, which they did against Newcastle.
“We delivered a good performance against Manchester United, maybe even better than the one against Newcastle, but today we got the opposite [result]. It was a strong first half against a good outfit. I’ve been asked what we have to change to improve the home form, and I’ve said to take our chances, and today we did. Week in and week out, you have to be performing. I try and concentrate on the performance levels, and the markers I am looking for, plus all the other things I often speak about. If you get them right over a season, it will pay you back,” he told evertontv.
What Dyche liked the most was how the team was able to handle last-minute changes to the line-up in a positive manner. James Garner was out of the clash with an illness and there was also a return for Seamus Coleman. “I mention mentality so often because I believe it is the underbelly of a real team, an authentic team. It’s growing here, you can sense it, and the players are adapting to each other. The commitment to the cause is growing,” he said.
He added: “We know we have quality by the way, but you have to do the hard yards. You have to do the ugly side of the game. For tonight, we have had to change things. Jimmy Garner was ill unfortunately with a sickness bug, we dropped Douc in who I thought was terrific. Youngy goes up one and I thought he was excellent. Seamus, we know he picked up a minor injury but Patto gets thrown in and produces a performance. The connection in the group is getting better. Everyone is pitching in and I think the fans can sense that.”
