Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford has criticised the set-piece defending of the Everton players. Everton have conceded four of their seven goals this season from corners. They drew 1-1 against Huddersfield yesterday and Huddersfield’s goal also came from a corner-kick.
Pickford said, “Everyone has got their own different ways that they like to set up from a corner. The main thing is not to concede and we have conceded too many. It has cost us four points in the last three games. We need to sort it out. We will work hard on the training ground when we get back from international duty.
[Silva] is massive on offensive set plays too and we have scored a couple of goals that way. If we can keep scoring and stop conceding that’s how you win games.”
The Toffees are currently 7th in the Premier League table and next play West Ham on September 16.
