Jordan Pickford Insists Liverpool Error Hasn’t Affected Him

Everton keeper Jordan Pickford says his last minute error at Anfield hasn’t affected him so far.

The closely fought Merseyside derby was edging towards a draw but things drastically changed in the final minutes of the added time. A mistimed shot from Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk spun into the air and hit the crossbar as Pickford failed to judge the flight of the ball. The ball bounced and came straight to Divock Origi who just tapped in to extend Everton’s miserable run at the Anfield.

The English international promised to bounce back and his display against Huddersfield Town underlined his commitment for his club. The former Sunderland custodian made a couple of excellent saves to keep the Toffees in the game.

Pickford said, “No not really. It doesn’t affect me stuff like that.

“I know if I’ve done good or bad in games and I’m mentally strong. It’s probably the strongest thing in my armoury.

“It doesn’t affect me. I just put on performances and try my best every game.”

He went on to add, “The Premier League is a tough league, everyone knows that and it’s all about getting back-to-back wins and going on a run.

“We’ve been too inconsistent this season. We need to get that consistency level up and start by carrying on this Saturday.”
