Silva willing to take positives from Man City defeat
Everton went down 2-0 to Manchester City at Goodison Park on Wednesday night but the Toffees put up a much-improved performance from the one that ended in a 3-1 defeat against Wolves.
Goals from Aymeric Laporte and Gabriel Jesus sent Man City back to the top of the standings but the Goodison Park crowd, who had booed the players following the defeat against Wolves, remained onside this time around.
And manager Marco Silva assured the fans that the players will give them what they deserve in due course of time.
“We are all together and we will give them what they want and what they deserve,” Silva said.
“The fans are so good.”
Silva said: “Everything was different compared to Wolves, I have to be honest. This has to be our image as a team.
“We must be consistent, it is an obligation for us. We must have a desire to win, an aggression, it is what we have to do every time against every team. You have to respect every team.
“We are talking about set-pieces every time, it is more mental than something more.
“Ninety-nine per cent of teams in the Premier League defend in the same way as us but when you are so negative about something sometimes bad things come to you.”
