Everton were the latest victims in Southampton’s uplifting run of form this season as they lost 2-1 against a Ralph Hassenhuttl led Saints team on Saturday evening.
The loss counted as the Toffees’ 6 loss in the last 10 Premier League fixtures which saw the side drop down to the 11th spot. Seamus Coleman did not take too well to the losses but firmly believes simply hard work will see them through to better times.
The Everton right-back was said after the defeat, “There is no magic potion – we just need to work hard and keep battling. Hopefully, with wins, the confidence will come but at the minute we are not winning enough, we are not getting back-to-back wins, which always breeds confidence.”
“The past six or seven weeks we’ve won a game performed well and looked forward to the next game, but it hasn’t gone quite so well. You don’t want to keep saying we had new players coming in and are trying to organise that. As a whole we need to be better, we need to stand up and be counted.”
“Seventh is up for grabs and there will be a lot of teams fighting for that position. We can only look at ourselves and that starts with going on the training ground on Monday and preparing the best we can and having a great attitude like all professional footballers should.”
“The only way you can do it is on the pitch and be proud to play for your club. At the minute, we all need to do better.”
