Seamus Colemen feels Everton need to start behaving like a top team as they still lack the quality to compete with the other bigwigs in the Premier League.
Everton’s record against the top six clubs is pretty awful as they have barely stood a chance before them. Their rivalry with Liverpool has been a one sided affair for the last few years as the Reds have been the dominant side in the Merseyside.
Everton showed some early resilience last season as they humiliated Manchester City 4-0 in the Premier League. But they couldn’t hold on to that and City romped their way to the title.
With the Toffees scheduled to visit Chelsea on Sunday Coleman feels they need to start all guns blazing if they want to prove their title credentials. “The next step for us is to go to Chelsea and come back with three points.
“We know it will be extremely tough against a top team but I think now we need to be going to these places and getting three points.
“The mentality needs to change. It’s going to be tough going to Chelsea, let’s be right, but if we can go there and get something that would really set us up for the season.
“I think we are a lot more positive than maybe we have been and players like Richarlison are the reason why you think you can go there and get something, the form they [the new players] are in.
“Andre has come in and been very good as well, and our left-back [Digne] played for Barcelona. Little Bernard has been brilliant so we’ve got very good players.”
