Silva Takes Everton Positives

Silva Takes Everton Positives

Head coach Marco Silva remained a glass half full kind of chap after Watford's meltdown against Everton at the weekend.

Heading to Goodison Park for the tie, Watford deservedly took a two nil lead on the day with goals coming from Richarlison and Christian Kabasele but it all went wrong after that with Everton levelling matters up before Leighton Baines struck from the penalty spot in stoppage time to take all three points.

Speaking to the Official Site as he met with the media following the game, Silva was obviously disappointed at our collapse but he was insistent plenty of positives could still be taken and at base point it served as a great harsh lesson to players that you can't relax at this level and if we learn that, we'll be much better for it moving forward.

'We need to be clever and the be smart to understand what happened today. It`s important we learn really fast why these types of things happen.'

Having dominated for large periods and with Will Hughes taking praise for his performance in his first start in the league, with a return of 15 points from our opening eleven matches and sitting in 9th place, Silva was content despite the recent dip because he felt performances were still strong.

'We are still in a good way, we worked hard and the commitment from our players was there. We did everything well until 2-0, we performed well and our players worked really hard again. Everybody felt today we are in the right way, these types of things can happen, it was unlucky for our team.'

With the November international break with us and not too many players heading off, Silva knew it was the ideal time to rest and recharge and work on improvements.

'It is a moment for our players to rest and for some of them to get fit again. We need to keep going, to keep working hard and to keep working.'

With injury to Heurelho Gomes who needed to be substituted with a cut to the face following a clash with Kabasele, Silva had good news on that score.

'He looks better now, it was a bad cut to his head, in the next few days he will be okay.'
