The Blues’ penalty taker was part of the 3-0 win over Southampton at Goodison Park yesterday and says that wins over the festive period will help build confidence going into the second half of the season.
“It is tough going for everyone over this period but to come away with a 3-0 victory is good for us,” said the left-back.
“It gives us confidence, that comes with wining games. The important thing is now to go and build on it.
“We have an important game in the FA Cup (at home to Leicester) and if we can get a win in that the place will be lifted.
“We had good cup runs last year (getting to the semi-finals of both the FA and League Cups) so we’ll look to do that little bit better this year.”
