Roberto Martinez

Defeat hard to take for Martinez

martinezdrawEverton boss Roberto Martinez has said that his side need to work on being more consistent after a poor first half display meant that a much better second half couldn’t stop his side losing.

Martinez watched his side play slowly and ineffectively in the first half, going in at half time 2-1 down, and despite a much better showing in the second half, the scoreline remained the same.

The Spaniard said that the game today showed both sides of Everton’s game this season – very good going forward in the second half, but defensively poor in the first.

“I think it’s a game that brings a scoreline that is very hard to take,” said Martinez.

“We didn’t start well enough and it’s something of our own doing that we weren’t sharp enough and we were a little bit pedestrian.

“In the second half the amount of action that we had and the control, as well as the chances that we created, the scoreline could have been very different.

“But today nothing went our way.

“I think on days like today you see how good we can be, but also how soft we allow scorelines to go away from us.

“We need to learn from these painful lessons and become a lot better, but I think the contrast between the first and second halves is where the work is.”
