Everton striker Cenk Tosun says that he felt good playing in the conditions at Stoke, despite the freezing temperatures and snow that boss Sam Allardyce has previously said have troubled the Turkish international.
Tosun made it four goals in three starts as Everton beat 10-man Stoke in another dull game under Allardyce, taking the Blues to the magic 40 point mark of safety.
He said, “I think I’ve settled in very well, I feel better today and it was great to win here after five or six defeats away. I want to thank all the lads, it was a great game for us.
“For both goals I had seconds to react and this is just how strikers must work in the box.
“We want to win as much as possible and we still have the chance to play in Europe next season. We have seven games and we want to win a lot of these.
“It was very cold. With the snow, it was really difficult to play and we couldn’t see the ball sometimes, but in the second half it got better.”
