Everton boss Marco Silva says that his side deserved the three points against Southampton yesterday as the Blues ran out 2-1 winners in his first competitive game at Goodison Park.
Mark Hughes brought a side determined to disrupt and intimidate, but for 45 minutes Silva’s side dominated the game and that was enough to see off a sorry Saints side.
“It was a good first half,” said Silva.
“We started really well but after they scored the game looked different for us.
“We kept going in the same way, but the second half it was a bit different, we had to manage it in a different way, and we are working hard on defending better on set pieces.
“But really we deserved these three points.”
