Everton boss Marco Silva admitted that the first half performance against Fulham this afternoon simply wasn’t good enough, but that the second half performance was much better.
The Blues ran out 3-0 winners but at half time very few people would have been betting on that scoreline.
Everton were second best to everything in a first half which seemed to drag on forever before the break brought about a change in attitude on the pitch.
Silva said, “It’s important to be clear what we did in the second half was really different.
“We have to be more aggressive than our opponents but sometimes we have to be more calm. We changed our team a little bit higher and our pressure was better in the second half.
“Of course it’s important to get three points but the clean sheet is really important as well.
“Sigurdsson deserved the goals because he works hard. Today football was fair with him because he works hard.
“We have to think always about winning. The last two results were really disappointing for us and we had to react and that’s what we did. The first half wasn’t the best but the game is 90 minutes.”
