Everton right back and yesterday’s captain Seamus Coleman says that Everton have to keep spirits high after the defeat to Manchester United at Old Trafford yesterday.
The Blues were beaten 2-1 in a game that many Evertonians felt they could win, and Seamus Coleman himself came in for some strong criticism from the Blues’ faithful after the match.
Some fans were unhappy with his back-tracking when faced up with United forward Anthony Martial, while others pointed out that the winger in front of him was nowhere to be seen. Indeed, it was Theo Walcott who came in for the strongest criticism from pundits at the match.
But Coleman says his side have to bounce back and get back to winning ways.
He was quoted in The Star as saying, “We had three wins on the bounce before this, which is massive in the Premier League.
“Going there was always going to be tough, but we believed we could get something.
“Unfortunately, we didn’t but we’ve got to crack on, keep the spirits high and look forward to going back to Goodison.”
Everton face Brighton and Hove Albion at Goodison Park on Saturday at 3pm and will be looking to get back to winning ways and close the gap between themselves and sixth place.
