Marco Silva says that his side need to be more clinical in front of goal as they beat Arsenal one-nil at Goodison Park this afternoon.
Silva watched his side run rampant against the Gunners who, as is their way, turned up to try and intimidate Everton but melted away once the Blues found their feet.
Late replacement Phil Jagielka put the Blues ahead within ten minutes after stepping in for the poorly Michael Keane shortly before kick off.
Everton dominated after the early goal and could have scored more to put the game to bed earlier, but Jagielka’s goal was to prove decisive.
Silva had a disagreement with visiting boss Unai Emery when Mustafi hacked down Dominic Calvert-Lewin late on in the second half but was only given a yellow card. But he said there were no hard feelings at the end of the game.
“The win is more than fair,” he told Sky Sports after the game.
“With the chances we created we should have been more clinical.
“Our fans were fantastic again in the stadium.
“Football is emotional and I want the best for my team.
“I said to him [Emery] good luck for the rest of the matches.”
