Marco Silva managed to earn himself more time as Everton boss as the Blues ran out 2-0 winners over West Ham at Goodison Park this afternoon.
Silva saw his side play with much more urgency and with much more positivity as Tom Davies and Djibril Sidibe came into the side, and a rejuvinated Theo Walcott pulled all the strings feeding Richarlsion up top.
Adnre Gomes returned to his early Everton career form, bossing the midfield with ease and making the job for Yerry Mina and Michael Keane much easier at the back.
The pressure will now be off temporarily, but Silva knows that his side will need to keep up the tempo next week when they go away to Brighton.
He said, “I know what I’m doing. I have full confidence in the staff and full confidence in my players as well. Of course it’s better when you win games, but I was always calm.
“I wasn’t nervous. This afternoon we created so many chances. The game was always under control.
“We are doing what we love. Express yourselves on the pitch is what I say – and we did.
“When you are not in a very good moment, the pressure is there to win more games. We were not good enough in last results.”
