Everton defender Lucas Digne was delighted to get off the mark for his new club but admits he would rather have beaten Watford.
The left-back produced a moment of magic deep into stoppage time against the Hornets on Monday night as his free-kick secured a 2-2 draw, much to the delight of the majority of fans in attendance at Goodison Park.
It was more dropped points at home for the Toffees after last week’s 1-1 draw with Newcastle and they have now taken just two points from the last three matches, with games against top-four sides Manchester City and Tottenham up next.
Digne says it was a nice moment to get his first goal in Everton colours but says the three points would have meant a lot more.
“I feel like I can score and I said to Richi (Richarlison) to leave the free-kick to me,” said the former Barcelona defender, who joined in the summer for 18million.
“We saved the defeat and I’m happy with my goal but we would have preferred the win. We need to stay focused and continue the work.”
Ahead of the upcoming games against City and Spurs, the Frenchman added: “We are happy to be playing against two of the best teams next and we need to work this week to prepare in the best manner.”Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
