Pickford Happy With Everton’s Resilience

Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford insists his side must continue to show resilience following their win over Huddersfield Town on Tuesday. The Toffees raced into an early lead, with Richarlison scoring inside the first three minutes.

However, it was not an easy night’s work as the Toffees were reduced to 10-men when Lucas Digne was shown a straight red card.

Marco Silva’s men dug in to hold on, with Pickford making several big saves in the closing stages. The England international insists his team need to learn to win ‘ugly’ and he believes Tuesday’s win could be the start of a good run.

He told the club’s official website: “I think we showed a lot of character [against Huddersfield]. Now we need to step up and keep that level high.

“We’ve got to go into every game and be resilient as a unit. We kept a clean sheet and a lot of hard work went into it. “We were very disappointed at the weekend to go out of the Cup, as a group of players and as a club we wanted to go further than we did. But the important thing was to bounce back and I think we showed character and got the win. “Now it’s about finishing as high up the table as we can. We know it’s going to be tough but it’s all about going on a good run. We want to get back-to-back wins and go on a run. We’ve been a bit too inconsistent this season and we need to get that consistency level up.”
