Everton must be more ruthless and get scoring, insists Tom Davies

Everton have to be more ruthless in front of goal if they are to turn around their season, according to Tom Davies.

The Toffees have now lost 10 of their last 16 matches following a 1-0 defeat at Watford and the pressure is increasing on manager Marco Silva.

However, the Merseysiders did have their chances and struck the woodwork twice but failed to find the net.

Davies, now back in the team and a rare bright spot during the poor run, insists the team, currently languishing in ninth, have to start scoring if they are to climb back up the table.

“We had enough chances to get a different result and we could have done better, we know that,” he told Everton’s official website.

“We are disappointed. We’re not happy with the result.

“And if we can’t win it, we just have to try to keep a clean sheet and get a 0-0.

“We have to look at the last few games [and see how we can improve].”

Everton now have an extended break before they can avenge their dismal results and are not in action until February 26 when they travel to Cardiff.
