Coleman urges Everton to ‘keep battling’ to turn poor form around

The Toffees full-back says the club need to get back to winning ways and fight for seventh place in the league. 

Seamus Coleman believes that hard work is the key to Everton getting back on track in the Premier League, where they have been inconsistent at times this season.

“There is no magic potion – we just need to work hard and keep battling,” Coleman told Everton’s official website.

“Hopefully with wins the confidence will come but at the minute we are not winning enough, we are not getting back-to-back wins, which always breeds confidence.

The Irishman said the team can longer use the excuse of trying to gel new players into the squad:

“The past six or seven weeks… we’ve won a game, performed well and looked forward to the next game, but it hasn’t gone quite so well. You don’t want to keep saying we had new players coming in and are trying to organise that… as a whole we need to be better, we need to stand up and be counted.

“Seventh is up for grabs and there will be a lot of teams fighting for that position. We can only look at ourselves and that starts with going on the training ground on Monday and preparing the best we can and having a great attitude like all professional footballers should.

“The only way you can do it is on the pitch and be proud to play for your club. At the minute, we all need to do better.”

Everton currently sit in 11th in the table, having lost three of their last five games.
