Everton’s Tosun happy at finally getting among the goals despite ‘difficult’ start

Everton striker Cenk Tosun has said that he feels like he is finally ‘getting better’ and scoring goals after a difficult first 10 months at Goodison Park.

Having arrived at Everton for £27 million back in January, there was much hope and expectation that the Turkish international could fill the £75 million Romelu Lukaku shaped void at the front of the Blues’ attack.

He only managed to find the net five times in his first half-season at the club, and he also got off to a slow start to the current Premier League campaign. However, the 27-year-old has found the net in each of Everton’s last two home games, and has now said he feels that he is starting to settle in.

“It is getting better now, it was difficult to get in goalscoring positions in the first few games and I was the guy who made more assists for the players, left and right,” Tosun told evertontv.

“But in the past few games I had a lot of shots and got in a lot of scoring positions and those things made me happy.

“I am lucky at Goodison, scoring two goals in the past two games! The fans are great and at home they can make the difference. Away teams who come here feel the pressure. The supporters are like a 12th man for us and I am happy to play in front of them.

“More important was the three points… step-by-step we are going higher now.

“I want to congratulate all the players for the three points on Sunday, we played a good second half and go with big confidence to Old Trafford next week.”
