Silva insists he has no concerns despite Everton’s early form

Marco Silva insists he has no concerns despite Everton’s indifferent start to the new season.

The Toffees host champions Manchester City this weekend looking to bounce back following back-to-back defeats to Bournemouth and Sheffield United, with the club currently languishing in 14th after winning just twice in their opening six league fixtures.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s brace secured a morale boosting win over Sheffield Wednesday in the Carabao Cup in midweek, and ahead of this weekend’s clash Everton boss Silva is confident his side can regain their best form after enduring a disappointing start to the campaign.

“Of course we are not happy. I am the first one when I look at the table. It’s too early to look at the table and panic,” Silva said at his pre-match press conference.

“If we played well and got three points in the last game, you are talking completely different about the position in the table.

“Everything is too close. If you ask me if I am really concerned or panic, of course not. We know what we are doing, we know what we should improve and, in types of situations, results will come.

“No one is happy when you are conceding the goals like we are conceding.

“We’ve changed one or two things from last season, but they are almost the same players that played thirteen games with ten clean sheets.

“They were the same last season with the fourth best defence in the Premier League.”
