Silva admits Everton ‘didn’t play well’ in Huddersfield draw

Everton manager Marco Silva was unhappy with his side’s performance during their 1-1 draw with Huddersfield at Goodison Park earlier today.

Huddersfield took the lead on 34 minutes when midfielder Philip Billing headed home from a corner, but young attacker Dominic Calvert-Lewin struck back with a header of his own just two minutes later and the score would stay the same for the rest of the game.

Silva remains unbeaten as Everton manager, although his side have now drawn three of their four Premier League games so far this season.

Speaking after the game the Portuguese coach was clearly less than impressed with his teams showing.

“We didn’t perform well. It wasn’t a good game,” He told the BBC.

“They had nine players behind the ball. When we play against that size of team, we have to play faster in certain moments of the game to disorganise them. We didn’t create enough chances to score.

“As well as Richarlison, Theo [Walcott] with a problem in his hips is another problem for us.

“It was important to score fast and react well after their goal. The second half was difficult as they just waited for our mistakes.”
