Marco Silva says that he understands the frustration of the Everton fans after their 3-1 defeat to Wolves.
It was another lacklustre performance from the Toffees, who were comfortably beaten at home by goals from Ruben Neves, Raul Jimenez and Leander Dendoncker, with Andre Gomes’ first goal for the Toffees being one of the only highlights of a disappointing afternoon.
Speaking after the game, Toffees boss Marco Silva lamented the mistakes that his side made.
“Disappointing result for us because they achieved the result. We are giving everything to our opponents sometimes from nowhere including the penalty,” Silva told reporters after the game.
“We give easy decisions to them and we were not aggressive at all. Our mistakes were playing against us. We tried at half-time to change something but we still give the ball to the opponent and we lost the game.”
"Am I still on?"
Glorious work from John Acres! You'll never find a better piece of commentary about a cat on the pitch. 🐈

While there was some questions surrounding the awarding of the penalty for the opening goal, Silva refused to lay the blame at the doorstep of referee Anthony Taylor, saying the defeat was solely down to his side, insisting they have the quality within their ranks to do better.
“Even if some decisions, you do not understand this is something we cannot control so without the referee we need to keep playing, even with the penalty, whether it is a penalty or not. It is up to us to solve this issue because when we are giving the ball away like we did, it is tough for us to understand. We have the conditions to do better.”
There were a number of boos from the Goodison Park faithful at the end of the game as pressure continues to mount on Marco Silva, although the Portuguese said that he understood the fans frustrations.
“I understand they expect to see a good afternoon and a good game. They want us to achieve the position in the table and I can imagine they are not happy. We must keep fighting to improve.”
