Look at the bigger picture urges Distin

Sylvain Distin has urged those around Everton Football Club to look at the bigger picture following the shock defeat to Sunderland.

Everton were dealt a double whammy against Sunderland when an unforced error enabled Sunderland to break, score the only goal of the game and see Everton drop to ten men all in the space of a few seconds.

Under Roberto Martinez, Everton have adopted a flowing style of play, building out from the back has been the clear philosophy and it had served Everton well, going into the game in the top four.

But a regulation pass out from the back from Tim Howard was miscontrolled by Leon Osman on Boxing Day, giving Ki Sung-Yeung a late Christmas present. He then surged forward and was taken down by Tim Howard.

The Everton shotstopper was shown a straight red card, whilst Ki Sung-Yeung stepped up to score the deciding penalty.

It was a shock defeat but not enough for Distin to believe Everton's style of play should be abandoned.

"So many times we get the ball out properly, that if once in a while you come unstuck you have to accept it. It`s part of the way we play. Distin told the Echo.

He continued: "It took a long time for the mistake to come. Of course we`d rather it didn`t happen at all but if you look where we are in the table it`s a sign for people who might now say maybe we should start to play long.

"If you look at the stats they say a lot. We went unbeaten at Goodison for a year, we`ve got the best defence in the league and we`re usually very consistent.

"People need to look at all that, not just one goal. It`s very easy when the mistakes happen to turn around and say 'you should have done this or that`, but we`re here to build something for the long term and I think we`re doing amazing."
