Davies - We'll Keep Looking Up
Midfielder Tom Davies has said that Everton simply need to keep looking up the table following victory over Hull City on Saturday.
Climbing back into sixth place in the Premier League table following our back to back home wins - albeit temporarily ahead of Manchester United's victory on Sunday - Davies knew that Everton simply had to keep looking upwards as the season comes to an end.
Despite the temporary stay in sixth place, we are now level with Arsenal on 50 points and with us playing five of the top six between now and the final game of the campaign, he told evertonfc.com that it was a good place to be as in reality European qualification is almost in our hands - as long as we get the results in those matches that we want.
'We are keeping an eye on who is above us as well as watching who is below us. The more results we get, the higher we can go. Today is another good one as Arsenal have slipped up, so it was a good day for us. It`s been a great few results which we`ve had. Hopefully we can keep that going. It was important to get the win before the international break so we can go into our next games on a high. We are going really well and the international break has come at a bad time for us. I`m sure we`ll get back together after it and we`ll try to carry on.'
Reflecting on the fact that Dominic Calvert-Lewin scored his first senior goal against Hull City at the weekend, Davies knew exactly how that would've felt for the 20 year given he scored his own first goal back in the four nil victory over Manchester City in January.
Having set up Calvert-Lewin for his strike, Davies added.
'I`m made up for him to get his first goal. His debut against Southampton didn`t go as he planned but I`m glad today he`s managed to get a goal. To get the goal summed up his performance. He worked hard and I`m just glad I managed to set him up.'
