Roberto Martinez believes his teams performances this season have merited being top of the table.
“The straight answer is yes, especially because the first three games were in the transfer window and the transfer window really affected those results.” He said when asked by EvertonTV
“I thought the performances in the three draws were as dominant and as good as you’re going to get, and probably we dropped six points when we should have got the full nine points from those three games.
“We all admired the display we had in the first 45 minutes against Newcastle and probably that’s the picture that we want of our 90 minute performances, and that’s what we need to work towards.
“But, overall, we’ve had to play difficult games, different opposition and we’ve adapted really, really well.”
Everton fans are generally pleased with the start to the season that they have made and the performances of the blues, but there is a still a long way to go this season.
Evertons next match is at home to Hull City Tigers, where they will be expecting to get a much needed win to push them up the table and keep them in contention.
Steven Pienaar is close to being fit and new signing Antolin Alcaraz would also be in line for a squad birth following his injury plagued start to his blues career. Pienaar has been out for 5 games and would be a welcome addition back into the squad and Gareth Barry is also set to return after being ineligible to play against his parent club Manchester City, last time out!
