Dyche demands Everton overcome Goodison woes


Sean Dyche is hoping Everton can get the results he feels their performances deserve and improve their woeful record at Goodison Park.

The Toffees have won just six of their last 23 Premier League games at home – and lost all four this season – a record that is undermining their hopes of avoiding relegation.

Bournemouth arrive on Merseyside this weekend and Dyche is hoping for an improved display from his struggling side.

He said: “We are trying to change a two-year-old story. I’ll never shy away from outcomes.

“We have to take control of games we are dominating by scoring goals and keeping clean sheets. We have turn performances into wins.”

Luton were the latest team to win at Goodison although Dyche felt it was harsh on his players, adding: “It was a frustrating one. I said afterwards we played well and were dominant in so many metrics but we didn’t win and I’m aware it is about winning games.

“We are looking to do that. We’ve delivered performances but not won enough games. That has got to change.”

Asked if the Bournemouth game was ‘must-win’, he said: “Every game is a must win, that is the way I like to think about football.

“Virtually it has been talked about every game since I’ve been here.”

One ray of sunshine amid the gloom for Everton has been the form of Dominic Calvert-Lewin. The England striker has scored in each of his last three games having returned from his latest injury problem.

“He’s getting close to total fitness,” said Dyche. “Scoring goals is a good habit. He is getting to the end point of being totally fit; clear of mind and clear of body.”
