Phil Jagielka insists Everton will leave no stone unturned as they bid to bounce back immediately from the frustrating defeat at Bournemouth.
The Blues’ unbeaten start to the Premier League season ended with Junior Stanislas’ first half strike at the Vitality Stadium.
But Jagielka is adamant the players are fully focused on righting the wrongs of that loss against the Cherries when they host Crystal Palace next Friday.
“We will look at the video and iron out a few things that we did wrong and then move on to Palace,” said the Blues skipper. “That’s a massive game at home before the international break so it is important we get back to winning ways.
“Far too many of us were below par against Bournemouth. We need to look at ourselves in the mirror if we are to challenge up at the top of the league. We need to make sure we go to places like Bournemouth and put a better display on.”
Like his manager, Ronald Koeman, Jagielka says the first half performance on the south coast failed to hit the standards set out by the Blues’ previous league games.
“In the first half we didn’t compete well enough,” he added. “We were second to too many balls and didn’t keep possession when we had the opportunities to do so.
“They put us under pressure and a goal from them always seemed to be coming. Unfortunately it did. Afterwards we just couldn’t get back into it. We had a few opportunities but couldn’t convert them. We are disappointed in the way we performed.”
