Tom Davies insists Everton must build on the improved display at Chelsea if they are to start picking up results.
The Blues produced a strong second half performance but couldn’t overturn Antonio Rudiger’s first half header despite going close through Wayne Rooney and Ademola Lookman.
Willian then ensured it was the Londoners that reached the fifth round of the Carabao Cup, even though Everton struck a late consolation through Dominic Calvert-Lewin.
Despite David Unsworth having just a short time to work with his players on the training ground, the Toffees produced a resolute display that Davies says they must now build upon.
“Dave makes us aware of what is expected of us,” he said. “He has a lot of experience of the Club and knows what it means to play for Everton. He has been getting that across to us and you could see in today’s performance that we all played for the team.
“Hopefully that carries on and we can keep building on this display. I thought we were the better side at times. We were on top for large periods of the second half, created a few decent chances and had we put one away it becomes a different game.
“Conceding late made it tough but we were better tonight. We will take a lot from that second half. Chelsea are one of the best teams in the league so we can build on the performance we put in. If we can do that then I am sure the result will come.
“Now we are focusing on Leicester and putting in a similar display. Hopefully we can pick up the result to match. If we can play like that again I’m sure we can do that.”
