Davies Reveals How He's Working Hard To Improve

Tom Davies says he is "working hard every day" to improve as he revealed what he would like to add to his game to cement his place in Everton's first team.

The 19-year-old has made scoring and creating more goals a specific target to continue his impressive development, which has seen the midfielder rise through the Club's Academy system.

Having forged his way into the first team last season, Davies has made 32 appearances for the Blues in 2017/18. That included an impressive second-half showing in Saturday's defeat at Arsenal, with the teenager adding energy and urgency to the midfield after a forgettable opening 45 minutes for the visitors.

The England Under-21 international's performance at the Emirates drew praise from boss Sam Allardyce, who said Davies "got us in the game, got us going forward and got the rest of the lads playing".

The West Derby youngster has made 12 starts this season but has backed himself to carry on improving, targeting a regular run of starts under a manager who has placed faith in him.

“It’s great to have his support,” Davies told evertonfc.com. “It has been a tough season for me so far but I have been getting back into the team and getting some games under my belt.

“The aim for me now is to try to cement myself in the team. We have got a lot of games still go and I am just looking to try and keep my place.

“My attributes seem to fit into what the manager wants from his midfield. With the way he wants us to play, with us pressing, it fits my game.

“I do think I bring more to the table but I am looking to improve every day in training. 

“I would like to add more goals to my game, as well as creating more chances. That’s what I’m working hard to do.”

Everton are back in action on Saturday when they face Allardyce’s former club Crystal Palace at Goodison Park, kick-off 3pm.
