Marco Silva held his pre-match press conference on Friday afternoon ahead of Everton's Premier League clash at home to Brighton & Hove Albion this weekend.
The Blues manager gave his thoughts on Saturday's game against the in-form Seagulls, with his side bidding to make it three straight league wins at Goodison Park. Key topics included:
- The competition in his squad, with the boss revealing Yerry Mina is ready to start if selected and that Ademola Lookman is pushing the other wingers he has to choose from.
- The 'important' qualities that Richarlison offers up front.
- Phil Jagielka and Jonjoe Kenny are unavailable for Saturday with minor knocks but will return to training next week.
- How Everton are eager to make up for the disappointment of coming away from Manchester United empty-handed which highlights their ambition.
- The importance of his team starting on the front foot against Brighton, and why Silva knows Evertonians will get behind his side once again.
