Sylvain Distin

Monday night's game against Newcastle United can't come quickly enough, according to Frenchman Sylvain Distin.
 
The recent international break means the Blues will welcome Alan Pardew's Magpies to Goodison Park some 16 days after their last outing - a disappointing 2-0 reverse at West Brom.
 
That came on the back of victories against Manchester United, Aston Villa and Leyton Orient, and Distin admits it has been a frustrating wait to get the Club's impressive start to the campaign back on track.
 
"Straight after that game at West Brom, I really felt like I wanted to play again - I wanted the Newcastle game to be the next day" Distin told evertontv.
 
"It really felt like it was a bad day at the office but, at the same time, maybe the break will have done everyone some good.”

Indeed, after raising expectations, Distin believes there was a valuable lesson to be drawn from defeat at the Hawthorns.
 
He added: "Maybe it's going to calm everybody down - the players, the fans, everybody - and make everyone a bit more realistic.
 
"We know we're not going to win every single game but after those first two games against United and Villa, that's what the feeling was.
 
"At half-time at West Brom it was 0-0 and we wanted to win the game. Maybe we wanted to win too much, we were too impatient and in the end we paid for that mistake."
