Leon Osman says Everton need to rediscover their ruthlessness if they're to gain the points their performances deserve.

The Blues have bossed large spells of all three of their Premier League games this season but are yet to convert that dominance into a win.

And speaking after a third successive league draw away at Cardiff City on Saturday, the 32-year-old said: "That has been the story so far of our season. We've played reasonably well in games, created quite a few chances and not quite been able to turn that into a victory.

"We take positives. We've had two clean sheets in the last two games and we're the team on the front foot.

"But, ultimately, it's about winning games in this league and we haven't quite made that next step."

Osman's comments echoed those of manager Roberto Martinez, who himself called for his side to grow more clinical in front of goal.

And the midfielder also agreed with his boss that Everton were unfortunate to be denied a first-half penalty when Leighton Baines went down under a challenge from Chile international Gary Medel.

"It was puzzling," he said. "I think most of the home fans probably held their breath and we were certainly calling for a penalty.

"But the referee decided not to give it, so what can you do?"
