Everton are primed to be even better this season because the players have had a year to learn Roberto Martinez’s methods.

That’s the view of Steven Naismith, a man who flourished under the Blues boss last term.

Twelve months ago, the Everton squad were using pre-season to quickly and effectively adjust to Martinez’s distinct football ideologies.

Naismith explained to evertontv: “Last season we had a short amount of time to change the way we thought, the way we moved.

“We are a year on now and the majority of the squad have had that for a year now, so we can progress again with new ways of playing and back-up plans.”

This week, Everton have been putting in the hard yards at their Austrian training camp; another vital area of preparation for the new campaign - one which will include European football.

Naismith continued: “The balance has been right between hard training sessions, going on the bikes and being in the gym. It’s been a tough week but the mixture is there.

“When we got to the point where we guaranteed European football it was a relief but mainly it was exciting.

“The manager had told us this was a squad which should be playing in Europe and to be doing that is great for everybody.”
