Sigurdsson On How Everton's Attackers Have 'Clicked'

Gylfi Sigurdsson believes Everton's attackers have 'clicked' in recent weeks - as the playmaker spoke of his faith in the Blues continuing their quality and confidence in front of goal.

Everton have hit seven goals in their past two matches, following up a 4-2 Carabao Cup win at Lincoln City with a 3-2 Premier League success against Wolverhampton Wanderers. Next up for Marco Silva's side is a clash at Bournemouth on Sunday (2pm).

Iceland international Sigurdsson opened his account for the season in the victory over Lincoln, rifling in from the penalty spot at Sincil Bank.

He then turned in a classy performance in that thrilling contest against Wolves, notably providing a fabulous first-time cross for Alex Iwobi to head in the Toffees' second goal of the game.

Sigurdsson says belief is strong within the squad that Everton can sustain their momentum after those effervescent displays.

“Over the past two games, it has clicked,” the 30-year-old told evertontv.

“We are scoring goals now, which is fantastic.

“We have had to stay patient. We know as long as we’re creating chances, we are not far away from scoring.


“In the first few games, it [not being clinical] cost us. But we know we were going to score goals with the players we have.

“We are scoring the goals now and we need to keep doing what we’ve been doing.”

Sigurdsson, who joined the Blues from Swansea City for a Club record fee in 2017, was Everton’s joint-top goalscorer in 2018/19.

He netted 13 times in the Premier League - the same tally achieved by explosive Brazilian forward Richarlison.

Sigurdsson feels Everton’s attacking threat has been significantly boosted by the signing of dynamic forward Iwobi from Arsenal.


The 23-year-old Nigeria international has scored in his first two starts for the Blues.

“He has scored two great headers,” Sigurdsson added.

“He is getting himself into those [goalscoring] positions.

“To score two headers in two games is fantastic for him. Hopefully that will continue.”
