Mikel Arteta has hailed the togetherness of the Everton dressing room, branding the club as ‘special’.
“You can always see a reaction from Everton teams when they have had a bad result or five injuries a week. That means the spirit in the dressing room and the club is right. I haven’t seen any club like Everton, it is special. Everyone involved at the club is really close to each other and no one thinks they are more important than the club”,
The ‘Best Little Spaniard We Know’ went on to bemoan Evertons lack of “end product” and reckons we could do with a 20-goal plus a season striker.
“I think we had some really good games without any end product – that is the biggest criticism we could have. Not getting the points and not closing the games when we have had the chance makes it a harder season because it means you’ve not won enough games, we have drawn too many.
“But David Moyes doesn’t want anyone complaining about how sorry we feel because we haven’t had the money to spend or we have players injured.
“He says “Take it as it comes’ and we have to go out there and do what we are paid to do. We need goals, goals and more goals. The difference in football is to have someone scoring 20 to 25 goals a season”
