Luke Garbutt insists Everton ‘must win’ at Stoke City on Wednesday.
Everton 2-0 defeat to Arsenal over the weekend is the latest disappointment in a torrid run of form and have taken 11 points from their last 15 matches.
Garbutt: “There wasn’t really much in the game but their two goals were sloppy on our part and that’s what made the difference
“I wouldn’t say they were exceptional goals.
“We are due a change of luck. Our performance was solid enough for us to get a result but the boys need to stick together now because we’ve got a big game on Wednesday.
“We absolutely need to get something out of that game. It is a must-win. At the very least we must get a point.
“The lads are really disappointed but we go again on Wednesday.”
“I don’t think we’re in danger of it [Relegation].
“Obviously, we’ve got a massive period for us coming up where we need to consolidate and not let ourselves get drawn into the mix of, dare I say it, the relegation zone.
“This squad of players believes that we can get out of the position we are in. We just need to win on Wednesday, it is simple as that.”
