‘We’re desperate for a win’

Demarai Gray has acknowledged the importance of Everton’s fixture against Newcastle on Thursday, describing the match as one he and his teammates are ‘desperate’ to win.

Speaking to Evertonfc.com, the 26-year-old said: “They (Newcastle) have shown their ability this season, especially with the position they are in.

“They have done well, and we are aware they will be confident on the back of last weekend’s win. But any team that comes to Goodison knows it’s never easy. It’s never going to be comfortable. If we focus on our game, our plan and apply ourselves right for the game then we can fight for the points.    

“When the fans are behind us, it helps massively. It’s never an easy place to play, we need to feed off the atmosphere and make it a tough game for Newcastle. We know how important a win could be and we’re desperate to get one.”
