Look, we've put ourselves under a lot of pressure by not getting points on the board before this game.
Did I expect us to get anything out of Arsenal? No, I probably didn't. The only hope we could hold on to was our record against them over the last four or five seasons where we've shown a bit of grit and determination.

Nobody likes to come to Goodison Park, but straight from the off we didn't get out of our half. You give players like Declan Rice and Oleksandr Zinchenko the space to do whatever they felt like - speed the tempo, slow the tempo - and that quietens the fans down and gets Arsenal into a rhythm.
