Ashley Young has every confidence his Everton side will start to score goals and has urged supporters to be patient as they search for their first win of the Premier League season.
Sunday’s 1-0 defeat to Arsenal saw Sean Dyche’s side remain winless after five league games this season, only scoring in one of those, the 2-2 draw with Sheffield United at Bramall Lane before the international break.
Everton stayed up on the final day of the season after a 1-0 win over Bournemouth, but are in the relegation zone again, having taken only one point from five matches so far this season.
But Young, speaking in the immediate aftermath of the defeat to Mikel Arteta’s side, believes that despite his side’s struggles, now is not the time to hit the panic button.

He said: "You look at the chances we have been creating in the games, and on different days it would be a different story.
"When you are creating those chances, it is down to everyone in the team, not just the forwards, to get the goals.
"I have got every confidence in the team and the squad that we can go and score goals. It is coming."
Before he continued: "We are a few games in, if we were down the back end of the season, then we would be questioning things, but as I say, we are only a few games in now.
"There are plenty of games and plenty of points to play for. If we don’t take the positives out of the games, creating chances like we have done. On different days, we would have more points on the board.
"Again, today, we got done by a little small details. It is one of those where you get done by a set-piece."
