Baines: Everton will continue their attacking momentum

Leighton Baines insists that Everton will continue their attacking style despite going down 4-1 to Arsenal at the weekend in the FA Cup. "When we're chasing the game and we go 2-1 down we try to attack. Always we try to attack because we're an attacking team but we've got to get the balance right so that we can't get countered on," he told the Liverpool Echo.

"Even at 2-1 down I actually felt we were going to win the game. We were having our best spell and I felt we were going to go on and win it.

"But then we got done and the fourth was a counter-attack when we're up in their half, probably should make a pass, and before you know it within four or five passes they've scored a goal which you've got to give them credit for. They're a good side.

"The nature of our play is that we are a bit expansive at times but it's something we don't want to compromise on. We just want to get better at it, and ultimately that will lead us to getting better results.

"We're sticking to our guns and our style. We're buying into it and trying to improve every day. It's got to be a collective thing."
