He told evertonTV: "We go into games expecting to win them. That is no disrespect to our opponents because every game is tough, but the confidence is so high at the moment that we expect to win every game we play in.
"I have never been involved in a team like that before. The team have been winning and you can't have any complaints about that (having to be patient). We were missing players at Middlesbrough and people had to come in and step up and show they are ready to stake a claim for a place.
"It has been hard to watch when the team is on a good run and you are maybe playing here and there. Hopefully I can push on and get in the team in the future."
