Donovan: Everton showing we can match anyone
Donovan has seen an improvement in performances which has helped redress some of the difficulties the club faces earlier in the season.
"In the early part, when things don't go your way, it's tough. You kind of live and die by the results sometimes," he told BBC Radio Merseyside.
"In the last couple of weeks we've played a lot better and we've got some really important results, which has been good for everyone."
