Everton legend Howard Kendall has hailed the form this season of Tim Howard.
Kendall wrote in the Liverpool Echo: "Itâ€™s not just the new manager who has shaken things up and inspired his players, itâ€™s his coaching staff too; in this case the new goalkeeping coach Inaki Bergara.
"No disrespect or criticism intended whatsoever to Chris Woods, the previous keeping coach, but it can boost a player to have a new face, new ideas and new methods of training.
"It is a very individual position on the field, and keepers need to be kept on their toes.
"I remember with Neville Southall, he would only work with a coach he liked â€“ if he didnâ€™t get along with them he didnâ€™t want to know.
"He managed to get the best from Neville, and it was immeasurably beneficial to us as a team.
"Hopefully Howardâ€™s form continues like this all season.
"He knows thereâ€™s a talented young Spaniard hoping to pinch his place as number one but it only drives him on.
"I think heâ€™s been a tremendous signing for the Blues and Iâ€™ve never been one to slate him, itâ€™s always baffled me on the rare occasions people have had a moan.
"For my money, Tim is possibly the best goalkeeper Everton have had since Big Nev and I canâ€™t give him any higher acclaim than that."
