Everton skipper Neville: We must be more ruthless

Everton skipper Phil Neville admits they must be more ruthless.

Neville says Everton need to rediscover a killer instinct if they are to end a run of four straight draws against Sunderland this weekend.

"It was probably the best we've played all season, maybe the best we've played since January," Neville told evertontv. "We went to Fulham and totally dominated the game, we had all the possession, we had all the quality and they had nothing, probably two shots on goal, and scored two goals.

"I think we created maybe six or seven chances where maybe if we'd been a bit more clinical we'd have come out probably 7-2 winners. That's how if felt playing. We just need to be a little bit more ruthless, not totally dependant on [Nikica] Jelavic scoring all the time and chip in with goals from centre midfield, wide areas and at the back. It's up to us all to do it.

"Drawing is our Achilles heel at the moment and we need to win these games," he added. "But we've got to take confidence from the performance - it was outstanding.

"We're playing full of confidence and with movement and teams are finding it hard to play against us."
