Everton goalkeeper Tim Howard believes this season's Premiership will be it's most competitive yet.

He told evertonTV: "We started really well last year and it kicked us on. Hopefully we will do the same this season.

"Any team that does not start well put themselves in a terrible hole.

"If you look at the transfer window, clubs are buying all over the place - everybody is strengthening so it is going to be a lot tougher."
