McCarthy enjoying Everton midfield role

James McCarthy is enjoying his role in Everton's midfield.

The young midfielder is again impressing after his summer move from Wigan Athletic.

"I think I'm mainly there to do a job," he told the Daily Express. "To sweep up and do the dirty work for the flair players to go and express themselves. We have so many flair players in the side that you give them the ball and you expect something to happen.

"If I need to go forward and try and get on the scoresheet I will, but it is difficult at times. If I can help by stopping goals, making passes and getting other players on the ball then I'm happy to do that. I am still young and learning so hopefully I can add goals to my game again."
