Leon Osman is confident Everton are returning to their best after their fightback at Hull City on Sunday.

“We knew it wouldn’t be easy to go to Hull and get a result,” midfielder Osman told evertonfc.com. “It was difficult and they got the crowd behind them early on.

“They got up and running and scored two goals but, yet again, we are disappointed at the way we conceded them.

“But we showed a lot of character to get back into it as we did and in the end, we deserved the point.

“We possibly could have won it. When you come back from 2-0 down, it is a great feeling – sometimes it’s as if you have won the match.

“We feel like we started to gel in the last half an hour. We feel really positive and now we have got to carry this momentum forward into the next couple of games, which are really important for us. We are a positive unit.

“We may have been conceding goals of late but we concede them as a team. There is no individual blame. It could have been a bad start to a big week but we clawed our way back, showed great character and we need to take this attitude forward.”
