Oumar Niasse delighted with fresh chance at Everton

Oumar Niasse is delighted with his fresh chance at Everton.

Over 500 days after first appearing for Everton, he came full circle by netting the final goal in the routine 3-0 victory over recently relegated Sunderland in the Carabao Cup.

"In life, everything can happen," he said. "That is what I am saying, always. Sometimes you think everything is going against you but it's just the way that God chooses, the way that God gives to you.

"You have to live with that and be the nicest person you can be, work hard, be a professional and, even if you're under-18, under-23 or with the first team, you have to work hard. That's what I think is the best thing to do."
