​Demarai Gray confident of improving for second Everton season

Demarai Gray is confident he can deliver in his second season at Everton.

The English winger contributed to 11 goals – scoring six – in his opening season after joining Everton from Bayer Leverkusen in summer 2021.

"As a winger, you are viewed as a player who can win games every week," said Gray.

"It is a position with a lot of responsibility, and I put that pressure on myself. I enjoy it and go out there thinking I am the player who will make the difference.

"It won't always happen, other things have an influence, like injuries. When the quiet patches come, I accept they are part of the game, and don't get too down.

"It is just a matter of working to change things and trusting in my ability.

"When it is a difficult moment for the team, I view myself as someone who can change the situation and give the team confidence. I want to be that player making the difference."
