Distin feels his partnership with Phil Jagielka can become a key asset for the Blues.
He told evertonfc.com: "You really depend on the guy you are playing with and with Phil we don't really feel the need to talk because we understand each other without needing to talk. It happens sometimes when you find that chemistry. But we are still conceding goals so it means we can do better.
"We have paid a big price for small mistakes in every game. We continue to work hard and obviously we can't be happy because we haven't won a league game but we feel like we are doing the right things so we are still positive. If we carry on like that it can only be positive."
