​Duelofeu looking to improve in all aspects

Everton winger Gerard Duelofeu says he is looking to become a better all-round player in order to adapt to the requirements of the Premier League.

The Spaniard found himself on the scoresheet in Everton's 6-2 win over Sunderland on Sunday, but has been primarily used as a bit-part player so far this campaign.

"I'm a special player, I look to do different things - but I also have to follow the instructions of the manager. That's important to me,' Duelofeu told The Sunday Times.

"It is finding the blend between doing special things but also being disciplined and playing for the team.

"Nowadays quality is not enough. You have to have an all-round game and I am trying to develop that.

"I have to defend but when I'm defending also stay ready for when we attack and to combine with people like Ross [Barkley], who I always play well with."
