Everton defender Tarkowski makes new plea to fans

Everton defender James Tarkowski has invited all supporters to watch his team in the coming weeks.

The Toffees have emerged out of the Premier League relegation zone with an impressive win over Newcastle United.

After the 3-0 success at home, which would have put Everton tenth without a Premier League points deduction, Tarkowski talked up his side.

He stated, pv “It sounds daft but the league table is just there for now to show teams where they're at. We know where we're at as a team.

“Just come watch us play! It's not irrelevant but it's not at the forefront of our minds.

“That's how we perform and pick up results. That's what we're doing now so we'll concentrate on that rather than the league table.

“The spirit and togetherness of the team is right on the gaffer's list of important things to work on.

“Beyond the tactics, that's the most important thing for him and us. We've worked on that as a team and you can see that on the pitch, how we are playing and how we are together.

“It's a gradual process. It's not like it's one meeting and we all have a big open conversation.

“Things do happen like that from time to time but it's more how you treat each other and train together every day. That spirit is on show for everyone to see."
