Everton goalkeeper Pickford: Pundit noise doesn't bother me; let them talk!

Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford says he doesn't worry about criticism from pundits.

An error against Manchester United in pre-season has been followed up by three impressive displays in his side's opening three Premier League games of the season.

However, those impressive displays over the past year still didn't prevent Roy Keane, Gary Neville, Ian Wright and Lee DIxon from all criticising the Blues star.

But Pickford, who can write his way into England's record books by keeping a clean sheet against Poland tonight, has a simple message for his critics.

“Let them talk! It's noise. And I feel like I've got my job to do, they've got their job to do," he said.

“I'm focused on doing everything I can on the training pitch like always, giving 100 percent, always improving, trying to get that one or two percent better each time, keeping clean sheets.

“I think if they are still making noise then it's a good thing really. For me, it's just performing on the pitch and not getting distracted by any of that."
