Everton goalkeeper Pickford: Set-piece defending not good enough

Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford admits their set-piece defending hasn't been good enough.

Everton were held 1-1 at home to Huddersfield on Saturday and Philip Billing's opener for the visitors was the fourth goal they have conceded from a corner in five games.

"Everyone has got their own different ways that they like to set up from a corner," he said.

"The main thing is not to concede and we have conceded too many. It has cost us four points in the last three games.

"We need to sort it out. We will work hard on the training ground when we get back from international duty.

"[Marco Silva] is massive on offensive set plays too and we have scored a couple of goals that way. If we can keep scoring and stop conceding that's how you win games."
