The USA international has to deal with plenty of solo training and sessions in small groups as being a keeper forces you away from the main group more often than not.
In a recent interview with talkSPORT, Howard was asked if 'training can sometimes be a bit lonely as a goalkeeper' to which he responded:
"It's okay. I think the season in general becomes long and monotonous," Howard offered.
"There are so many games, and it's a little like Groundhog Day over and over. We just try and keep it innovative and change up the routine. But, you know, it's not rocket science.
"You can't really reinvent the wheel too much - there's a certain foundation that you have to do every day as a goalkeeper.
"I've been learning Spanish anyway, with Joel [Robles, Everton's Spanish reserve goalkeeper] and Ignacio [Bergara, their goalkeeping coach], which keeps it fun."
