Everton striker Tosun: International break came at right time

Everton striker Cenk Tosun feels the international break came at the right time.

Everton lost to Manchester United immediately before the international break, a third successive setback, but lie seventh in the Premier League, five points off the top spot they occupied last month.

“When the season started, the team impressed me so much with the new players," said Tosun to evertonfc.com. “The first game against Tottenham was unbelievable.

“I was just excited to get in the team and worked harder and harder every day.

“We started very well and played really good games but then we had a small bad period.

“We had injuries and suspensions for Richarlison and Lucas Digne, who are both very important for our team.

“Hopefully, after the international break everybody will be available to play.

“We are a very strong team in the head and we can change things in our favour.

“We will grow up from these three bad games and start winning again."
