Osman praises Everton management for handling early season slump

Leon Osman has praised Everton management for not panicking during their early season slump.

The Blues currently lie eighth in the league but have no recorded hugely impressive wins over both the division's title chasers.

Osman told evertonTV: "To beat a top team is a great achievement and we've managed that in the last two home games against Chelsea and United. We're progressing in the right direction again, we're getting our confidence back and hopefully we can go on a good run now.

"It's all credit to the management and to the lads, for all the effort we've put in - not just on the pitch, but behind the scenes as well, building towards the games. It's always great when things pay off on the pitch."
