Round confident Everton boss Moyes can turn things around

Everton assistant manager Steve Round sees no reason why David Moyes won't turn around the Toffees' shaky start to the season. Moyes' side currently sit second-bottom of the Premier League table having collected just two points from their opening five games.

In the wake of Saturday's 1-0 loss to Newcastle, Moyes voiced his intention to lay down the law and emphasised that by calling his players in for early training on Sunday.

"He is resilient and he is tough," said Round.

"His main focus is on turning everything around. He is not happy, that is for sure, and I think the players have experienced that.

"He will be determined to drive the team forward and get back to where we should be.

"There is no question there will be no stone unturned with his preparation and attention to detail.

"This guy is an absolutely outstanding manager and he has managed at the highest level in the Premier League for a long time.

"He will certainly be using all that experience, talent and knowledge to make sure we come out winning."

"For the first time on Saturday our performance let us down and we did not get the result either," added Round.

"The players were very down after the game and we do need a lift.

"It was a dip in confidence and performance levels, energy levels, effort levels - everything wasn't right.

"It is not something the manager will tolerate and it is not something the players will tolerate themselves."
