Rafa Benitez was pleased to get a 1-1 draw at Goodison Park tonight and it was an excellent result for the team.
We needed to get something tonight after turned out to be a disappointing display at home and a 3-0 defeat against West Ham on Saturday.
Rafa Benitez and Marco Silva meet
This is what Rafa Benitez told the BBC after the game tonight:
“I think the work they produced against a very good team was fantastic.”
“We suffered after taking the lead but we were better in the second half and both teams had chances to score.”
“The players are doing what they have to do but we would be a little bit stronger with a bit more accuracy in our counter-attacks.”
“The main thing was to defend well and create chances and that is what we did.”
“We have to be realistic, they are a good team and they had chances in the first half,.”
“And they have four games unbeaten at home, so we have to credit our players.”
Fabian Schar picked up his 5th yellow card tonight – it seems like an average of one yellow card per game for the popular Swiss International.
And he will now miss the home game against Wolves on Sunday afternoon at St. James’ Park.
Wolves will be tough after they beat Chelsea 2-1 at home tonight.
Let’s hope we can get a win against Wolves and climb the league table.
