Everton manager Marco Silva discusses progress of Tom Davies this season

The midfielder has come to the fore this season.

Marco Silva has praised Everton academy graduate Tom Davies for the way he has improved this season, as per the club’s official website.

Silva called Davies a ‘different player’ from last season and has been impressed by the way he responded to not playing so much last season to seize the chance this time around.

He said: “Even mentally, Tom in this moment is a different player. Last season he had some moments being captain and that was an important thing for him. It was a big pressure on his shoulders but it is important for him to feel this type of natural pressure in football. And he did really well.


“Against Tottenham he had a very good game again. We had some chats during pre-season. I was clear that our season would be tough and everybody would get his chance to play. It is a moment for the other players to show, ‘I am here, I am ready, I want the chance’. And Tom did that. He is taking his chance and I am really pleased to see it.”

TBR’s View – Davies has a real opportunity now to show the player he can be

One of the big questions hanging over Everton in pre-season was how well they could replace Idrissa Gueye and it remains unanswered now.

Davies is a different type of player, but shares the same hunger as the now Paris Saint-Germain battler and has a real opportunity to nail down a spot in Everton’s midfield.

Most Evertonians will be willing him on to grab it with both hands because it’s clear just how much he cares about the club.
