Everton need Jordan Pickford back on song in 2019/20

Everton have had an indifferent season in Marco Silva’s first campaign at the helm.

The Toffees have been inconsistent for the most part, but find themselves in contention for a seventh-placed finish thanks to some stronger form of late.

Everton have turned out three straight victories and could yet sneak into the Europa Legaue.

There have been some strong personal performances this term from the likes of Lucas Digne, Idrissa Gueye, Andre Gomes and Richarlison, and also some poor ones.

Perhaps one man who will feel as though he can improve ahead of next season is goalkeeper Jordan Pickford.

The stopper, signed by Ronald Koeman in the summer of 2017 for £30 million (BBC Sport), has been in questionable form this season between the sticks..

 

England’s number one has made clangers against Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur and Newcastle United, and some have criticised his lack of control in heated situations.

Pickford showed against Newcastle that he can be slightly volatile, and Everton need him to maintain his focus in 2019/2020.

At the moment, it is threatening to overshadow the fact that he is a brilliant goalkeeper.

He is an excellent shot-stopper and one of the best distributors in the Premier League.

The Toffees need him to keep his emotions in check a little better and become the solid basis which the team can build from.
