The Everton Marco Silva was unhappy after receiving a goal and then seeing how Kurt Zouma was sent off.

A single goal by Andre Gay gave Watford the 1-0 victory over Everton in the English Premier League on Saturday.

And the Blues are now in the ninth position of the table with 33 points, after only nine wins, six draws and 12 defeats.

This has led coach Marco Silva very frustrated.

“When you do not achieve the result and do not score goals with the chances we created, it is a big frustration for us,” Silva told the club’s official website.

“The first half was balanced, they created one good chance and we had a very good chance with Cenk Tosun.”

“Second half was the same again. They started to create more problems with their long balls,” he commented.

“I felt Andre Gomes and Gana were getting tired after we played on Wednesday night. Watford had one week to prepare for the game.”

“I changed Andre and was preparing to put on Bernard when they scored,” Silva continued.

“We reacted [to going behind].”

Opinion: The PFA Award should go to an EPL champion

Let us tell you why the PFA Award for the best player of the season should, in fact, go to a Premier League champion...

“We had two balls off the bar and one clear chance for Dominic,” the manager said.

“We created enough chances to score but were not effective [with our finishing]. Sometimes in these moments, something can happen – but it is only us who can work more to change things.”

“When you play away and create the chances we did – and clear chances in some moments – we have to be more effective,” the Everton boss commented.

“In one moment they will start to go in and we’ll start to win matches.”

“But there is just one way: work more, become more confident and look forward and try to change things,” he added.

“It is a good moment to rest the players, then bring them back to prepare for the next match against Cardiff and the derby against Liverpool.”
