Everton boss Marco Silva has warned that Everton players’ attitude is not arguable but would face a  fierce test away at Millwall on Saturday.

The coach wants a response from his team to assuage last weekend’s weak outing at Southampton. Everton’s final hope of bringing to an end a 24-year trophy drought this season is on Saturday and Silva doesn’t want to take chances. He admits their reaction to their challenges is even more threatening.

Everton has only two points from 10 games, conceded first in the Premier League this term, the 2-1 defeat at St Mary’s included.

“I know these numbers and this really shows us that, until now, we didn’t react when something went wrong against us in a match,” he said via The Guardian.

“It is something we are working on and I am speaking to our players about as well. If something happens we still have 30,40,60 minutes and the conditions to continue what we are doing.

“It is clear it is one of the things we have to improve because, if something goes wrong for us in one minute of that match, that shouldn’t mean everything was wrong until then. The facts are clear. We have to improve in these situations.”
