Gylfi Sigurdsson has urged his teammates to stay positive ahead of Everton’s match against Liverpool.

Everton narrowly lost out to Leicester City in their last Premier League outing. Kelechi Iheanacho’s goal in the dying minutes of the game ended Everton’s hopes of rescuing at least a point from the match.

The Toffees now see themselves hanging above the relegation zone by a thread as they have managed to amass only 14 points from as many games. They face league leaders Liverpool up next which could mean more trouble in the Goodison Park. But Gylfi Sigurdsson is not the one to lose hope.

Everton midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson has asked his teammates to stay positive despite their turmoil. The 30-year old wants his team to focus on the Merseyside derby that is due in the next few days.

“The performance was better than last week (a 2-0 defeat by Norwich). We have to keep going, look at the videos, stick together and stay positive,” he said as per Daily Mail.

“We have a lot of games coming up where we can change this.

“We’ve come away with as many points as we did last week, that’s the frustrating thing, but we have another game on Wednesday which is a big one for us.”
