Everton boss Marco Silva has showered praises on his players for bouncing back after the humiliating defeat at home to Tottenham on Sunday.

The Brazillian who helped Everton record their biggest away win since 1985 thanked the fans for their support after today’s thrashing of Burnley at Turf Moor.

“We learn every time, not just when we have a bad result,” Silva told Toffeweb.

“We had a really tough result in the last game and even today we won the match clear but we learned as well, for sure. It’s part of our process as a team.

“My first words are for our fans and for our players. The fans welcomed our players before the match [which was] fantastic after a really tough result.

“And our players deserved this win and the three points. It was a good win for us. We got three important points for us and now is the time to rest and prepare for the [next match].

“I think the best solution for us to the last result was you want to play as quickly as you can. Luckily for us we played after three days, so quickly, and [we produced the response]. We should [have won] and we did. We showed our quality and I don’t have doubts, our players don’t have doubts about our quality or our attitude as a team.

“Our last game wasn’t a normal one from us but we are here to fight, to compete and to show the ambition we have as a club.”
