Sean Dyche: ‘When I got here the noise was about Everton being done’

Everton boss Sean Dyche spoke to the media today ahead of their clash versus reigning Premier League champions Manchester City on Sunday.

The ex-Burnley manager tackled the viewpoint that; Everton were ‘done’, in Friday’s press conference.

The Toffees moved two points clear of the relegation zone on Monday after securing a shock 5-1 victory against Brighton and Hove Albion at the Amex Stadium.

Speaking live on Sky Sports, Dyche said: “When I got here the noise was about Everton being done. We’ve obviously shown we are not done and there is more life in what we are doing.

“That does change things. Being in the Premier League is a different viewpoint, that’s the first concern.

“But there are some background chats about what is needed because you have to continue.

“It’s a fluid business, one that I’m used to. You are always fluid thinking anyway, it’s not about an exact thought.

“It’s about different scenarios with players, player contracts, ways the club is operating, ways they are looking to operate.

“Ultimately this season it is about getting past this situation and growing for the future.”

Since joining the Merseyside club, Dyche has picked up 17 points in 15 games. The Toffees have three crucial matches remaining of the season; Manchester City (h), Wolverhampton Wanderers (a) and AFC Bournemouth (h).

Dyche also gave an update on Seamus Coleman’s injury: “Seamus did have an operation and it has gone well. All being well he should be fit for next season.

“I will be speaking to him ongoing. He is well in the loop where he sits at this football club.”
