Everton star Howard: ‘We go again!’

first_imgEverton goalkeeper Tim Howard insists the side will not dwell on their disappointing 2-1 defeat to Tottenham, and will put all their focus on getting back to winning ways against Hull City on Wednesday.Roberto Martinez’s men took an early lead following an explosive start at White Hart Lane in Sunday’s Premier League clash, Kevin Mirallas finding the net with a stunning curling strike.But the visitors failed to build on their supremacy, as Spurs went in front before the break through goals from Christian Eriksen and Roberto Soldado and held on in the second-half to secure victory.The result ended Everton’s run of eight games unbeaten in all competitions, but Howard has assured fans the team will not allow the defeat to affect them over a hectic festive period, starting with their midweek Tigers tie.“We were expected to win I think, so we’re disappointed from our point of view,” said the USA international.“Spurs are a good team, there’s no question how talented they are going forward, we tried to expose them a little bit but we just didn’t do that enough.“But we’re not a team, and our manager isn’t a manager, who dwells on results, we’re just looking forward to the Hull game now.“We’re at home, it’ll be an opportunity for us to get three points and we are confident we can do that, so we go again.“It’ll be good to be back at Goodison Park to get that feeling again of getting out there in front of our own supporters and have them roar us on.“This doesn’t knock us. It’s unfortunate we lost, but we’ll go again and I’ll tell you what, if come Thursday morning we’ve got three points in the bag we’ll feel on top of the world again.”last_img read more
