Everton midfielder pleased with his performance against Bournemouth

Everton midfielder Tom Davies has said that he was pleased with his own performance during Saturday’s 2-1 win over Bournemouth in the Premier League.

Joshua King struck early in the second period to send Bournemouth ahead at Goodison Park, which led to more unrest with the home supporters.

Everton turned things around in the latter stages, however, with forgotten man Oumar Niasse coming off the bench to score a double for the Toffees.

Davies was also key to Everton’s comeback though, with the 19-year-old setting up Niasse’s first of the match, before playing a key role in the striker’s second in the 82nd minute.

The teenager has revealed that he was ‘proud’ to contribute to an important three points.

Davies told Everton TV:

“It is always good to be involved with the goals and to get an assist – and maybe half an assist… I am proud of my performance.

“It was good movement and good build up play for the first goal. I was in the middle of the pitch and Oumar made a great run. It was a great first touch by him as well, so I cannot take all the credit – he did a lot after my pass!”

Davies came through the youth system at Everton before making his first-team debut during the 2015-16 campaign.

Everton will now switch their attention to the Europa League as they prepare to host Cypriot side Apollon on Thursday night.
