Coleman says Everton players feel for the supporters

Everton defender Seamus Coleman has said that the players understand why the supporters expressed their frustration after Saturday’s 2-1 defeat at Burnley.

The Toffees took the lead at Turf Moor on Saturday afternoon, but could not prevent the home side from turning things around to collect all three points.

Everton have incredibly won just one of their 15 away Premier League matches this season – suffering nine defeats in the process.

The club’s fans did not hide their frustrations when the full-time whistle was blown at Turf Moor, and speculation surrounding the future of head coach Sam Allardyce has again gathered pace.

Coleman, who is believed to be on £38,000-a-week at Goodison Park, has said that the Everton players are aware that the team’s away form is not good enough, and the right-back has promised improvement between now and the end of the season.

Coleman told Everton’s official website:

“The fans travel all around the country supporting us and we know what it means to them. They are paying good money and it’s up to us to put in a performance for our home fans and then kick on and try to win away.

“The important thing is to win games. We understand their frustration but we need their support between now and the end of the season.

“I have no doubts we’ll get it because they’ve been fantastic and it’s up to us as players to make sure we perform.”

Everton currently sit 11th in the Premier League table – three points off eighth-placed Leicester City ahead of their home game against Brighton & Hove Albion this weekend.
