Everton want to finish among Premier League elite, says Williams
LONDON – Everton must focus on their own performances and ignore what the clubs around them are doing as they bid to finish among the Premier League’s top six, defender Ashley Williams has said.
Everton, on 57 points after 33 games, currently occupy sixth spot, three points ahead of Arsenal but having played three more games than the London club. Arsenal are at Middlesbrough later on Monday.
“All we can do is look after our own performances. Hopefully we are in that group of teams that are in the mix for those spots,” Williams told the club’s website. (www.evertonfc.com)
Everton’s 3-1 win over Burnley on Saturday was their eighth consecutive home league win. Ross Barkely’s shot deflected off Burnley’s Ben Mee for Everton’s second goal and the midfielder picked up the Man of the Match award.
