No panic buys - boss
Everton will not change strategy on transfers and there will be no panic buys in January, according to boss Marco Silva.
The Toffees have won just once in the last eight matches - against a Burnley side who were struggling at the time - as results took a nose-dive.
However, Silva will not make any snap decisions in the January transfer window.
"We cannot change every week our idea and philosophy as a club if you win two games or you don't win two games," he said.
"I understand our recent form wasn't good enough for us but it is a moment and we are capable of changing things for us again.
"I will not come here and say 'We need this and this and this'. Everything we are going we have been doing from the first day we are here."
Asked about a link with Barcelona's Malcom, Silva added: "No. Nothing."
The Portuguese has, however, ruled out any more loan moves this month having allowed Kieran Dowell to join Sheffield United and Mason Holgate link up with West Brom temporarily.
"Nothing new. You know what we did with Kieran and Mason. We don't put any more to be loaned," he added.
"The focus is on our squad and our next game. We didn't take any decisions about the other situations."
