Everton

Sigurdsson eyes positive end to season

23rd April 2019, 17:45 by James Mason

Everton maestro Gylfi Sigurdsson is adamant his side can end the season well and collect the maximum nine points on offer.

The Toffees thrashed Manchester United 4-0 at Goodison Park on Sunday and that result lifted the club to seventh in the Premier League, level on points with eighth-placed Watford, who have a game in hand.

Everton have now racked up four victories from their last five matches and that thumping win over the Red Devils has helped ease the pressure on manager Marco Silva, whose position beyond this season remains uncertain.

The Merseysiders finish off their season with games against Crystal Palace, Burnley and Tottenham Hotspur and Sigurdsson, who has been an ever-present for his side this term, is confident the team can finish with a flourish.

"The target now is to try to finish off the season strongly," he told the club's official website.

"We've got a few tough games left and if we perform like we did against United, that [seventh] is where we can finish."
