Everton coach, Rafael Benitez is very pleased with the progress shown by his team in just a short time. He also hopes his team’s positive trend will continue.
Initially, the football club based in Merseyside was doubtful of being able to compete with the big teams in the Premier League. The reason is, in the summer transfer market of 2021, they do not bring in quality new players.
However, Rafael Benitez with his experience so far is able to polish Everton quite well. Most recently, the team nicknamed The Toffees managed to hold Manchester United to a 1-1 draw when they traveled to Old Trafford on Saturday (2/10) night WIB.
Their success in holding the English Premier League giants puts eternal rivals Liverpool now perched in fifth place in the standings. In fact, it only has a two-point difference with Chelsea, who now leads the first place.
After successfully picking one point against Manchester United, Rafael Benitez is very happy. He believes that if all the players are fit, he believes that Everton will get a lot of positive results.
Speaking to the media, the Spanish football coach said he was very happy with his team’s results at Old Trafford. He said Everton was close to achieving perfect results. According to him, the fans should be proud because the players performed very well against a good team.
According to him, a draw is good for Everton. Rafael Benitez also explained that if all the players were available and the team spirit could be maintained, the Toffees could have won more in the Premier League. He hopes that injured players can recover soon and integrate with the current team’s game. So that later it can be seen where the position of the team will finish the competition.
It should be noted, in the 7 matches that the Merseyside Blue football club has played, only one defeat in the domestic league has been played.
The next match, Rafael Benitez’s team will face West Ham United at Goodison Park on Sunday (17/10) night WIB.
