20 Y/O Ready To Fight For A Spot In The Everton Lineup: A Bright Spot Under Silva

Everton are looking to capitalise on their decent start to the season as they look to build on the four points from their first two games. While their first one was a hard-fought draw against Wolves, their second match saw them edge past Southampton by 2-1. 

However, the main problem that looms large on the Toffees is injuries to a number of their key players, including Morgan Schneiderlin, who has picked up a knock in the last match against the Saints. The Frenchman is set to miss the next game against Bournemouth, which might open the door for Tom Davies to get his first start of the season under the new boss Marco Silva.

With new signing Andre Gomes also unavailable due to injury, the 20-year-old Englishman is set to be included in the team. The player is one of the most underrated youngsters in the team and would be used as a sporadic option when both Schneiderlin and Gomes are fit.

This has, though, not dampened his spirits as the midfielder is ready to fight for his place under Marco Silva this season. The Toffees have spent a significant amount this summer to beef up all their departments including the midfield, and this might be a threat for youngsters like Davies, who could see a lot of their game time cut short.

Davies was one of the highly rated performers from the last term, which was nothing less than a nightmare for Everton. The Merseyside club saw themselves in the relegation zone, but fought back well to end at the eighth spot in the Premier League table. The 20-year old has earned rave reviews for his strong showing in the middle of the pitch for the Toffees, and he is expected to have a bright future ahead of him.

In the next season, however, the player will have to prove his worth once again in front of the new manager. Fighting for a place would be tough for Davies with a number of quality players included in the side but he seems ready for the challenge. 

The English midfielder has admitted that he has a stern test ahead of him this season but has also said that it would help him to develop as a player. He said

“There’s big competition so for me when I get a chance I’ve got to take it so that’s what I tried to do.

“It’s always high-tempo training and everyone trying to get in the team, so it’s only going to benefit me.”

Everton have already sacked two managers within twelve months, and Silva is expected to deliver immediate results for his new club. He would probably not look to experiment too much with his squad once he has found the right combination and this can be an excellent opportunity for Davies to prove his worth if he is handed an outing in the next match against the Cherries.
