Everton goalkeeper Tim Howard has stated that the players owe manager David Moyes a victory, after losing 3-0 to Liverpool on Tuesday on the eve of the coach’s 10-year-anniversary at the club.
A Steven Gerrard hat-trick ended a nine-match unbeaten run for the Toffees, and the United States international is eyeing a win against Sunderland in the FA Cup this weekend.
“It [Anfield] is never a nice place to lose, but with the anniversary and everything, it’s even more so. Ten years is a lot of results, a lot of highs and lows,” the keeper admitted to Mirror Football.
“We had gone into the game on the back of a really good run, but unfortunately it didn’t end in the storybook way we all hoped. But this is a good team, this is a good bunch of boys, and there is definitely no problem with the character in the squad.
“We will be up for the fight at the weekend, and it would be fantastic to get a good result to give everyone a lift after what has been a long week. It won’t be for the lack of trying.
“Losing derbies always hurts, but we are professionals, we want to see it out, so we will get back to work and hopefully get a result,” he stated.Tim Howard Looking For A Positive Response
