?England and Everton number one Jordan Pickford has been pressed to improve his 'emotional balance' following a  topsy-turvy campaign in the Premier League this season.

Everton manager Marco Silva insists he stands by his first choice goalkeeper after a lacklustre performance by Pickford against Newcastle which saw the former Sunderland man's emotions get the better of him.

Marco Silva, speaking to the The Telegraph, addressed the scrutiny Pickford was coming under and his own opinion on the 25-year-old's season.

“I'm not saying he doesn't have it (emotional balance).

“He has the confidence of our goalkeeping coach which is important also and he will keep working with him to give him all the conditions to keep growing as a goalkeeper - to keep growing his emotional balance during matches and to get better every day,” said Silva.

“I see the same humble guy every day, open to listening and to learning.

Pickford's form has been representative of Everton's inconsistent season, which has left them in the bottom half of the Premier League table despite high ambitions at the start of the season.
