• Manager backs his underfire goalkeeper after Newcastle errors • ‘I want Jordan to keep working the same way with same desire’ Marco Silva has said Jordan Pickford must learn to play with “more emotional balance”, despite insisting he retains complete confidence in the Everton and England goalkeeper.

The £30m keeper has had an erratic season since his heroics at the World Cup and Silva, although backing his player in the buildup to Sunday’s home game with Chelsea, admits Pickford needs to better control his emotions.

Pickford, a boyhood Sunderland fan, endured a torrid game at Newcastle last weekend when he made several errors in the 3-2 defeat and appeared distracted by the taunts of the home crowd.



The Everton manager said: “We knew before the match, he knew also when he played there at Newcastle, that the atmosphere is always not the same to him.

What I want in Jordan is to keep working in the same way with the same desire, improving what we have to improve with him, with more emotional balance in some moments if he can.

If you look at the goals we conceded we must do different in that moment.”

Jordan has all my confidence, like Maarten [Stekelenburg] and João Virginia, our goalkeepers.
