Everton newcomer Richarlison scored his third goal in two matches to secure a win for the Toffees over Southampton in his debut at Goodison Park. It's important for us as staff and important for the players as well.

"[It's] important for him and for his team-mates as well", Silva told Sky Sports of Richarlison.

A move away from Merseyside will do the Curacao global a world of good, granting him consistent first team football and a chance to shine at an ambitious club looking to return to the top flight.

Everton fans watched their side get their home campaign off to a winning start on Saturday afternoon when their team overcame Southampton 2-1 at Goodison Park.

"I thought at the time Danny had just missed his chance and hit the bar but in fairness their keeper (Jordan Pickford) has made an outstanding save to knock it on to the bar".

Goals from Kieran Trippier and Harry Kane in the final 20 minutes earned the three points after Aleksandar Mitrovic had cancelled out Lucas Moura's first-half strike.

"We see that movement time and time again and we should recognise it and deal with it and then we had opportunities to stop the ball at source and stop it being played into a good area".

They were leading through Marko Arnautovic's first-half penalty but Callum Wilson's solo goal and Steve Cook's header condemed the hosts to a second straight defeat. He had five welts on his back.

"You saw the state of Ings' shirt". The linesman has a lot of experience.

Speaking generally, Pochettino said: "I am so open if players want to leave, but if they are going to be here I want all commitment, if not we can find a solution".

"We don't want to be looking back at the end of the season wishing we'd picked up points here or there. We will look back on it, I didn't feel he needed to follow through".

"It's not sour grapes and I'm not trying to get the kid in trouble, but it's got to be consistent".
