"Football players have duties but obligations as well".

Everton could lose five consecutive Premier League matches against Arsenal for the first time in 19 years.

Silva says he is "not happy with what happened" and that the "feedback (Pickford) gave to me was that he will learn from what's happened".

"I think it is clear in his mind about his obligations as a football player, the position he has in our club and his national team". It's a big learning [curve] to him everything that has happened.

"It is already done". 'It (25 matches without victory against the top six) is something which should not happen again if you do the right things. "No problem. No-one is happy with the situation. The matter is finished in this moment".

"I have to smile, there is nothing more I can do". I am 100 per cent sure he will do that in the next few seasons. (Earlier in the season) we lost some confidence, we had a break and after we worked really well.

Pickford has to fame in recent years in the Premier League and also the global stage, with his ability on the ball making him a real modern goalkeeper. "I don't have doubts about that".

Corbyn has said he was "waiting to see the red lines move" and had not "noticed any great change in the government's position". If we can not secure a majority among Conservative and DUP MPs we have no choice but to reach out across the House of Commons.

Unai Emery's Gunners are looking to cement their top-four place but away wins have been hard to come by with only five all season. Everton won 2-0 with goals by Zouma and Bernard.

With Granit Xhaka facing a late fitness test, Ramsey's availability provides a further boost for Emery's improving team, in which the attacking talents of Mesut Ozil are also an increasing strength.

"It's fantastic for us when we can play away against West Ham, play against Arsenal, and our goalkeeper can have very calm afternoons".

Emery said: "Aaron trained normally and all the players are working".

Both coaches played down the incident in their post-match media conferences with the Toffees boss preferring to pay tribute to match-winner Jagielka, who became the oldest goal-scorer of the Premier League season to date when he bundled home following Lucas Digne's long throw.

"We have confidence now but we know it's very hard and I think it's a long way until the last matches".
