Marco Silva is ready to lay down a law where English is the language of Everton's dressing room as he vowed to improve his levels of communication.

Everton had targeted Silva to replace Ronald Koeman - then Watford manager - last November but were refused permission to approach him.

The 28-year-old France global was key to 10-man Everton rescuing a 2-2 draw with Wolverhampton Wanderers last weekend as Silva took charge of his first competitive match in the Merseyside outfit's opening Premier League fixture.
