Marco Silva: Everton’s game with West Ham has to be turning point

Marco Silva considers the match against West Ham will be turning point in the season of Everton.
Everton head into the fixture having lost their last four Premier League games each and are in the relegation zone.
After the 1-0 defeat at Burnley on October 5, Silva said the match against West Ham was a”must-win game for people”.
When asked about that on Friday and whether the message to the players was it needed to become a turning point in their own campaign, Silva said:”We think it’ll be.
“When I used these words, it was first since for us as a team all the games must be must-win matches. That’s the mentality we’re attempting to create.
“And I always use that because it has to be a turning point for people, since we have all the requirements to accomplish that, full confidence in our players to be able to play in our arena as well, and I believe it’s a fantastic beginning to the match, considering it just like a must-win.
“At the present time, we are not at the best instant with confidence very high, but we have to go for this game thinking it is going to be a must-win game.”
Silva emphasised he had been in frequent contact with the club’s majority shareholder Farhad Moshiri, as is”normal”, also insisted”pressure is really good” because he urged his players to react to their current plight.
He explained:”Pressure for us as a professional has become a privilege, a pleasure, because it means we’re doing exactly what we really love, that we’re functioning in a football club which is demanding for ourselves.
“We have to put this strain behind us every day. It is never a problem and it is something every single day I try to maneuver into my players.
“Stress is really great. It means you are at a club which wishes to acquire, a club having a big ambition, and it’s the reality of the position.
“The dining table is not good. Our last results are not good enough. We must react and the strain has to be great for all of us. Embracing the moment is that the reality in this moment. We can do better, we can win the game.”
