Everton Squad Strength Will Be Key, Says Richarlison
Everton forward Richarlison says that his team’s fortunes could be dictated by how Marco Silva rotates his squad during the festive period.
The Toffees are moving into a congested section of the season, with lots of games over Christmas and New Year. Richarlison thinks Everton have a big enough squad to cope.
“Marco Silva trusts the players and we really trust in him,” said the summer signing. “There has to be some rotation given tiredness, the amount of games in December – it is busy. “We need some respite, but that creates opportunities for other players to go on the field and send a message. [Strength in depth] is essential for the team.
“Dom Calvert-Lewin is a great player and helps out loads up front. He holds up the ball really well and scores goals.
“He is still very young so there is room to develop. But I think he will be really important in helping us out for the rest of the season.”
