Marco Silva Says Cardiff Win Could Be the Catalyst That Turns the Toffees Season Around

Marco Silva was thrilled with Everton's 0-3 win over Cardiff on Tuesday evening and suggested that the win could act as a turning point in the Toffees' stuttering season.

A brace from Gylfi Sigurdsson and a late strike from Dominic Calvert-Lewin did the damage for Everton, bringing an end to their three-game losing streak in the process.

When asked if ​the victory could act as a turning point in ​Everton's season, Silva responded positively and claimed that the Toffees are already looking ahead to the Merseyside derby on Sunday.

"We hope so," Silva said, as per the ​Evening Express. "We have been missing some consistency as a team and have lost confidence.

“We have been up and down many times. One of the things I want is more consistency. When you are winning the confidence can return. We knew they were strong and would compete hard for second balls.

“We now have a special match for our fans and hope to give them a good feeling.

“Sunday is a really important game. But it will be a different game in front of our fans and we expect a fantastic atmosphere.”

Silva praised Sigurdsson's performance, after his brace saw him become the highest scoring Icelandic player in Premier League history, surpassing former ​Chelsea striker Eidur Gudjohnsen.

“You are all seeing a different Gylfi this season. Every single day he gives everything for the team," Silva added.

“When he can score and assist it improves his confidence. He plays with a little more freedom and links more.”
