Stressing the need for a win in London, the youngster told his club's official website: "We need a win there".

There are ten games left in the 2016-17 Premier League season and Chelsea have a ten point lead at the top of the table over Spurs and a twelve point lead over third-placed Manchester City.

"That's a so far story, good shape now doesn't guarantee you anything, but it's fair to say we've shown we can take these games on, home and away".

We'll have to wait and see if any club will be prepared to meet that figure but it shouldn't be too much of a problem for the likes of Chelsea, Liverpool or Tottenham given the financial resources available at those clubs. We face lots of games - lots of very important games in a few days that will define our season.

The Gunners dropped to sixth in the table following their recent defeat at West Brom and face a battle to qualify for the Champions League.

Everton have not won a league game at Anfield this century, with Kevin Campbell's goal in a 1-0 victory in September 1999 the last winning strike by an Evertonian in front of the Kop.

"From the beginning of the season, we have all the trophies in our minds", he said.

We have already claimed the EFL Cup, we are still in the Europa League and our race to finish in the top four looks promising though we ought to be challenging for the Premier League title.

"The team is ready to win it and this is what we want".

He says he's pleased with the way his career is progressing and believes he can be trusted to produce whenever called upon.

"I think it will help me for the future - in my career". 26 shots were fired in, 25 of them from within the confines of the penalty area - both attacks clearly fancied their chances, and both defences were happy to oblige.
