Football: Silva proud of Pickford response, Odds Silva proud of Pickford response

Pickford, who was to blame for the loss at Liverpool on Sunday, denied Christian Atsu four minutes from time at Goodison Park as a tight Premier League encounter ended 1-1.
It had been a difficult few days for Pickford after a late blunder in Sunday's derby against Liverpool at Anfield proved costly.
Everton boss Silva was full of praise for his keeper, saying:

It is a normal situation for him, with his quality. I didn't see anything different from the previous game at home. It is normal with his quality and he helped the team again. It's nothing new

A draw was actually the least Everton deserved after a controlling most of the game. The Toffees had 76 per cent possession against a Newcastle side intent on defending and registered 19 shots.
Richarlison cancelled out Salomon Rondon's early breakaway strike for the visitors but Everton ultimately paid the price for spurning two great chances in the first half.
Glyfi Sigurdsson and Cenk Tosun both looked certain to score only to be denied by a fine block by Federico Fernandez and great save by Martin Dubravka respectively.
