Everton midfielder Andre Gomes has opened up on his lack of goals at the club and has admitted he’d like to add more goals to his game.

The 26-year-old playmaker has become a fans’ favourite during his time at Goodison Park, so far he has only netted once in 41 games  – in the 3-1 home defeat to Wolverhampton Wanderers over a year ago on February 2, 2019.

When asked about his lack of goals on the Portuguese publication Record, Gomes responded:

“Of course, if I could go ahead and score a few more goals, I wouldn’t mind but I also enjoy organising the team and being one of the go-to players for the team to play good football.

“I would like to have more assists and goals, but I have to understand what the team needs and adapt to those circumstances.

“I feel confident even if I play a little further back. I spend more time deeper and I have a lot more ball.

“My intention is to give balance and have a good shape.”

The Portugal international has also talked about head coach Carlo Ancelotti and said that the Italian has been great with him from the start.

“From the start Carlo Ancelotti had a spectacular attitude towards me,” Gomes said.

“He called to find out how I was doing and what stage of recovery I was in.

“He is a coach with an incredible experience, he has worked for the best clubs in the world and is an exceptional person.

“It was a delicate phase when Marco Silva departed but the club decided to make a change and Ancelotti has done an exceptional job.”
