Everton has to be more ambitious - Goalkeeper Pickford

Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford has urged his team-mates to be ambitious as they prepare for the final Premier League run-in, starting against Burnley.
It has been a topsy-turvy first season for the 23-year-old goalkeeper at Goodison Park, with periods of poor form, finishing bottom of their Europa League group and a change of manager.

He said "As a group of lads, we've got to be ambitious. If you're not ambitious, there's no point in playing football, we want to finish as high as possible and if that's seventh, that's where we want to be. I feel like we're capable and it's an easy target - if we win on Saturday then we go seventh on goal difference. "We have to kick on. We've got 10 games left in the season and as a group, we want to win as many games as possible and that starts on Saturday. We're in ninth compared to when the gaffer came in and we were two points away from the relegation places. Now, we're three points away from seventh so you look at it positively rather than negatively. We've got to keep looking up and go in with a good game plan against Burnley, hopefully come away with the three points. That's what we train all week for, to be prepared for the Saturday's game. I feel like we've got 10 games to show the fans how good we can be. We've had a little break which is going to spur us on for the next 10 games and bring the lads together to win as many games as we can for the fans,  for ourselves"
