Tom Davies opens up on changes that have helped his Everton performances
Tom Davies has detailed why he thinks he is more ready than ever to deal with the demands of Premier League football.
The midfielder scored his first goal in 18 months during the Blues’ 2-1 victory over Southampton after starting the season on the fringes of the first team.
Davies is hoping to build on his strong performances and believes he is stronger and fitter since his recall into the Blues line-up.
“I am feeling strong and fit – that side of my game is coming along and I can feel it out on the pitch,” Davies told evertontv.
“I have always done extra in the gym and I am a vegetarian now.
“I feel strong and also that I am growing into the physicality of the Premier League. I am happy with everything and how things are going for me.
“Scoring is an area of my game I can still improve on a lot and it is definitely something I need to do more.
“I know I can get goals, it is a case of finding opportunities in games to score.
“I managed to get one at Southampton, so I’ll look back at how I did that and try to recreate it in more games.”
Davies has a chance to cement his place in Marco Silva’s team with the Everton midfield being hit by injuries and he is hoping his experience as a senior figure in the England U21 set-up will help him further.
“When I haven’t been playing at Everton I have had a chance to go there and play,” he said.
“I feel like a responsible figure in that team.
“It is massively helping me, the coaching staff there look after me, so I am grateful for that opportunity.

“At Everton, I am just looking to learn from everyone.
“Whether that is a younger lad coming in and doing something different, or the older lads who have been in the game a while.
“Fabian has won the Premier League and the older players have been around a long time and gained a lot of experience.”
The 21-year-old also revealed the areas of his game he is working on.
He said: “It is simple things like game management.
“You are always looking to improve as a player.
“I am not going to settle for being at the level I am now.”
