LEON OSMAN says it is a pleasure to be involved in Everton’s stylish run of form.
The midfielder’s first Premier League goal of the season sparked his side’s first-half fight back against Southampton on Saturday, and heralded an emphatic period of play for the Blues.
Osman, 31, admitted the slick way Everton have been playing as they climbed to second place in the table has been appreciated in the dressing room.
“We’re playing some decent football at the minute and hopefully the fans are enjoying it – we’re enjoying playing it,” he said. “We don’t want to get carried away. Things can change so easily in the Premier League and you saw in the second half (against Southampton) that it wasn’t as easy on the eye as in the first but we had to grind it out and we did that.
“I'm not sure what the key is to maintaining it. I’m sure the manager is trying to figure it out too but we have just got to keep believing in ourselves and stay confident.”
Everton travel to Wigan’s DW Stadium on Saturday before another international break means a pause in the fixture list, and the midfielder hopes David Moyes’ men can keep their momentum going.
He said: “We showed good character on Saturday. The lads didn't panic or get nervous and change the way we played even though we conceded that early goal. We carried on going and were rewarded with the goals before half time.
“Wigan isn't too far away we usually fill all of our end and have a few pockets of our supporters in the home end too.
“I’m sure we'll get a good following and hopefully we can carry on playing the way we have been.”
