Everton boss Silva will not change transfer strategy

The Toffees have won just once in the last eight matches.

Everton manager Marco Silva insists he will not change his strategy on transfers and there will be no panic buys in response to their poor recent form.

The Toffees have won just once in the last eight matches – against a Burnley side who were struggling at the time – as results took a nose-dive.

However, Silva will not make any snap decisions in the January transfer window.

"We cannot change every week our idea and philosophy as a club if you win two games or you don't win two games," he said.

"I understand our recent form wasn't good enough for us but it is a moment and we are capable of changing things for us again.

"I will not come here and say 'We need this and this and this'. Everything we are going we have been doing from the first day we are here."

Asked about a link with Barcelona's Malcom Silva added: "No. Nothing."

The Portuguese has, however, ruled out any more loan moves this month having allowed Kieran Dowell to join Sheffield United and Mason Holgate link up with West Brom temporarily.

"Nothing new. You know what we did with Kieran and Mason. We don't put any more to be loaned," he said.

"The focus is on our squad and our next game. We didn't take any decisions about the other situations."

Silva faces a tricky decision over his team selection for the FA Cup visit of League Two leaders Lincoln, semi-finalists in 2017, as a number of players look in need of a rest.

Midfielder Andre Gomes, arguably their best player this season, and Richarlison are two prime candidates but Silva does not want to take too many risks as Everton have failed to get past the third round in three of the last four seasons.

"Our ambition is important for us and our fans. They want to see our club doing a fantastic run in the FA Cup," he said.

"You have to have respect for the opponents you play but we will play with an XI which has 100 per cent condition to win the match.

"It (the Cup) is really important for us as a club. I know our fans look to this competition."
