Sean Dyche has branded all of Everton’s remaining 12 Premier League fixtures as ‘must wins.’

The Toffees currently sit in the bottom three on goal difference and have the joint-least victories (5) in the league this season.

Everton’s most recent outing came last Sunday where the Blue’s conceded a goal late on to take a solitary point from a 2-2 draw at Nottingham Forest.

Dyche’s men will welcome an in form Brentford side to Goodison Park on Saturday, who are unbeaten in their last 12 league games.

Speaking to the media ahead of Saturday’s clash, Dyche reiterated the need to make picking up three points a more regular occurrence for the Toffees.

He said: “Every game is a must win. That’s how you should play football.

“In pre-season games, you should be thinking, ‘I need to get myself in that winning feeling’.

“Every game should be a big game, no matter what game you’re playing in.”

The Everton boss further recognised fans’ frustration at the situation his side are in. The Blues have only collected two wins from their last 14 league games, though both of these victories have come at Goodison following Dyche’s arrival.

“Part of being a footballer is understanding that (fans frustration),” said Dyche.

“They’re all big games, for me, it was normalising that. My mentality is every time I go out there that’s a big game and it’s important.

“Every day counts, every game counts.”

Despite the Toffees’ inconsistent form of late, Dyche has been impressed with his team’s recent performances.

“Particularly in the first half we were very good (against Nottingham Forest). Conceded a mistake and a soft one against Villa, I thought it was a pretty thorough performance.

“You win because you get everything right all the way through a 90-minute match. We’re now beginning to look more effective in different ways”.

The Everton manager awarded high praise to this weekend’s opponents. The Bees haven’t lost a Premier League fixture since October 2022.

“They’ve proven they’re a good outfit. I like what he’s done (Thomas Frank),” said Dyche.

“Every team in the Premier League is there for a reason. He’ll (Frank) know he’ll have to be ready and his team will have to be ready.”

Dyche also established the few players returning back to full fitness. Vitalii Mykolenko trained yesterday and could be in tomorrow’s squad following an illness. Though Dyche admitted Nathan Patterson and Dominic Calvert-Lewin are still regaining match fitness.

Everton vs Brentford kicks off tomorrow at Goodison Park at 15:00 (GMT).
