Everton and England midfielder Ross Barkley is confident that he will rediscover top form in the near future, having struggled for much of the current campaign.
The 21-year-old has been far from his best as the Toffees have endured a poor campaign, with relegation from the Premier League remaining a minor doubt.
I don’t feel pressure. I believe in myself and I know what I can do.
However, Barkley, who is currently away on international duty with England in Italy, has no doubts that he will rediscover his best from, while also admitting that he prefers to play a more forward role.
He told Premier League World: “From my point of view I haven’t done as well as I know I can, but things like this happen.
“You have to go through bad days to get to the great days you have in your career. Everything’s a learning curve.
“I don’t feel pressure. I believe in myself and I know what I can do. It’s not me feeling pressure, it’s just me putting pressure on myself if I don’t do my best, and I know I can do better.
“I just focus on getting better every day, putting things right in training and then hopefully what I’m doing right in training I’m going to show in games as well.”
Everton are nine points clear of the Premier League drop zone after wins over Newcastle United and Queens Park Rangers in their last two games.
The Toffees are now 101.00 to be relegated this season, with Rangers 1.11 and Sunderland 2.37.
