Kevin Campbell feels Everton have started to turn a corner

Everton Goodison

Former Everton striker Kevin Campbell says his old side are heading in the right direction.

Former Everton striker Kevin Campbell told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast Show for talkSPORT that he feels his old side have started to turn a corner.

Everton take on Swiss side Young Boys in the Europa League later today as they look to create some momentum heading into the weekend game against Leicester in the Premier League.

“Everton are starting to turn a corner. Their performances in the Europa League during the first half of the season have been good, but their league form suffered,” said Campbell.

"They’re addressing that now and they’ll come good in the last third of the season. When you’re starting to build confidence there’s some very winnable games coming up."

Everton’s defeat to Chelsea in their last game is the only game they have lost in their last seven matches.

Roberto Martinez deserves some credit for getting a bit of confidence back into the team ahead of a very important final few months of the season.

The next challenge for Everton is to turn draws into wins, because they have struggled to get over the line in recent games; five of the last seven games have ended in draws for the club.

A winning mentality will further improve the confidence and momentum in the team ahead of more important games to come over the rest of the campaign.

Everton play the return game against Young Boys after this weekend and then a game against Arsenal, which will be difficult.

However, if the Toffees can make it through those games with some confidence in tact, matches against Stoke, Newcastle and QPR represent a great chance for the club to improve their standing on the Premier League table.
