Gerard Deulofeu enjoys linking-up with Romelu Lukaku and Ross Barkley at Everton

Everton Goodison 2

Gerard Deulofeu, Romelu Lukaku and Ross Barkley all started in Everton's 2-1 defeat to Arsenal at the weekend.

Gerard Deulofeu has told the Liverpool Echo that he loves linking up with Everton teammates Romelu Lukaku and Ross Barkley. 

Deulofeu started the Toffees' latest match against Arsenal, which they lost 2-1, alongside Lukaku and Barkley, and he enjoyed the experience. 

However, the Spanish winger insists that he cannot take too much pleasure from his own performances, when Everton are unable to pick up a victory. 

“I enjoy playing with Ross [Barkley] and Rom [Lukaku] and was pleased to get an assist but if the team don’t win my assist is no good.

“Two crosses and one set piece and we concede too easily. It was a frustrating outcome for us. We’re so disappointed.”

Everton could have grabbed a result in the match against Arsenal, had they been more clinical in-front of goal. 

The Toffees actually put in a spirited display against the Gunners, but they were unable to get any reward for their performance, after they missed a series of opportunities late on.

Deulofeu was actually guilty of spurning Everton's best chance to equalise, when his close-range shot was saved by Petr Cech late on.

The defeat leaves Everton in 11th place in the Premier League table, and they are now winless in their last their last three matches.
