Sean Dyche in a recent Everton admission compares with Pep Guardiola’s Man City

Manchester City

Sean Dyche used Guardiola’s Man City as an illustration to demonstrate how even the best teams require reinforcements. It is crucial to create competition for spots in the first squad rather than depending solely on the development of the current generation of understudies.

Sean Dyche acknowledged that in order to solve their current scoring drought, his team must embrace a collective mentality of “I will score today”. Dyche also admitted the club’s reality, which is that they won’t always be able to pay top dollar for players.

On August 29, Sean Dyche told the Liverpool Echo in a statement:

“Pep Guardiola won everything last year. Look at how many players he signed because he knows in a competition it’s important. He develops teams and players but guess what, he still brings players even when he’s winning everything. That’s the nature of the job.”

Sean Dyche wants his player’s to compete for places in the starting Line-Up

The Everton manager want’s to have a lot of competition for starting positions which is essential for reliable performances. A player will be more motivated to succeed if he is aware that a poor performance might drop him from the team. It is helpful to know that you can replace a player who is performing poorly with a different player.

Due to a lack of depth up front and on the flanks against Wolves, Sean Dyche was forced to start teenager Lewis Dobbin. Lewis Dobbin spent last season on loan with League One’s Derby County. While Dobbin is by no means a horrible choice, it illustrates the squad’s lack of experience.

The current Everton team is also hindered because of injuries. Just four important names are absent from the current squad: Jack Harrison, Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Dwight McNeil, and Alex Iwobi. Upon their return, the team will see a noticeable improvement.
