Distin: Whole team to blame

13 December 2010 12:30
Sylvain Distin remains confident that an end to Everton's poor run of results is just around the corner. The Toffees have won only three of their opening 17 Barclays Premier League matches and sit 15th in the table after Saturday's goalless draw with Wigan. Most of the attention has focused on Everton's struggles in front of goal, but Distin insists it is a case of collective responsibility. "It is a team game," he told the Daily Post. "I am not going to start blaming anyone because we have made mistakes at the back in some games where we have scored and that has cost us points. It is not individuals, but the whole team. "I am not worried because I think we created a lot of chances. If we hadn't created the chances, then maybe it would be difficult, but we create them so it is about fine tuning - the last pass, the last shot - but the most important thing is creating the chances. "I have been in the game long enough to know that one goal can change everything. It is a bad run. That's football, you have to deal with that, but we can change that next week."
