Tom Davies is revelling in his continued education in Everton's first team, saying that he will play wherever he is asked to by Ronald Koeman.

The Toffees' starlet was back in his more familiar central-midfield role in yesterday's friendly against Sevilla at Goodison Park after being deployed in an experimental role as a wing-back in the Europa League second leg in Ružomberok last Thursday.

He laid on the opening goal against the Spaniard's with a perceptive pass to Sandro Ramirez who executed an impressive finish to score his first goal in Everton colours.

Davies he feels most at home in the middle but isn't averse to playing anywhere for his boyhood club. “It can't do me any harm if I can play in different positions,” the teenager told evertontv. “Playing wing-back was different to playing in midfield. It was tough in midweek and it was another test being back in the middle today. Wherever I'm asked to play, I'm happy to do the job.

“I enjoy playing in midfield mainly but, of course, I'm happy to play at full-back if I'm asked. It's just a privilege to be on the pitch playing for Everton. Anywhere the manager wants me to play, I'll do it.”

“We came out of the blocks well," Davies continued in reference to the 2-2 draw with Sevilla. "I spotted Sandro coming in from the wing - it was a good run by him and I managed to find him. I'm made up for him to score, it's a great way to start.

“It was a tough game, but it was the final game of pre-season and that's what you need. I'm sure we'll recover well now, get some more good sessions in and be ready for the first Premier League game of the season.”
