I just feel for Jean-Philippe Gbamin. As soon as he gets a glimmer of light, it's taken away from him again.

If the news is true over what's happened to him, he's having no luck whatsoever.

I know Carlo Ancelotti said he could be important for Everton between now and the end of the season but that's because of injuries we've got elsewhere - trying to force him into contention.

We've got eight games left of the campaign now, but again it's another season written off for him. It would have been nice for him to get a run of games in a Blue shirt and a chance for the fans to see his quality.

Being injured, I know it's mentally so hard. Getting that opportunity to come on the pitch and play a few minutes, you think you're really back.

You know you need to play catch-up with your teammates around you, but you'll be showing that with eagerness in training to be involved in the starting 11.

He's done that, he's done all the hard work to get himself back on the pitch and all he needed was game time to get his rhythm and focus.

The heart bleeds for him. It'd be so difficult in normal times, in my day it was so difficult, but with the situation right now it's going to be even worse.

I'm sure the club, like they have done in the past, are going to take care of him and make sure he's in the best way possible.

For him personally it must be heart-breaking. He'll have been wanting to play maybe half a dozen games until the end of the season and show why he was brought to the football club, and be in the manager's eye for next season.

Now it's all been taken away, it's going to be a hard pill to swallow for him.

We know Spurs' danger men

We moan and groan about Everton's setup, but there are a lot of other clubs in and around us who aren't hitting their respective targets either.

Tottenham are one of those, but we know what their danger is - it's Harry Kane and Heung-Min Son.

We've got to be at the top of our game to stop them, but also work out how we're going to score goals as well.

Who's going to be the one to create the opportunities for us to score? Early on in the season we were getting the reward for the few chances we were creating, Dominic Calvert-Lewin was on fire so we didn't need to create much.

Against top teams like Tottenham, who have got something to chase, we need to start thinking about ourselves.

We know how good Spurs can be, we played them earlier on in the season and it was a great result. But we need to be able to hold our own a little bit.

Harry Kane makes things so simple. He holds up the play really well, and give him half a yard and he's getting a shot on target. We know their danger players.

Must-read Everton FC news

My question to the Everton players is, can they show what they're all about?

We're against a good quality side, who aren't going through the best run of form, but we've got to have belief in ourselves to come back and get all three points - don't feel sorry for them.

In the past I've questioned the side saying that we're too nice on the pitch. That anger of not winning football games, that's what we want to see from this group of players.

Are they happy to draw? Demand more from each other from now until the end of the season.

Hopefully there's a few players that will come back, but whoever is on the pitch need to come together as a unit to demand a lot from each other.

That's what the fans demand from this set of players.
