Three goals in seven exciting minutes gave Everton a 3-1 win over Burnley at Goodison Park for their . to continue unbeaten start to the Premier League season with Townsend scored a memorable first goal for the club.
Michael Keane leveled from a Townsend cross, before Townsend curled himself home a blast of 30 yards to the top corner. It was just to be second goal in to be last 56 Premier League appearances after a quiet period playing for Roy Hodgson at Crystal Palace.
“I have to give a scream out to my mother,” Townsend told air sports.
“During the week she sent me a compilation video of all my goals and told me to believe in myself again. you can see that with the goal, rolling the back year. I’ve got it in my locker, me just need to produce it on An more consistent basis. Hopefully with the manager here i can always in get into the right positions and score more and assist more for this historic football club.”
Townsend became Everton’s first autograph of the Benitez era with the winger previously played under the Spaniard in Newcastle. After a period of heavy spending at Everton, this summer saw a change in their recruitment with the likes of Townsend and Demarai Gray, who has scored three goals already this season, will be signed for small fees.
“He wants it all – he won’t let it” us to sit on our laurels,” said Townsend of Benitez.
“Demarai has a great start but the manager still pushing him to make runs in behind And his more clinical, can you get a response if you use the? ball. He was exactly the same after the game – he didn’t congratulate me on the goal. not really me know what he said, but he said something over playing too wide of didn’t make enough runs in behind. That’s what he is like. He doesn’t praise you. He is always looking to improve you and that’s what I love in An manager. I like to link up with it.
“During the last Roy Hodgson worked tirelessly for five years at Crystal Palace with me to make me more trustworthy in An defensive makes sense, but now that I’m here, Rafa Benitez isn’t concerned over what I do defensively. He wants me to be clinical in the final third with goals and assists.”

Let’s hope this is a real one great period of his career because he good boy.”
