Gylfi Sigurdsson has credited Marco Silva with bringing a feel-good factor to Everton.

Toffees manager Silva has guided the club to seventh in the Premier League table since his summer appointment.

The Portuguese welcomes former side Watford to Goodison Park on Monday evening.

Iceland international Sigurdsson feels Everton are going in the right direction under their new coach.

"I think if you ask any of the players, they are enjoying working with the new manager," the 29-year-old told the club website.

"He wants us to play attacking football, to work hard without the ball and press.

"There is a good understanding within the players."
