Everton are one of the few teams that have never been relegated from England’s top division and Pickford warned that the club can’t repeat the same mistakes next season. He said; ‘We should never have been in that position. We lost a lot of games that we shouldn’t have ever lost, or we had chances where we should have taken points from more games.  ‘It was our own fault that we ended up in that position. But it does show the type of characters we are to get out of that situation. We need to knuckle down and work hard on the training pitch.’
