We all must contribute goals, says Evans

Lee Evans is calling for the Blades to be more clinical at both ends of the pitch, whilst targeting goals from a variety of sources.

Speaking ahead of Tuesday trip to Middlesbrough, the midfielder hopes others can weigh in with their fair share of goals this term, to take the pressure of the strikers.

He remarked: "Billy and Leon did unbelievably well last season in terms of the goals they scored and it's something we've discussed as a group.

"We need to score goals from different areas and not just midfield. We need goals like George popped up with from wing-back and our 'number 10' and also from the defenders at set-pieces.

"If the strikers can have half the season they had last season and we add a few from elsewhere we should go pretty well.

"We missed a couple of chances to put Swansea to bed at the weekend, but we do create chances and the style of football we play is appealing."

Meanwhile, Evans is tipping some special moments from Liverpool loanee and fellow Welshman Ben Woodburn.

Evans added: "Ben can be as good as he wants to be really, similar to David Brooks, because both have an unbelievable amount of talent.

"The sky is the limit for the boy, but we have to be patient, he is only 18, although he has played for Liverpool and Wales so isn't afraid of the big stage."
