EXTRA TIME: 'We’ve been jumping league positions' - cheeky Bolasie describes Everton’s rise

The Toffees boss has called for understanding from the fans with the DR Congo international who recently returned from a long injury layoff

Yannick Bolasie is quite impressed with Everton’s leap in the English Premier League table after their 1-0 defeat of Newcastle United on Wednesday.

Wayne Rooney’s 27th minute was enough for Sam Allardyce’s men to move to the top half of the log and levelled on points with ninth-placed Watford – 22 points from 17 games.

Although he is yet to feature for the first team since he suffered a knee injury against Manchester United in December 2016, Bolasie shared a clip from one of his training sessions to describe how the Goodison Park outfit have been 'jumping' in the English top-flight standings recently.
