New signings have lifted Everton, Osman says

"It’s about how quickly now we can all understand what the new manager wants and how he wants us to play. That’s different from being comfortable on the ball. We need to be comfortable in the mind as well."

Everton continue their build-up to the new campaign with a friendly against Blackburn Rovers on Saturday, before then heading to the United States to take part in the Guinness Champions Cup, which begins on July 31.
