McCarthy had an assist to Aaron Lennon in the 1-1 draw to Swansea City Saturday.

McCarthy is a more holding position midfielder and only has a goal and an assist on 12 shots in 22 games this season. He still is one of the leaders on the team and is more valuable for the little things he does. The young Scot will continue to start for Everton against Burnley next Saturday.

McCarthy had a goal and five clearances in the 3-0 win over Newcastle Sunday.

McCarthy was great Sunday as he not only led the team in passing accuracy at 90%, but scored a goal and cleared a ball off the line to save the elusive clean sheet. McCarthy called the team out two weeks ago and this performance solidifies his status as one of the teams leaders and shows how important he is to the team. Look for him to start next Sunday when Everton take on QPR.

McCarthy admitted that Everton's performance has not been good enough this season and the team needs to address their weak spots, reports the Daily Mail.

Everton are six points above the relegation positions in the table, and haven't been able to emulate the form they showed at home last season. The team has won just once in the last 10 Premier League matches, and McCarthy said the players need to address some issues to move up the order.
