The £30m signing made his debut for Everton in the Merseyside derby against Liverpool at the weekend, coming on as a first-half substitute.


Godfrey, who is a natural central defender, was deployed at right-back after Seamus Coleman was forced off the pitch due to an injury in the first half and helped the side to a 2-2 draw.



Reflecting on his Everton debut, the 22-year-old has admitted that playing at right-back felt a bit different to him although he was focused on helping the team get at least a point.


Godfrey went on to stress his desire to keep learning and become a better player at Everton, where he has the opportunity to work under the management of Carlo Ancelotti.



Getting forward is a bit different for me but I just wanted to give everything to every part of the role“, Godfrey told Everton’s official site.


I’ve not played right-back very often but I wanted to do my best… to have a positive affect on the game and help the lads get three points, or one point minimum.



Mr Ancelotti is a great manager and it is incredible to have the opportunity to work under him.


I have always said I am like a sponge, I want to work hard and learn and I will soak up every bit of information I can.


Having made his Everton debut in the Merseyside derby, Godfrey will be now looking to force his way into the starting eleven, possibly in his preferred centre-back position.
