With the internationals out of the way the Premier League returns at the weekend, with Everton hosting Stoke City in the Saturday tea time slot.
After the superb victory over the defending Champions prior to the break, Everton will look to build on that win over Manchester City, as the race for the European places hots up.
4th place remains a possibility, even if it is a long shot, with Spurs just six points above the Blues, having played one game more and currently occupying the final Champions League position. Arsenal sit one place above the Toffees in 5th, but that two point gap, could quickly disappear.
Everton assistant manager, Steve Round has led the battle cry. Speaking to evertontv, Round explained how Moyes picked the players up after the terrible cup exit at the hands of Wigan and re-focused attention on the season’s ultimate goal.
“We’ve still got an opportunity to finish in the top four. It might be a distant opportunity, but while it is there we have to go for it.
“That’s been our goal all season and we mustn’t give up on it.”
“He really showed what a top manager he was that week. He led the players and made sure they were picked up.
“We mourned, of course we did, but he picked them up, rattled the cages and said, ‘come on, we’ve got to prove what we’re about at Everton.”
