Despite their 2-0 defeat at Southampton, Everton boss Roberto Martinez has insisted that his side can still finish in the top four this season. Antolin Alcaraz and Seamus Coleman both scored own goals in the first half of the game to seal the Toffees fate. The loss dents Everton’s charge at securing Champions League football as a win for Arsenal on Monday will take them 4 points clear.
Martinez remains optimistic however saying “From our point of view, it doesn’t change at all,” he told BT Sport. “We have had eight wins in 10 games – it’s a phenomenal return. We go into the next two games and hope to get maximum points, all we’re looking for is to get the maximum points and we’ll see where that leaves us”. Someone tell Martinez no one drags the 4th spot with Wenger, he’s a veteran.
