Everton boss Roberto Martinez retains hope of a top four finish.
He insists he â€śdoesnâ€™t careâ€ť whether outsiders doubt his teamâ€™s ability to claw back nine points on current fourth-placed side Manchester City.
Martinez said: "The reality is we want to be demanding of each other - challenging for the top four and against anyone. If itâ€™s realistic or not I donâ€™t really care.
â€śIâ€™ll never hide from the desire of wanting to be successful because weâ€™ve got a team with the potential to do that.
â€śExperience in big games is a big part of becoming a winning team. Thatâ€™s normal. Away at Arsenal it went down to small margins and key moments in the game.
â€śWeâ€™re not far away from where we should be, but itâ€™s just about developing that experience of knowing what to expect.
â€śPlaying well is important as a team but in terms of becoming a winning team you need a bit more understanding of what is needed to get those results.â€ť
