Howard bullish over Everton finishing in top four
He told Sky Sports News HD: "I think we've always been a dark horse, we've always been the outsider in that race, and we still are.
"If we put a few moments of magic together, if we can win out, which is never easy with the games that we have, and we can get some help in and around us, anything is possible."
Howard added: "All the talk has been about how Suarez has carried them, maybe rightfully so, but boy have they made a statement and shown everybody that they also can find goals from other places.
"They are a threat, we know that, and I think we'll have mapped out a plan to try and beat them come Sunday."
