Howard bullish over Everton finishing in top four

Everton keeper Tim Howard believes a top-four finish will require results from elsewhere to go the Toffees way.

Everton keeper Tim Howard believes a top-four finish will require results from elsewhere to go the Toffees way.

David Moyes' men sit sixth - just five points adrift of fourth-placed Arsenal.

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."

The next game for Howard and Everton is a derby date with Merseyside rivals Liverpool on Sunday.

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."
