Mikel is optimistic of success on all three fronts - the FA Cup, Europa League and a top four finish.
"We have to keep going and believing in what we can do," he said. "The battle for the top four has always been tough. We knew it was going to be tough, coming to the business end of the season.
"Hopefully if we could get a piece of silverware this season we will be very pleased with ourselves.
"We have to keep going and playing the way we are playing."
