Everton boss Roberto Martinez is delighted with their current home record.

Everton have not lost at home in the competition in almost a year, their last defeat coming against Chelsea on December 30, 2012.

Martinez said: "I don't think that is a stat we want to be focusing on. Obviously we want to win every game we go into.

"The reality is if you get an award or a trophy for doing that, we would consider that, but what we want is to finish as high as we can at the end of the season, and the home form is going to be vital for that.

"It is something special at Goodison. The fans and the players have a real unity that helps you to get through adversity and disappointment.

"That has been a real advantage and we don't want that to change."
