"This is the best we've played in my time here," the Toffees manager said.
"I couldn't say yet if it's the best team because the side that finished fourth (2004-05) and got into the Champions League were very consistent, resistant and ground out results.
"This team has an awful lot of attacking options. We can score and create chances.
"I hope we're still pushing for top four at the end of the season, I don't know if we will be because of the quality you need to be there."
