Moyes: Everton can meet top 4 challenge

Everton boss Dave Moyes is determined to crack the top four this season after their 2-0 victory over West Ham.

He said: "That is the kind of fighting talk I quite enjoy. It is nearly motivation to me. I think 'I'll show you'.

"It was done two years ago. People say 'can we break into the top four'?

"The truth is that has already happened. There are a few teams making a fist of it. People said we couldn't break in and when we did people said it was a blip. We have to do it again.

"This is probably the best squad we have had and they are probably playing the best but they still have to beat the squad that finishes fourth two seasons ago and that will take some doing."

But Moyes also believes the strength of the Premier League means a top-half finish would not be an insignificant achievement.

"I think it will be hard to finish in the top 10 with the likes of Manchester City, Aston Villa, Portsmouth and Blackburn."
