Everton boss David Moyes has no intention of easing up as the Toffees recorded their second win of the festive season with a 2-1 win against Wigan at Goodison Park.
It kept them joint fourth in the table, just two points behind third-placed Chelsea, their opponents on Sunday.
Moyes said: "Over the Christmas period you are just trying to win the games and come out of the other end of it in no worse a position.
"We have six points from the two games and we might have settled for that at the start but we have now got another couple of games, Chelsea at home and then Newcastle away, and then you are probably talking about the Christmas period being over.
"We will try to take some points from them and keep moving up."
