Victor Anichebe reckons Everton need to refocus on the basics after a run of poor league results plus a 3-0 FA Cup quarter-final defeat to Wigan.

The Nigerian told the Liverpool Echo: "We need to get back to the good things that Everton do - chase the ball hard, work hard and hopefully get the result.

"I don't even think we should be looking at how many games we need to be winning. If you look at how many games you need to win you might get caught up in some stuff.

"People are talking about our rivalry with Liverpool but we should just concentrate on ourselves and take every game as it comes. Hopefully we can look back at the end of the season and say we've had a great season."
