Everton fullback Leighton Baines says futures are on the line at Goodison Park.
Everton were dumped out of the Europa League on Thursday by Dynamo Kiev.
"You have got your own personal standards," said Baines. "In the last few seasons, we have been striving for something towards the end. This is now a bit different. We have got some important games coming up and we are in a position we don't want to be in.
"The sooner we get a couple of wins on the board, the better. But it is about your own personal standards. The boys have got to keep their standards up, you know? With the way things have been going, you are playing for your future in some respects. That is a useful way of looking at it."
