Everton boss Martinez eager to take Euro form into Premier League

Everton boss Roberto Martinez hopes their Europa League form can be taken into the Premier League.

Everton won 4-1 at Young Boys of Berne on Thursday.

Martinez said: "I think it shows in Europe this season we've been perfect. And when I say perfect, I mean we've been enjoying our football.

"I think we've produced some exciting, attacking play. We've been brave. I think we've showed an incredible character and it's helped young players to learn a lot very quickly, and it's helped the experienced players to show us the direction.

"It highlights that we need to take that into our domestic form. This season, because of very small margins, we haven't been able to get a real momentum, which allows you to have a real enjoyment in the games you go into.

"That's what we're going to use. I do feel we've been very confident in our play in the last few games. Probably Thursday's result will be the final push to really enjoy our football in every game in the league from now until the end of the season, and that's a really important target of ours."
