Everton manager Benitez not worried about relegation battle

Everton manager Rafa Benitez insists he is not worried about a relegation battle.

The Toffees were thrashed 4-1 at home by local rivals Liverpool on Wednesday.

They are now only five points above the bottom three, but Benitez is not concerned about fighting for survival.

Asked if he was worried about a relegation battle, the Spaniard said: "No. I still have confidence the team will do well. We need to bring players back and we will be as strong as we were at the beginning.

"We need to learn we cannot make these types of mistakes."
