Martinez says Everton players have bottle to chase top four finish

Everton boss Roberto Martinez says his players will stay grounded after an impressive win at Newcastle United.

Everton's fine victory over the Magpies has offered increased hopes of dining with Europe's elite next season, Martinez says his players are not getting carried away.

He told evertontv: "[The three points] are really important but that's not the end of the season.

"We've been working really hard for the last 10 months and you can see the team is ready to give everything in every game and make every single Evertonian proud.

"We'll see how many points that gives us.

"Now we need to refresh and regenerate for Fulham. It'll be a completely different game but we'll have to bring the same momentum and intensity that we showed [at Newcastle]."
