Everton’s ginger Braveheart Davie Moyes still reckons that his boys can overtake Liverpool and bag fourth place for themselves – despite the fact that Liverpool have a veritable cakewalk of a run-in – with Everton still having to play Chelsea and Arsenal.
Although Rafa’s men got a surprise point against Arsenal at the Emirates, Everton beat Derby 1-0 to stay just three points behind (technically four points given Everton’s rancid goal difference).
“We are optimistic, we believe we can still catch Liverpool.
“We are having to push them towards the end of the season, to keep them going. It has been a long, hard campaign.
“We can put pressure on Liverpool, and if we do that and win at Birmingham next weekend it will be our highest points tally in the Premier League, that is the first objective.”
Is Moyes in cloud cuckoo land – or do the Toffees have a realistic chance?
