Everton defender Phil Jagielka has insisted the club can still secure Champions League football next season according to Sky Sports.

The centre-back was part of the Everton team that secured a 2-2 draw with top four rivals Tottenham during the weekend.

The Toffees were unlucky not to secure a win after a header from Jagielka and stunning goal from Belgian midfielder Kevin Mirallas saw David Moyes’ men overturn an early goal from Manu Adebayor.

But Gylfi Sigurdsson’s 87th minute equaliser dashed Everton hopes of a shock victory leaving them six points behind fourth placed Tottenham with seven games left to play.

Everton could reduce that gap to just three points though should they win their game in hand on Tottenham.

Jagielka insisted Everton would not give up while they still remained in contention for a top four finish.

Everton started the season in blistering form but have struggled to maintain that following the turn of the year. The team have improved their performances in recent weeks but Jagielka admits they are relying on favours from the teams around them.

Everton will be hoping a top four finish could persuade manager David Moyes to extend his contract which is set to expire at the end of the current campaign.
