Howard: Everton up for the fight

Everton goalkeeper Tim Howard has said that his side will not feel the pressure as they battle for fourth spot in the Premier League, according to Sky Sports.

The Toffees climbed above Arsenal and into the final Champions League spot after a 1-0 win against Sunderland on Saturday.


A scrappy game and a Wes Brown own goal were enough to secure the three points for Everton at the Stadium of Light and Howard believe that the game showed that his side have what it takes.


"You don't mind it being a bit scrappy every now and then because you almost want the confirmation that we've got it in us," said Howard.


"We know we can play good football but we never want to get away from that Everton fighting spirit, that ability to dig in. Games like this remind us that's still in us which is important.


"Even at 1-0 down they kept coming because they had a lot to fight for and it was a really tough game."


The Merseyside club now sit two points above Arsenal and have it in their own hands to secure Champions League football with just five games remaining.


"The manager drilled into us that it would be tough," added the goalkeeper. "Now we can count them on one hand. We're going to tick the games off.


"We're in a good mental state. We're performing well. We feel fluid and there's a good energy in the dressing room. We won't feel pressure on our back from Arsenal.


"Anything can happen. There are so many 'ifs' and 'buts' but if we keep fighting we'll finish strong so hopefully that can continue."
