Everton has quietly been hanging around the top of the table and in contention. Right now they sit in fifth place with 34 points, but getting another three won’t be easy on Sunday when they host Southampton. This squad currently sits in ninth place with 27 points, but has been playing well this season.
“It is a very important moment of the season but we can only be encouraged and excited with the first half of the season,” Everton manager Roberto Martinez said, via ESPN FC.
“The players have shown their potential and we can’t wait to carry on developing that until the end of the season.
“We are fortunate with the fans we have, recognising and applauding the efforts of the players. That’s what gives you extra points over the course of the season and it couldn’t give me more excitement looking forward to the second half of the season.”
