Martinez not thinking of doing Liverpool any favours

Everton boss Roberto Martinez insists Everton will be 100% focused on beating Manchester City in his side’s next game, but is not thinking about any of the teams above him other than Arsenal FC.

Everton still have a mathematical chance of finishing in the final Champions League position, although after two recent losses, the odds are stacked against his side.  An Everton win or draw against the Sky Blues will leave the title destiny back in Liverpool’s hands but Martinez sought to play down the significance of such an event.

“Helping other teams is not the way we do things,” said Martinez. “We focus on trying to win for ourselves.”

“It is going to be a phenomenal test and we want to finish really strong at home,” added the Spaniard.

Arsenal are currently four points clear of Everton, so while a Champions League place is likely beyond his team, he is still very much focused on securing a Europa League spot  for next year’s campaign with Tottenham breathing down their necks.

He finished by saying, “I always felt the relationship between the two clubs [Everton and Liverpool] in the city has had incredible chapters and this would be another fascinating chapter.

“There is no doubt of our integrity – we want to win every game we go into. We are looking at ourselves because these are precious points. We can’t afford not to give everything we have.
