Victor Anichebe says the Everton squad will 'come back fighting' against Manchester City as they bid to bounce back from Saturday's FA Cup exit.

Anichebe was a second half substitute against Wigan and explained that the focus is now solely on producing a positive result against Manchester City this weekend to go some way to making amends for Saturday’s reverse.

"When you have had a down, you have to come back fighting. That is what we are going to look to do,” he told evertontv.

“The weekend wasn't a good weekend for us. It's a good one to forget but it's a good one to remember as well because of the things that didn't really go for us. Hopefully we can have a good week and bounce back at the weekend.”

A win over Roberto Mancini’s side in the weekend’s early kick-off would see Everton move into fifth position ahead of Arsenal’s trip to Swansea and Liverpool’s visit to Southampton.

Anichebe added: "It will be great if the fans can get behind us and spur us on. Hopefully we can do good by them, work as hard as possible and get the result.”

With 10 games remaining Anichebe is hoping to end the campaign in positive fashion, both personally and for Everton as a whole.

"I am looking to get as many games as possible, play as well as I can and hopefully the team will do as well as possible as well."
