Midfielder Gareth Barry insists Everton can set their sights on the Champions League – if they take big points from their next four games.

Roberto Martinez's men go into today's visit of Fulham fifth in the Barclays Premier League standings and just two points off second-placed Liverpool.

And Barry says the result against the Cottagers - plus those against Swansea, Sunderland and Southampton - will go a long way to determining how high the Blues can aim.

"We've got four games until the half way stage and if you're in and around it then, there's no reason why you can't compete right through to mid-May," he said.  

"The points are coming with good performances - it's not like we're just sneaking results and not playing the right type of football.

"The manager's really stamping his authority about the way he wants us to play and that's being shown on the pitch.

"We set our targets high and there's no reason why we can't be challenging for that top four.

"Obviously before the season that would have been a massive target but the longer the season's gone on and the more games we've played, we're giving ourselves every chance."

If you are heading to the game today, get there early to enjoy our winter wonderland. And if you haven;t got your ticket you can buy before the game - leave plenty of time though.
