James McCarthy insists Everton will continue to apply pressure on Arsenal in the hope that the Gunners will falter in the race for Champions League football.

With both the Blues and Arsenal winning at the weekend, the gap between the two teams remains at just one point as the Premier League season draws nearer to its close.

And McCarthy says Everton will concentrate on getting maximum points from their final three games, which sees Martinez’s side make trips to Southampton and Hull City either side of a final season appearance in front of the Goodison Park crowd against title-chasing Manchester City.

He told evertontv: “We wanted to get three points on the board and try to keep the pressure on Arsenal.

“I think there's still plenty of twists and turns to come and you never know. We'll look after ourselves and see what it brings at the end of the season.”

It was back in 2010 when Everton last played in Europe and the Toffees only need a point from the match at Southampton this weekend to guarantee continental football again next season.

McCarthy continued: “It is a big incentive and we'll give it our best shot.

“We want to get three points on the board and keep up the pressure on Arsenal. We want to try to get European football back at Goodison.”
