The final Everton programme of the season has goalkeeper Tim Howard reflecting back on an exciting 10 months in Roberto Martinez’s first campaign in charge.

The American shot-stopper also praises the impact of young defender John Stones and assesses the recent defeat at St Mary's, as well as the victory over Manchester United last time out in L4.

He also says the Blues will be going all out to sign off in front of the Goodison Park faithful by adding to an already Club record haul of 13 Premier League home wins this term.

“We’ll have been focused on Manchester City from first thing Monday morning," says Howard. "Mathematically we still have a chance and we’ve got six points to play for. With Manchester City coming to our place, they are going to have everything to fight for. It will be exciting.

“It will be tough for us but we feel like when we cross that line and stand toe-to-toe with any team, we have as good a shot as any to win the game.”

Elsewhere in the issue, former Blues youngster Shkodran Mustafi tells us how he is getting on in Serie A, Michael Ball picks his ‘Us & Them XI’ and Pat Nevin salutes the tactical nouse of his former Motherwell colleague Roberto Martinez.

There is the usual views from the dressing room from the gaffer himself and skipper Phil Jagielka, Seamus Coleman reflects on the win over Manchester United and earning a place in the PFA Team of the Year and Leon Osman tells how he kicked off his testimonial year with a charity golf day.
