Marouane Fellaini insisted Everton will keep fighting until the very end of the season.

The Blues saw their hopes of securing Champions League football dented with Saturday's 1-0 defeat at Sunderland, but remain in the running for at least a fifth-place finish.

That would be enough to seal a spot in next term's Europa League and midfielder Fellaini is seeking maximum points from the remaining fixtures.

He told evertontv: "We have four more games and we must keep going and try to win. It's difficult now but if we try, we will see at the end of the season.

"We have four more big games - two at home and two away. We will try to win those two at home and we will see where we are after Liverpool and Chelsea."

The Belgian admitted the Toffees were second best at the Stadium of Light and highlighted the renewed belief in the Black Cats following Paolo Di Canio's arrival as manager.

"It was a very difficult game for us," he reflected.

"It was disappointing for the team and the staff. There weren't a lot of chances today. Everybody was perhaps a little bit tired.

"Sunderland were playing at home, for a new manager in his first game here. They had a lot of energy today.

"It was a bad goal to concede with the mistake, but football is like this. When you concede a mistake, it's difficult to win the game.

With Fellaini deployed in a deep role in the middle of the park, there was also a need for the 25-year-old to help his teammates in attack as they tried to chase the game in the second half.

"I tried to be everywhere but I played more defensive today," he added. "That was my role and I like to play there. I tried but they had two strikers and wingers - I helped a little bit but not a lot."

Victor TayKeep on going and see where it take us, Felli.

Tony BowlerThe Spurs game done us I think, a few minutes from a great result. Just think we needed a few players in january, just hope we keep Felli and add a few in the summer.
