League Form Pleases Martinez

Boss keen to maintain unbeaten Premier League record.

League Form Pleases Martinez

Roberto Martinez is keen to extend Everton's record as the only unbeaten side in the Premier League.

The Blues exited the Capital One Cup at Fulham in midweek but their 3-2 win over West Ham at Upton Park last Saturday, coupled with Southampton's victory at Anfield, means Martinez's men are now the last remaining side in the top flight yet to be beaten.

But whilst the manager is pleased with the tag, he insists continuing to pick up victories is the key.

He said: "It is a fantastic label to have but it is something we will have to work really hard to extend.

"It is a beautiful label to have but in September you don't win anything. What we need to do is work harder because it is only beautiful if you can keep it until May because otherwise one day it will become a negative."

The victories over Chelsea and West Ham have seen the Blues climb into the top six of the table but there remains a degree of frustration.

He added: "It is fair to say that we felt hard done by with only getting three points from our first three games. But back to back wins from two difficult games is great and also the manner in which we have done it.

"I don't think we have been exceptional in terms of what we have been doing on the ball but we have defended extremely well, restricted West Ham to very, very little and when we went behind, managed to come back from behind twice which shows you the mentality, character and strength in the squad.

"We have many options in the squad, nobody can take their place for granted and that is very exciting moving forward."
