Seamus Coleman and Roberto Martinez both discuss Everton’s final three matches of the season in Tuesday’s papers.
Coleman has told the Daily Mirror and Daily Mail that the Blues have the legs to keep up with Arsenal.
The Gunners currently hold a one point advantage over Everton and the Republic of Ireland right-back says the Toffees will ‘keep at it’ and hope to ‘sneak in’ and secure the final Champions League qualification position.
Martinez, however, admits to the Liverpool Echo that Everton face a difficult run-in. The Blues have to play matches against Southampton, Manchester City and Hull City, and the manager says ‘you couldn’t pick three worse games’.
Also in the Echo, Ian Snodin has backed Antolin Alcaraz to shine if Sylvain Distin is forced to spend time on the sidelines through injury.
