With six games left and 18 points still left to play for, Everton's quest to finish in the top half of the Premier League returns home for back-to-back home games against relegation-threatened Burnley and Champions League-chasing Manchester United.
Sean Dyche's side are up first as the Clarets bid for a victory that would move them out of an increasingly congested drop zone. They come into the weekend lying second from bottom but, with only one other team in the bottom six in League action this weekend because of the FA Cup, they can strike a psychological blow with a good result at Goodison Park.
Effectively safe from any threat from relegation themselves, Everton are looking upwards at the five-point gap to Stoke in 10th knowing that a continuation of their four-match unbeaten run will give them a chance to bridge it if results fall favourably elsewhere.
Roberto Martinez should be boosted by the return of Romelu Lukaku who has missed the last two matches with a hamstring injury. The Blues' leading scorer has trained well all week and should be passed fully fit to play. Arouna Kone, who has struggled to make an impact in his stead, is the likely man to give way.
Aiden McGeady is also in line again for a recall after recovering from knee and back problems in recent weeks but he will have to dislodge Aaron Lennon from the right wing slot and will also be competing with Kevin Mirallas for a place in the starting XI.
Lennon marked another decent display with his second Everton goal at Swansea last weekend while Mirallas was only given five minutes at the end of the 1-1 draw.
Leon Osman will undergo a late fitness test on the groin strain that forced him off after just half an hour at the Liberty Stadium but his replacement Steven Pienaar is a good bet to play from the start after coming through an hour without suffering any problems from his own various complaints that have sidelined him for much of the campaign.
Elsewhere in the side, while few changes are expected, there could be a recall for Steven Naismith, possibly in place of Ross Barkley. Tony Hibbert, Darron Gibson and Bryan Oviedo are definitely ruled out.
Burnley will be scrapping for their lives but while they held Champions-elect Chelsea to a 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge two months ago and came away from the Etihad Stadium with a 2-2 draw in December, they haven't won away from home since beating Stoke 2-1 back in November.
Their last two fixtures on the road have ended in 2-0 defeats to Southampton and Liverpool and if Everton can click the way they did against Newcastle and the Saints in recent weeks, they should be able to overcome any opposition Dyche's men can provide, however spirited.

Burnley need the points big time and have proven they can mix it with better sides than ourselves so it wouldnÂt really shock me in the least if they came and got all three points tomorrow.
Let's face it, we have had a mini-revival but itÂs been nowhere near convincing; we were poor last week, pretty poor at home to Southampton but possibly caught them on a day they were equally poor, we were hardly convincing at QPR... and, fair enough, the 3-0 win over the Geordies was good but they have been on the beach for weeks now.
I still donÂt think we put in one single performance this season when we have really battered the opposition into submission, a match when we have loads of chances and at the end you actually catch breath and admire the teamÂs performance.
We just havenÂt had one like that all season. ItÂs been a weird season in that aspect: even when we have had bad seasons in the past, thereÂs always been the odd match where we have played totally outstanding in and itÂs had you looking back in regret that you couldnÂt do it more often.
This season though it just simply hasnÂt happened. No big wins against the top sides... no real great performance... it feels like the season is ending before its even started.
5 Posted 17/04/2015 at 09:18:31
It will be a tough match. Burnley have got the right psychology from their manager, even if they don't have the level of ability our squad has.
I always feel a bit funny when we play the "smaller" teams as I really want them to do well and stick two fingers up to the "big" teams but naturally hope we batter them.
I would much rather have a Burnley in the Prem than a Chelsea or Man City!

7 Posted 17/04/2015 at 09:37:07
I get what you mean, I quite hope Burnley stay up really but I want them to lose tomorrow Â– if only because our next home game is probably unwinnable at this moment given the form Manchester United are in.
We could still finish 13th or 14th if we start slacking off again Â– we have seen it too often with Everton this season: Leicester and Hull at home, even last week, we slackened off and yet another individual error cost us the win.
I truly hope next term we cure ourselves of these individual mistakes, itÂs been a woeful symptom that has destroyed our entire season on an almost weekly basis.
8 Posted 17/04/2015 at 09:51:27
We need to use two wingers in support of Rom and IÂd go with Lennon and Pienaar with Naismith starting and Mirallas as an impact sub, (but not just for the last five minutes, Roberto). But then after 56 years watching my team, what do I know when compared with the ÂphenomenalÂ manager we have in charge of team affairs?
9 Posted 17/04/2015 at 09:58:33
ItÂs going to be scrappy, as Colin says, so thereÂs no room for any more mistakes. 2-1 I hope.
10 Posted 17/04/2015 at 10:09:09
Plus, Lennon has proved he can score goals, with two in the last three games. How many has McGeady got since he joined us? One, I think.
11 Posted 17/04/2015 at 10:41:46
You are correct: McGeady has scored just the one, on the opening say at Leicester Â– a peach it was too and whoÂd have thought weÂd be saying in April thatÂs still his only goal?
I actually thought when we signed McGeady he had the look of a player who might have contributed more with goals, didnÂt he hit the post with a cracking effort against Aston Villa on his home debut? He really has been a big flop after reasonable expectations when signing him.
ItÂs no coincidence, with Lennon coming into the side more since playing for Everton, he has looked like scoring goals. I think it was Jermaine Jenas who said that he didnÂt get as many goals as heÂd like at Spurs because he very rarely ventured off hugging the wing.
I said when we signed Lennon there is a player there with quality and I think so far we are seeing it. Certainly since February, along with Phil Jagielka, he has been our best player.

We still havenÂt got to 40 points incidentally. Check the table rather than what the bookies think, thatÂs my advice. 12th, below Palace, Swansea, West Ham and Stoke.
IsnÂt Roberto wonderful? He kept a side that got European football last season up in the league. Hats off to him.

Personally, I canÂt stand the tedium of another year in the SpaniardÂs care so shall not be renewing my club tickets although I shall buy Âa cheapoÂ seat in case the spirit moves me and I feel the need to see the lads in action.
21 Posted 17/04/2015 at 13:45:36
Keep in mind that Hull have games against 3 of the top 5 still to play and Burnley would have to win at least 4 of their last 6 games to have any chance of catching us up. Nevermind the fact a lot of the last games will be between teams below us (i.e. they all canÂt get 3 points..)
Personally I think QPR and Hull are down (Hull have a nightmare run in). Then itÂs one out or Sunderland, Burnley and Leicester. Too close to call between them, especially as theyÂre all scheduled to play each other in the run in.
22 Posted 17/04/2015 at 14:26:45
Kind of exactly like David Moyes this year at Sociedad! Or last season when he took the Premier League Champions and guided them to a stout 7th place finish. Oh, if only we had dour Davey back.

Almost choked on my coffee!! I wish you hadnÂt told me... I think IÂd best go to the bookies and get my cash on it... an absolute cert!
How about a double with ÂStevie MeÂs FA Cup dreamÂ (all national newspapers and Sky) being ÂonÂ thanks to debatable penalty win?
28 Posted 17/04/2015 at 15:44:30
Last night, I was talking to an ex-RAF mate of mine, a rampant Celtic fan for as long as IÂve been a Blue, some 56 years. He told me that we were Âbloody stupidÂ to sign McGeady:
"If heÂd been any use, do you think weÂd have let the boy go? YouÂve signed two ex Old Firm players: ex RangersÂ Naismith, who I hate to admit will run his heart out for club and country, and ex-Celt McGeady who just... well... runs, and does fuck all at the end of it."
Coming from a hardened Celtic fan thatÂs quite an admission, but quite true when you assess McGeadyÂs performances. Pretty work down the wing then runs out of space and canÂt pick out a pass to save his life. Lennon should be a Âmust startÂ for us, then sign him and offload McGeady in the summer. They could virtually balance each other out, fee-wise.
29 Posted 17/04/2015 at 15:55:41

Keeping players who are either too old, injury prone or simply donÂt want to play for us should be done quickly and without any fuss. ItÂs not looking good so far with the statements about Mirallas and Gibson from Roberto.
ItÂs looking like he wants to keep the squad together when it obviously needs new faces after this seasonÂs fortunes.

Except Moyes didnÂt have La Real last season and has improved their position this season. CanÂt say the same for Martinez. Also, three of Man UtdÂs best players are Rooney, Mata, and Fellaini, who coincidentally were MoyesÂs signings (one re-signing). Given time, he likely would have gotten it right, most likely after weeding out the rest of the rats there including Giggs the backstabber.
However, we have Martinez now and Moyes is gone so why are you continuing to take shots at him? Did he not say 'Hello' to you once or something?

37 Posted 17/04/2015 at 16:58:21
I listened to Tim Sherwood in the week and he was saying that, when he took over at Spurs, Harry Kane was nowhere near the first team as he was behind Soldado and Adebayor. He said that the kid was scoring for the Under-21s so he gave him a chance. I guess if AVB had stayed in charge, Kane would have been on loan or sold to a Championship team.
So, RM, you never know if a young player is up to it unless you play them, mind when Browning came on in the derby, he did well; haven't seen the lad since. So, for me, it's about what RM does not what he says that matters. Surely practically being safe this is the ideal opportunity to give some of the youngsters a go.
38 Posted 17/04/2015 at 16:58:34
Plus, if they go, we could maybe get Pantillion from them to compete for the gloves. Mr USA has to go.

There has also been much talk about winning/losing matches and IÂm not sure which is the most important in the view of our modern day supporters.
Would we prefer a large crowd and a bad result or the other way round? What would be the best thing for the club? I suppose the answer lies in who the bad defeat was against or how poor the attendance was.
Let me explain, if we were playing against say Burnley or Liverpool, Man Utd, Chelsea or Arsenal would we be happy with a big crowd and a bad loss or a small crowd and a win? What would we remember? The crowd or the result?
As we all know we have suffered humiliating defeats against the shite, Man U, Chelsea and the Arse in the Premier League era and there were usually quite sizeable crowds to witness these forgettable moments.
What made me an Evertonian was in fact a sizeable defeat and at the hands of no other than the now lowly Burnley.
Evertonians have been fortunate to have retained their top flight status despite some dodgy times, Burnley however suffered and fell from the zenith of European Cup football and have struggled ever since.
So what was that match that made me an Evertonian or one of the tribe, it was a hefty 0 - 3 defeat at home to a then high riding Burnley on the 27th December 1960 with what turned out to be the highest crowd attendance that has seen since that day.
What a day, what a team we had, what an absolute marvellous honour to be at a jam-packed Goodison Park, shaking to the rafters with surging crowds of supporters all willing their team on and young kids circling the pitch on the touch line where they had been passed down by their fathers for safety and to see a truly memorable occasion.
Everton lost 0 - 3 but boy I would pay to see that all over again, time after time. Ou est le Âlost tribeÂ?

I did listen to the TalkSport show between 09:30am - 10:00am this morning. John Parrot was on talking about Snooker and Everton. Just before the show ended, Brazil gave out his get well soon message, but he didnÂt elaborate on what was the issue with Bill Kenwright.

50 Posted 17/04/2015 at 21:24:14
As for the headless chicken (Lennon), he should be on the bench. The other players just need to follow his example of working hard for the team Â– not too much to ask for is it!
I would like to see Garbutt more involved in the remaining games, but I canÂt see him being selected unless Baines is moved into midfield.
The interest in this season ended in Kiev, but the higher up the table we finish means more money for the transfer kitty. And it would be nice to see a big improvement in performances between now and the end of the season to at least show we might be heading in the right direction. Like it or not, Martinez will be here next season, so we just have to hope heÂs learned some harsh lessons and can display in these last few games that heÂs capable of getting more out of the players. At least then, with some good signings in the summer, we might have some fresh hope for next season.
I would play:
Coleman Jagielka Stones Garbutt
Mirallas Barkley Pienaar

Yes, they should beat Burnley on paper but, if they do, it wonÂt be pretty as the Clarets will be fighting like hell and have proved they can be a handful in many games just like Leicester.
There are no easy games where Everton are concerned and I would hope some of the players will be playing for their jobs next season. Very few of the Everton squad could claim form consistency this season and in fact I would say almost all of them have been consistently inconsistent, hence the poor season.

A win is all I want, Burnley donÂt keep many clean sheets so I expect us to score a few goals.
58 Posted 17/04/2015 at 22:32:56
I still hope that Martinez will get it right again. He hasnÂt gone too far down the road of no return to extinguish the potential I believe he has with Everton. But I believe that to scrutinize him on this seasonÂs performance only and bizarrely judge him against himself from last season Â– and a lot are Â– then do not forget the impact that two games a week have had on the team due to the Europa League.
You play Thursday. Travel back/rest on Friday. Light training Saturday. Match Sunday. Rest/"recover" Monday. Training Tuesday. Light training or fly out to another country Wednesday. Match Thursday.
You tell me on that schedule when the manager and his staff can get stuck into drills; methods; some actual coaching on plays?
Maybe we could judge Martinez better from next season Â– after a pre-season not disrupted by a World Cup and no Europa League. DonÂt forget, the Europa League has a more significant impact on one's domestic league performance than the Champions League. The Europa League clearly involves more games than the Champions League. But it also includes a more significant amount of travelling. In the Champions League youÂre playing teams from Spain, France, Germany, Portugal, Italy etc. In the Europa youÂre travelling additionally to more teams in Russia, Ukraine, Turkey.
Since that competition has ended for us, we have achieved seven points from nine. LetÂs just see how we get on between now and Autumn. If weÂre struggling, then yes maybe itÂs time to question the ManagerÂs appointment. But maybe with no European football hindrance, Martinez may thrive with Everton, given the same circumstances as his peers.

I have seen nothing to suggest that next season will be any better. As we are relatively safe. Martinez should be looking for more energy. He should be looking to try something different. He might just be surprised by a Garbutt - Baines combination. But we all know that he will try nothing. We all know that he will plod on with the old tried and tested plodders in midfield. We might win tomorrow. But I fear for Everton next week. I would have a go at Man Utd, with a few youngsters in the team.
A few wins, and some Everton supporters reckon that Martinez has turned things around. If it wasnÂt for his efforts all season, nothing would have needed turned around. Short memories from some supporters. The defeats at Christmas should never be allowed to happen, ever again. This season has been dire.
We need to start next season on the front foot. We need to show more energy. We need to show more passion. We need to be higher in the league. We need to be winning football matches. I give Martinez to October. If he has not got things right, then he goes. No more chances. But I do hope that he gets everything right. I hope he gets this team playing. Because this is all about Everton. Nothing else.
One of my earliest memories of watching Everton, was also a game against Burnley. It was a win for Everton, around 1969-70. Burnley had a good team then. And TBH I have always had a soft spot for them. They had some very good players, back then. We all remember Martin Dobson.
Never mind about Ings scoring tomorrow. If Frank Casper is still knocking about. He would also score. As usual, I do not trust that Everton will keep a clean sheet. I expect Burnley to give Everton a tough game. But I believe that we have better players. I believe that we will turn over a team before the end of the season. It could be tomorrow. This is now egg on face time, I am going for a 3-1 or a 4-1 win for Everton. Why not?
What would we all give, for the days when we knew that Everton only needed to turn up against teams like Burnley, and the win was guaranteed. I think that was maybe 30 years ago. Those were the days.
Get well soon, Mr. Kenwright (should he really be ill). For all his faults, he is still an Evertonian. COYBs

Okay, thatÂs the history lesson over. Let's beat Burnley tomorrow. And try to get some momentum going into the Man Utd game. Try and finish the season on a high.
64 Posted 18/04/2015 at 01:05:30
Villa to get nobbed by a late own goal, then the final kick in the nuts, losing a couple of players who will be assessed before the Man Utd game, none coming through and ending up playing Man Utd with no fit forwards.
That's the life and times of us Evertonians: up one minute down the next.

Anyway, IÂm totally amazed at how many of ye have caught the Martinez BLIND positivity bug. One of the most important attributes of a football manager I think is being able to see whatÂs happening fast and be able to change it. Having the balls to change it. Yes, it's important sometimes to be stubborn and stick to your guns but also be man enough to admit you got it wrong.
At the start of this year I loved RobertoÂs positive outlook. I was optimistic for McGeady but as the season went on, I could see Roberto was not the man I thought he was. His inability to say we were rubbish, we canÂt play this style, to see Lukaku needed early balls into him. The two best full backs in the league have been poor this year.
In my humble opinion RM hasnÂt got the know how to get the best out of the players we have. Yes, he's got lots of ideas of how the game can be played but doesnÂt see the facts in front of him.
I think heÂs learnt nothing this year and his obvious stubbornness to keep playing players like Barry, Howard, McGeady has proven to me he is not ruthless, honest and canÂt see where we are going wrong.
McCarthy has so much potential and if he played for Man Utd or Chelsea heÂd be driving forward much more and be the new Roy Keane.
I hope IÂm wrong Roberto

Like a few other lads, you failed to notice that, in the Swansea game, Martinez had lined up McCarthy directly in front of Barkley which allowed him to get involved in the much improved passing movements in the final third, including the goal assist. (Lukaku and Naismith were missing, which lessened our goal threat but helped us keep the ball.)
Of course, there were times when he did chase back, especially after attacking dead-ball situations when Jags, Baines and Stones moved upfield. His defensive mentality will always drag him back but I was thrilled to bits with his attacking link-up play.
I donÂt buy into this "responsibility" thing. TheyÂre doing their best for the team out there and, as far as IÂm concerned, theyÂre doing okay. For a million and one reasons, weÂve had a season to forget and I confidently look forward to more successful times. As the boss, Martinez has taken a hammering but certain recent events have caused me to see him in a better light.
77 Posted 18/04/2015 at 09:46:18
The Adelphi abuse wouldÂve been kept in due to the right (wrong) production staff on the film being RS. Sad but true. Same ilk as the non-entity at ITV that cut to a Tic-Tac ad when Gosling knocked them out of the cup.

I see a few of us are beating the Robles drum again. He lacks match practice and Howard (Mr "You're talking bollocks") has been reasonably reliable lately even if his Swansea penalty dive was a bit humiliating. I expect to see Pienaar continue the great come back he showed those of us that made the trip to Swansea. You couldnÂt see it on MotD but if you were on BT no doubt you know to what I refer. Just a month coming back from a hamstring seems a bit hasty, but we hope to see Lukaku. Two-nil at least please, With a clean sheet!

Ross @86, what makes you think we Âshould win at least 3-0Â today? Burnley have given lots of teams a good game this season, despite their league position, and theyÂve beaten Man City, drawn with Chelsea and narrowly lost 1-0 to Arsenal. I see no reason to think weÂll roll them over.
Sean Dyche has them right at it, and to think weÂll simply brush them off seems a little blue-tinted if you ask me. I wouldnÂt be at all surprised to see us lose today, although I think a draw is more likely.

As far as Martinez is concerned, I was one of the ones giving him a hammering. My confidence in him is very low but we will see what the future brings. If he turns it around, great.
