Martinez seeking a winning Everton side.



Everton manager Roberto Martinez is seeking a win after three consecutive draws in the Premier League.

The Toffees have played draws against Bournemouth, Crystal Palace, and Norwich in their last three games and they face table-toppers Leicester City on Saturday, with Martinez hoping to see off Ranieri's men.

“We’ve been playing at a fantastic level but one that hasn’t been appreciated because we haven't been winning games," Martinez said, Everton's official website reports.

“What we do now is share a feeling of emptiness because not to get three points at the end of very good, dominant performances is quite hurtful and tough to take. But in the same way, we have to be a little bit more intelligent in order to see how the team is performing, how far we have come and look at what an exciting group we have.


“Now it is the responsibility of everyone connected with Everton to help get that final stage of becoming a winning team, which is managing games and understanding certain moments and getting through periods where the opposition is going to have a reaction.

“Luck plays a part in that - when you hit the woodwork four times in two games, a couple of inches could make a big difference.

“We know we are not there yet because we haven’t got the three points in each game so the work and focus is for everyone is to become perfect and better. It is a period where, at the end of the season, we will look back as pivotal moment that allowed everyone to get that extra one per cent.


“Overall there is a really positive feeling in the dressing room and a sense of a really special team that is ready to represent our football club with style and incredible attacking play.”
