Arsenal 0 Everton 0: David Moyes targets five wins for Toffees
Arsenal 0 Everton 0: David Moyes says his side will probably have to win all of their remaining games to have chance of top-four finish
David Moyes admits Everton will probably have to win all five of their remaining games to have any chance of a top-four finish after the Toffees played out a goalless draw with Arsenal.
With both sides chasing Champions League qualification, neither were able to make the breakthrough in an entertaining game in north London.
The point leaves Moyes’ Everton sixth in the Premier League table and four points behind third-placed Arsenal.
And the Scot concedes that the Merseysiders are likely to need maximum points from their remaining games if they are to finish in the top four.
“It keeps [our Champions League hopes] going,” Moyes told Sky Sports. “We went to Tottenham [on 7 April] and got a draw and I wasn’t disappointed but I knew that we had to win to get more of a mention.
“This probably keeps it the same. It probably means that we have to win all of our games to have any chance.
“But the players are playing well, we’ve had a couple of tough away games and we’ve picked up some points.”
Reflecting on Tuesday’s draw, Moyes added: “I thought it was a really good game. I know there were no goals but it was end-to-end.
“We played some good stuff at times and we tried to make a real game of it.
“We didn’t have as many chances in the second half as we would have liked but every manager who comes here and plays Arsenal knows you’re not going to get loads of opportunities.”
Next up for Everton in the league is a trip to Paolo Di Canio’s Sunderland on Saturday.
