Tim Howard insists that Arsenal are the favourites to clinch fourth place and Champions League qualification this season.

The Toffees, who host the Gunners at Goodison Park on Sunday, can move to within a point of the fourth-placed north Londoners if they win their game in hand.

Arsenal are still favourites for fourth; they are four points ahead of us

But Everton goalkeeper Howard feels that Arsene Wenger’s men are the clear favourites to finish fourth and book their spot in next season’s Champions League.

“I don’t think we are favourites for fourth place,” said Howard.

“It is a little bit in our hands as we have a game in hand and we go head-to-head with Arsenal, but they still have four points on us and it is difficult.

“So we are on the outside looking in – but I think you want to be in the fight always.

“Sure, Arsenal are still favourites for fourth; they are four points ahead of us – but it’s our job to make those four points up. If we can do it, then I suppose we will be favourites.”
