Everton won’t give up fourth-place dream, Tim Howard warns Arsenal
Everton goalkeeper Tim Howard believes Arsenal can drop points in their remaining three Premier League games
Everton are refusing to give up hope of a fourth-place finish, Tim Howard has warned Arsenal.
The Toffees suffered a surprise 2-0 loss to Southampton at St Mary’s on Saturday ahead of Arsenal’s clash against Newcastle United at The Emirates tonight.
We are a top team and dropped points but Arsenal can drop points as well
Arsene Wenger’s men are a point ahead of Everton and can move four points clear with victory over the Magpies, but Toffees goalkeeper Howard is staying positive.
“Absolutely not. We still have a chance mathematically so therefore it is not the end,” Howard is quoted as saying by Sky Sports.
“We need to win and play better. There are still six points remaining, if we win and Arsenal drop points we are in the Champions League.
“You can’t legislate for own goals, especially two in the space of 30 minutes, but it just happens and you deal with it and move on.
“We are trying with every bone in our body but that is part of being at the top, part of the pressure that professional athletes thrive on, and it has not been a problem.
“We are a top team and dropped points but Arsenal can drop points as well. We have been putting in brilliant performances all season so will expect a good display next week (against Manchester City).”
