Andre on Toffees test

Andre Villas-Boas is looking to maintain our fine form in the Premier League - but knows we’re in for a test at Everton on Sunday.

We travel to Merseyside for a 3pm kick-off on the back of three-successive wins in the Premier League - nine points in the space of six days last week that lifted us up to fourth place.

But Andre is well aware that Goodison Park is one of the toughest away trips around and the Toffees remain unbeaten on home soil this season.

Indeed, David Moyes’ men have lost just twice in the Premier League all season but they’ve drawn eight of their 15 games so far.

“It’s a very difficult game, one of the most difficult,” said Andre.

“We want to continue with our momentum, continue to play well, we’re five games unbeaten (including the Europa League) with four wins and let’s hope we can maintain our form in the Premier League.

“It will be an extremely competitive game and a tough place to go to.

"Everton are rested, it’s a difficult ground and a competitive team. We need to recover our players and by winning and qualifying for the Europa League (against Panathinaikos on Thursday night), I’m sure we’ll get them recovering quickly.”
