Gylfi Sigurdsson insists the players will pick themselves up quickly after the draw against FC Basel as the huge games keep coming.

Gylfi's goal

Everton are next in a match that fits perfectly into that category as we return to Premier League action on Sunday.

The midfielder scored what might just turn out to be a key goal, the equaliser as we came from 2-0 down to secure a 2-2 draw against an impressive Basel side in the first leg of our Europa League quarter-final at the Lane on Thursday night.

But there is no time for the team to rest on their laurels with the Toffees fighting for a place in the top four after a run of three-successive wins in the Premier League.

As it stands, it's third against sixth with David Moyes' men just four points behind fourth-placed Chelsea.

“It’s the business end of the season and we’re all determined to finish in the top four,” said Gylfi. “We know it will be tough against Everton, they are a top team with some great players, but we’ll make sure we’re ready for them.”

Back to Basel, and Gylfi knows the target is goals when we travel to St Jakob Park for the second leg next Thursday, April 11.

“We’ve got to go out there, attack and score some goals,” he added. “It was a disappointing start for us, Basel have some good individuals and were difficult to deal with, but we managed to get back into the tie and we’re still right in it.”

We kick-off on Sunday at 2.05pm.
