Everton’s Revival

Football - Wigan Athletic v Everton Barclays Premier League

Everton’s 0-1 win at the DW stadium against Wigan extends their unbeaten run to 9 league games and provides them with their third consecutive league win. David Moyes’ side began the season riddled with injury and disappointingly fell to a 1-6 defeat against Arsenal, but with Arteta, Yakubu and Anichebe returning from injury the side are starting to pile up the points. Lescott’s messy transfer to Man City unsettled the players and may have attributed to their weak start in the Premier league.

 However arguably the most important factor in Everton’s resurgence is their talented players finding form; Cahill, Pienaar, Saha, Fellaini and Donovan have all been scoring for the Toffees as well as their solid defence keeping 3 consecutive clean sheets in the league. Despite Everton’s loss in the FA cup fourth round to Birmingham no one can deny their rich vein of form as they are now perched 9th in the Premiership after holding Arsenal and Chelsea to a draw as well as beating an in form Man City side.

Cult midfielder Fellaini in particular has been playing brilliantly recently after finding his position in midfield and put in his best performance for the Toffees against rich boys Man City. He looked a real goal threat as well as dealing with any City danger and the towering Belgian capped his marvelous performance with an impressive drag back that earned him a standing ovation from the excited fans.

Any Everton fan will be willing Arteta to re-find his form after being out since Febuary 2009 with an anterior cruciate ligament injury. Everton’s number 10 returned to action in Everton’s game against Birmingham last weekend. The Spanish play maker will be eased back into the starting team and will hope to be the injection of creativity to Moyes’ side, with Fellaini’s brilliant 360 pivot against Man City and Pienaar’s impressive runs filling the void at the moment.

Everton although not blessed with riches are blessed with good players and a great manager, Moyes lead the side to an FA cup final and 5th place in the Premier league last season and it is still possible for them to challenge for top 4 this season with many sides dropping points. Moyes demands respect from his players and is given it as his team play with good discipline and control, nevertheless they can still play exciting football having scored 33 goals in 23 games in the league.

CAPTION CORRECTION....Football - Liverpool v Everton FA Cup Fourth Round

Everton will hope to continue their recent run of form in the Europa league and the Premiership and now are concentrating on beating fierce rivals Liverpool in their upcoming Premier league derby after losing at home last time round. Hopefully they can join the outsiders Man City, Tottenham and Aston Villa in challenging for the top four spot and make this season the most exciting to date.

    I’d be interested to know if you think Everton can challenge for a top 4 spot or if you think they had too bad a start to the season. Personally i think that so many teams are dropping points if Everton keep up this form they can bag a top 4 spot.

    4th spot?

    As an Everton fan myself it’s highly unlikely that they will reach 4th. We are currently 9th and ten points off fourth placed Spurs.

    We are getting the team back in good shape, with the likes of Yobo and Yakubu coming back from the ACON, Plus Arteta and Rodwell are fit again. Looking at the squad without any injury problems, the depth of it is very very good, Everton has got options all over the field, and back-up in every position. Left-Back though is the only thing that worries me.

    To be honest the team has an incredibly tough month coming up, as I mentioned in my blog yesterday that they have to play Liverpool, Spurs, Man Utd and two europa cup games.

    If we can deal with them teams, we could well fight for 5th or 6th spot. However 4th at the minute is pushing it.

    Maybe so but if they at least put pressure on the so called big four along with Spurs, City and Villa it could make the end of season very exciting. With so many good teams at the moment a 5th or 6th place spot would be a great achievment still.
