Martinez: We have a perfect balance of great bravery and talent
Roberto Martinez has always been confident about pushing his side harder as they aim to reach the Champions League places and says that if he didn’t have that dream then he would never get his side there.
The Everton manager has pushed his charges into fourth in the Premier League above Arsenal with a record 7 premier league wins on the bounce following a scrappy 1-0 victory away to Sunderland but Martinez believes that they can still improve because they have dropped points this season.
Martinez said: “If you don’t imagine it, you will never get there. I have never seen in football anyone achieve something that nobody had a bit of a dream or a bit of a vision about.
“I always felt that this group of players, with the 10 players we have bought in the two windows, we created a squad that had a perfect balance of great bravery and talent and young ambition with a real know-how and experience, and I think that balance is reflected in (Saturday’s) performance.
“Compared to last Sunday, it was a complete contrast and to have that diversity in your squad is phenomenal.
“The points that we have, it hasn’t been a case of luck or being fortunate, it’s the opposite.
“Every point that we have dropped this season, it has seemed a little bit unfortunate, and that shows you that we have got still a margin for improvement, and that’s what we are going to try to do from now until the end of the campaign.”
