Everton are looking to finish this season on a high note with a Europa League spot still potentially up for grabs.
Depending on who makes the FA Cup final this season, seventh place in the Premier League could yield a qualifying spot for the competition and so we must strive to finish there.
The club as a whole is striving for a strong finish, too, with the U23 side yet again doing brilliantly in the Premier League 2 competition.
Indeed, they are top of the league at the moment having beaten Liverpool earlier this week and one of their players has put pen to paper on his first professional deal with the Blues.
Anthony Gordon is that player:
