Roberto Martinez has set his side a target of surpassing their record of 65 Premier League points haul this season.
Everton´s 3-3 draw with Liverpool on Saturday moved Everton on to 21 points from their opening 12 games, a figure they have bettered only once in the last 29 years.
And while urging his players to avoid a derby hangover, Martinez believes the Goodison outfit can top their previous top Premier League points tally of 65 achieved in 2008.
Martinez: â€œWe have always been capable of beating anyone, What we are trying to achieve is to get 70 points from 10 months of competition.
“It doesnâ€™t matter who you are playing against. What was great to see is we went eye-to-eye [with Liverpool] and we were the better side in open play.
â€œNow the next step is to get three points in those situations. We have to look at how we will perform in a less glamorous fixture, a game that is not a derby.
â€œThatâ€™s what you need over 10 months.â€
