The Toffees climbed up to second in the table with a victory over Southampton on 29 September but are now 11 points off the lead after drawing six of their last eight outings.

"Of course there is disappointment when you don't get three points because football is about winning," he said.

"It is football. It's not as if we've lost six out of eight games, we've been drawing.

"Most of the games we should probably have won had it not been for a mistake or a refereeing decision going in our favour.

"But we will stay positive, if we nick a goal in any of those games and we could be six or seven points better off. It is tight and a couple of wins will start you going in the right direction.

"We'll try and find a solution in the next few days and will look to start picking up wins in the next few weeks.

"After six draws in eight games we need to start turning them into wins if we want to finish high up the table."

It does not get any easier for Everton as they head to champions Manchester City on Saturday.

"We are looking forward to the game against City," he said.

"It is going to be difficult going to play the champions but we will be confident as we've had a reasonably good record there over the last few years (winning four of the last five)."
