Marouane Fellaini: Confident Everton can win the FA Cup this season

The Belgian took his goal tally for the season to 12 when he netted Everton's opener in a 3-1 victory over Reading last weekend.

However, he has played down the significance of the number and stressed that his only focus is making a contribution to the team, ahead of Saturday's FA Cup quarter-final against Wigan Athletic.

"I scored last week but the most important thing is the three points against Reading," Fellaini told the club's official website.

"Now I am ready for Wigan in the quarter-final of the FA Cup and I hope to win the game. That's the most important thing - for the supporters, for the staff, for Everton. It's important to win because it is good for confidence."

Asked about a goals target for the season, Fellaini added: "I'm happy and when I score the goals it is a bonus for me.

"I'm not a striker, I'm not a goalscorer - I'm a midfielder. It's good for me but it's important to win every game.

"I have played more up front and I'm more in the box, so I have more chances to score the goals now. I try to concentrate when I'm in the box.

"I don't have an idea of how many I can score but I will try to play well. I will try to keep going and we will see."

Fellaini is confident that Everton can progress past Wigan and go on to challenge for FA Cup glory.

He said: "Everybody has a big motivation for this game. There is a big chance for Everton and the players. Every day the players come in and work hard for this, so I hope we can go to the semi-finals this season.

"We have a good team and good players. Now the most important thing is Saturday and I hope every supporter can help the team to win the game.

"I have played here five years and I have won nothing, so I hope this season we can win a trophy. When you play football, you want to win something and I hope we can this season."
