The Toffees have impressed hugely this season under Martinez, who has managed to introduce his passing style - which was honed at Wigan and Swansea.

Martinez's methods were a big change for Everton from their previous style operated under David Moyes, and despite having games with Liverpool, Manchester United and Arsenal coming up - there will be no moving away from their new attacking approach.

"For me it's important that we can play eye to eye against the top four clubs," he told the Liverpool Echo.

"It's not good enough to let them take the leading role and simply say we're going to be solid and hard to beat, then we'll take opportunities.

"We're not like that. I want us to be ourselves in any situation against any team and I was pleased we did it in the second half at Crystal Palace."

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
