Everton are out of the Premier League title race at this point, but they still have seen a marked improvement under Carlo Ancelotti this season. The highlighly accomplished manager has greatly improved the squad, and they have a few different ways in which they can still find glory this season.

Finishing in top four, and/or above Liverpool in the table is still in their grasp, and both goals will certainly provide a lot of motivation tomorrow, when we have the next edition of the Merseyside derby.
