The Toffees kept their hopes of a Champions League place alive with a 2-0 victory over Manchester United at Goodison Park this afternoon, a result that keeps them one point behind Arsenal in the race for fourth.
"We have another nine points to fight for. We play Manchester City, Southampton, and Hull a week before the cup final. You couldn't pick a worse three games," Martinez told reporters.
Everton have already amassed their highest number of points in a Premier League season, with today's victory taking their tally up to 69.
