But Everton have not been outside the top six since Christmas, and Moyes said: "The players have been terrific. We have got through a difficult few weeks with problems over injuries and maintained our position in the table.Everton would be champions of England and Europe if teams were judged on spirit alone, according to Blues boss David Moyes."I still believe fourth place is up for grabs, it will be hard to catch Aston Villa with them eight points ahead of us, but it is not something we will give up on.
"We are sixth at the moment, and that means a European spot now after Manchester United's (Carling Cup final) win at Wembley on Sunday"But I am looking much higher than that, it will be a tall order but not out of reach. If we can maintain our form of the last three months, we will not be far short of fourth or fifth."
