Moyes cools top-four talk

25 February 2008 01:00
Everton manager David Moyes has played down his side's chances of finishing in the top four this season, even though a draw at Manchester City on Monday would lift the Toffees above Liverpool and into the final Champions League spot. Moyes' side are unbeaten in their six Premier League matches since the turn of the year and beat City 1-0 at Goodison Park last month, and the former Preston North End boss is excited by what the rest of the season could have in store for his team. He told the club's official website: "At the moment I'd say Liverpool are in pole position. We've got the points but you'd still have to say they're favourites to finish fourth. "I'd see them in that position more than Manchester City or any other side. "We've got seven games in March coming up and who knows what may come up in April. "It's going to test us all and maybe we might find it gets too much. "But at this moment, I feel as if we're flying. We're still going strong. I don't see anybody feeling jaded - we're full of life and showing a lot of confidence."
