Tim Howard believes Everton can claim a top-six finish this season and has praised the spirit at Goodison Park, saying "it's incredible".
The Toffees, who have won two of their opening three games, finished seventh last term after a late leapfrog of rivals Liverpool.
And Howard is confident David Moyes' men have what it takes to qualify for Europe this time around.
"The spirit at the club is incredible," Howard told the Daily Star Sunday. "There are no egos and the guys all fight for each other. David Moyes has a real good recipe for success. "He doesn't just bring in every good player available. He brings in guys who can play two positions who will also buy into the Everton way. And then he guides them along.
"He's an incredible motivator. And he gets better at it every year.
"We now want to finish in the top six and get into Europe. The Champions League might be a stretch because we can't spend the same kind of money as the five or six clubs in England who can.
"But on the pitch I think we have what it takes to do well in the Premier League. And getting back to Wembley would be great, too."
