West Ham (H) – March 5

Despite another largely inconsistent season, Everton are still just five points behind Manchester United in fifth, and have some key games over the coming months.

One of those is when they host West Ham, another team gunning for the Europa League. A win for the Toffees at Goodison Park would give them an advantage over the Hammers.

Everton need Romelu Lukaku to start firing again if they are to push on up the Premier League table.

Manchester United (A) – April 2

As mentioned above, United are stuttering and still very much catchable, and Roberto Martinez won’t want his side to drop points when they make the trip to Old Trafford.

As many teams have done this term, frustrating the home players and crowd could be the key to taking a positive result back to Merseyside.

Southampton (H) – April 16

The Saints are currently sixth and well in contention to qualify for the Europa League for the second successive season.

The Toffees will know that three points against Ronald Koeman’s side could be vital to their own chase for European football, and they will be buoyed by the fact that the South Coast outfit haven’t won at Goodison since 1997.
