thumbnail Hello,

The Toffees boss is determined to improve how his side start seasons but the club are on course to end the campaign strongly, having gone on an unbeaten run of late

Everton boss David Moyes is targeting a top-10 finish in the Premier League for his side to call their season a success.

The Toffees started the campaign slowly but, following their 1-0 victory over Tottenham on Saturday, they have now gone unbeaten in 10 games across all competitions.

Moyes is pleased with the team's current form but insiststhat he will analyse their poor start to 2011-12 during the coming pre-season.

"I still think if we finish in the top 10 it will be a good result for us," he told The Sun.

"If this carries on I'll be delighted because it will have meant we have finished the season well.

"But I'll have to get back to the drawing board again to think about pre-season after the way we started the campaign.

"We have dug in and tried to get results and now we are getting results I'm complaining the performances aren't better. We have come the whole journey at Everton.

"If we win, I want a good performance and if we don't win, I just want to win."

Everton are 13/5 with Bet365 to come away with a point when they take on Liverpool on Tuesday.

The Everton boss also hailed the performance and goal of Nikica Jelavic, who made his home debut in the victory over Spurs, outlining his happiness at seeing the Croat get on the scoresheet following his January move from Rangers.

"Although I am always grateful for what I've got, I do think his signing gave the whole club and the supporters a boost in January," added Moyes.

"When you are a manager and you see a player you bought score, it gives you a good feeling.

"I thought he worked hard for the team, he bought into it.

"He looked like a centre forward and produced some really good hold-up play when we got it into him."
