|4/1||Everton are 4/1 with bet365 to finish in the top four|
Everton's 2-0 victory over Manchester United kept the club on course for European qualification - sitting one point behind fourth-placed Arsenal - and McCarthy is determined to secure a strong finish to the season.
"It [reaching Europe] is a big incentive and we'll give it our best shot," he told the club's official website.
"We want to get three points on the board and keep up the pressure on Arsenal. We want to try to get European football back at Goodison.
"I think there's still plenty of twists and turns to come and you never know. We'll look after ourselves and see what it brings at the end of the season."
McCarthy has made 31 Premier League appearances for Everton in his debut season with the club after following manager Martinez from Wigan last year.
