Far from surprising most people, Everton have simply hit the ground running with new manager Roberto Martinez, rather than taking time to adjust and adapt to the workings of a new individual in the dugout.
Currently in fifth place in the Premier League, Everton are hoping to finish in the top four this season, and there’s no reason why they shouldn’t set their sights that high. But the team will need reinforcements this January. Where the defence has been particularly impressive, Everton haven’t always found the net with ease at the other end.
There’s no doubt that Martinez will need a few extra bodies to sustain this charge on the top four.
