Everton boss Roberto Martinez has admitted that his side have been conceding too many goals at home, but hopes that they can carry on their away form at Chelsea this weekend.
The Blues travel to Stamford Bridge in the hope of doing the double over the Champions this season, after beating them 3-1 at home in September.
Steven Naismith scored a hat-trick that day, but he won’t be in the squad thanks to an ankle injury and the ongoing business of selling him.
Martinez said, “We want to carry momentum. Our season has been very consistent in that respect. We enjoy playing away from home, we’ve been a good attacking team scoring goals with ease at Goodison.
“Defensively we have conceded too many goals, which have cost our results. But our performances have been very consistent.
“Playing well gets recognised, and gives you belief and confidence. It’s important that we maintain the levels.”
