The Blues were beaten 3-0 at the Stadium of Light this evening in a game that ensured Sunderland stayed in the Premier League, but the manner of the defeat summed up the lack of intensity and desire that has fractured Everton’s season.
Martinez conducted a 50 second post-match interview with Sky Sports and answered two questions before being asked if he expected to still be in charge against Norwich.
“That’s not a question,” said Martinez, who looked almost surprised to be asked.
“You can’t be happy if you don’t win football games, but I’m happy with the effort and the intent of the players.
“What we have in front of us now is the game against Norwich at home and want to make sure we get a performance that gives us a good feeling to finish the season off.
“We are a team.
“We lost a game today and what we want is to get that winning feeling and as a team we’ll go out and try to finish the season as good as we can.”
