Everton new boy Gylfi Sigurdsson believes that the Blues are still capable of qualifying for the knock-out stages of the Europa League this season despite a poor start to the campaign.
The Blues have just one point going into the crucial third game of the group stages against Lyon on Thursday evening at Goodison Park.
The Icelander says that he and his team are determined to turn around the poor start and says that they are only just off their best.
“It’s a strange group. I think everyone can beat anyone,” Sigurdsson said.
“There are some good teams in there. You may need at least 10 points to go through and it will be nice to start (building towards) that on Thursday against a tough team.
“The boys and the staff are determined to work hard to turn this around because we’ve got good players. Personally and with all of the players collectively, we’re just off our best.
“But they are small margins in football and I don’t think we’re a mile off getting results, and a couple of scruffy wins, 1-0 away or whatever it is, that pumps a little bit of confidence into the team and that’s sometimes what you need.”
