Wigan manager Roberto Martinez believes Everton "tick every box" but is confident his team can provide more than a match for them in their Boxing Day clash at Goodison Park.

The Toffees are having an impressive 2012-13, losing just twice in their 18 Barclays Premier League games so far and currently lie fifth in the table, behind fourth-placed Arsenal on goal difference alone.

Asked if he thought the Toffees would be able to sustain their top-four push, Martinez said: "Yes, because of the experience they have got and because of the way they have started the season."
