Everton left-back Leighton Baines believes the Toffees can still make a late surge for one of the Champions League places.

David Moyes' side are currently just two points behind fourth-placed Chelsea, although the west London side have two games in hand on the Goodison Park outfit.

Baines stated his delight at Everton's goalless draw against Arsenal on Tuesday and dismissed claims his side set out to bully Arsene Wenger's side at the Emirates Stadium.

"We know they are a good passing team, but we did not speak about physically disrupting them in terms of getting stuck in," said the England international

"We have taken points off a lot of the teams who will finish in the Champions League positions. I don't think anyone will particularly enjoy playing against us at any level."

Moyes' side have been in terrific form of late, with their most impressive victory coming with 10-men against Premier League champions Manchester City at Goodison Park back in March.

Everton take on relegation candidates Sunderland this weekend, and face Merseyside rivals Liverpool in a crunch game at Anfield during the first week of May.

The Toffees end the campaign at Chelsea, in a game which could determine whether they play Champions League football next season or not.
