Everton missed the chance to move into the Premier League's top six on Monday night despite a dominant performance against Crystal Palace.
Roberto Martinez's men controlled possession but saw Palace catch them on the break and with a set-piece.
The 1-1 draw that ensued left Everton ninth in the top flight, with Palace still in the top six.
But the encouraging performance delivered by Everton's in-form stars will still give them confidence of jumping up the table in the coming weeks.
Next up for the Toffees is a trip to Norwich City this weekend. The Canaries were beaten by Watford last weekend but did hold Arsenal at Carrow Road recently.
The Everton team, however, should be confident of getting something against Alex Neil's men. They were all smiles in practice as the likes of Romelu Lukaku, Brendan Galloway and Gerard Deulofeu trained on Thursday afternoon.
If the same build-up play Everton showed against Palace can be replicated - only with more of a cutting edge in front of goal (and a bit of luck, with Lukaku hitting the woodwork twice) - Martinez's men can be very hopeful indeed ahead of their trip south.
