The Blues currently sit 11th in the table after another disappointing campaign.

Everton goalkeeper Tim Howard has assured the club’s fans that they will be working to fix their problems this season, in comments to Sky Sports.

The Blues have endured a disappointing season this year, as they sit 11th in the Premier League table and unlikely to finish in the top half of the table.

The criticism has largely been aimed at manager Roberto Martinez, who many believe should be replaced at Goodison Park.

While he must take some of the blame, the players must also take responsibility, as some have not performed to the best of their abilities.

Saturday afternoon saw them return to winning form against Bournemouth and Howard says they are working hard to ensure they get it right in the games remaining.

"One thing I can assure everyone is we are going to work and we try our tails off to win football matches, no-one chucks it in,” he told Sky Sports.

“I think as senior players you try to protect the younger ones because they've not seen it before but I'm an old dog and I've seen it all before.”

"No criticism fazes me; not from the media, outside sources or social media. It is just words. We have to go to work every day and try to get it right.”

Even if Everton do enjoy a winning end to what has been a disappointing campaign, the pressure is likely to remain on Roberto Martinez.

After a strong first season in charge, the last two years have been far from impressive and worryingly, several of the clubs’ stars do not seem to be progressing.

That is the view that the Everton faithful are taking, and they are likely to keep calling for change in future.
