Everton homing in on Larin?

Everton boss Roberto Martinez seeking trophy or bust

Everton manager Roberto Martinez has expressed his goal to win a trophy this season -- and he's willing to face the consequences should they fail.

The Toffees are without a major trophy since the 1995 FA Cup, but Martinez says he welcomes the pressure to end that drought with the clock ticking in his third season in charge.

"As Everton manager, I take responsibility; we have to be a winning team," Martinez said before Sunday's match against Tottenham.

"We should be winning games and winning titles, not just looking to compete and hope for a win. Winning is in this club's DNA and it has been too long since we won a title.

"We have the talent at this club: we are not quite the finished article yet, otherwise we would be top of the league, but we have to try to win something in the next five months."

"I'm under pressure, and I accept that. That's what I want.

Roberto Martinez is ready to start winning some trophies with Everton.

"I am not happy just to go through the motions. I want to be producing teams that become better, that can play attractive football and that can score goals.

"But, at the end of it, we want to be winning things. I don't expect anything different. At Everton, we want to be under that sort of scrutiny."

Martinez also claimed Everton are the Premier League's "most exciting team," though that might not always be a good thing with the way they've thrown away leads recently against Bournemouth, Norwich and Stoke.

"We are probably the most exciting team, from a neutral point of view. Our attacking play is exceptional," Martinez said. "But we are also the first ones to accept that, defensively, we have conceded too many goals and goals that have to be defended in a better manner.
