Roberto Martinez wants Everton to 'use pain' of Man City defeat
Everton manager Roberto Martinez has urged his players to bounce back from their Capital One Cup semifinal loss to Manchester City by setting off on a good run of form.
The Toffees, who travel to League Two Carlisle United in the FA Cup on Sunday, are 12th in the Premier League after a poor spell.
And Martinez, whose side have won only six league games this season, said: "As a player, you don't look back and try to get memories from halfway through the season.
"It is what you achieve and what you build in a career. We have shown fantastic signs and great performances, but it is something we need to improve as we are not winning every weekend and that is what we want.

"In the team in general we have good options, and we need to become better. We need to make sure we use all the pain we had on Wednesday to become as good as we can be for the rest of the season."
The Goodison Park manager said he would make "no changes for the sake of it" at Carlisle and stressed: "It is a vitally important game for us on Sunday."
He added that goalkeeper Joel Robles, who played in the Capital One Cup ties, would again be in goal against the Cumbrians.
