Anichebe reveals top-four 'nightmare'

Everton striker Victor Anichebe has revealed the 'nightmare' the club's players are forced to endure as the hunt for a Champions League spot enters its final phase.

And it is Toffees boss - David Moyes.

Everton are still within reach of a desired spot in Europe's premier club competition next season, only six points off Tottenham with a game in hand on the Londoners in the Premier League.

However, the race will be a close-fought contest, with Chelsea and Arsenal also in the mix, and Moyes is adamant there will be no slip-up from his players.

"We will be up for every game. That's the way the manager is as well," Anichebe told The Sun. "Sometimes he's a nightmare but he's right - every game is important.

"When I say he's a nightmare I just mean he's so demanding. He's on you every day. That just shows the kind of character he is. He wants to be the best.

"Hopefully we can fulfil that. We have a chance, but if we keep looking at other teams it could affect us.

"We need to focus on ourselves and see where it takes us."

Meanwhile, veteran defender Tony Hibbert is making progress on his comeback to first-team action, with the 32-year-old turning out for the club's under-21 side.

Hibbert, who underwent calf surgery, managed to play just over an hour in the squad's 1-1 draw against Fulham.

Hibbert last played for the first team in December but looks set to be available for duty again before the end of the season.
