What should Everton's target be this season?

Are Everton real contenders for European qualification this season?

We've described the current Everton squad as one built on the solid foundations of Scot David Moyes, but with the added continental flair of Spaniard Roberto Martinez.

Under Moyes Everton were often very strict in our style, system and formation. That defensive set-up hasn't changed under Martinez. Tim Howard has remained in net, behind the defence of Seamus Coleman, Sylvain Distin, Phil Jagielka and Leighton Baines.

But in midfield and attack, this is where Martinez has had his biggest influence. He wants us to change our style and it's led to some exciting performances.

We move the ball quicker, the tempo has been raised and we've seen the coming of age for Ross Barkley.

But just how far can this side go? Can we get back into UEFA Europa League contention? Could we even be fighting for a birth in the top four and a UEFA Champions League place?

"We are still very early in the season, it would be foolish for us to be saying that now. Martinez told The Echo.

He continued: "We need to use the first two-thirds of the season to see how many points we can get.

"Then we`d go into the last third fighting for it.

"I`m very pleased with the squad, we have a great mixture of young talent and experience and it excites me - but it`s too early to say what we`ll be fighting for."
