West Brom defender Jonny Evans wants the club to dream big in light of their impressive form this term.
The former Manchester United player want the team to overthrow Premier League rivals Everton from the seventh spot and earn European football action next term.
West Brom have been in decent form, placing eight in the standings. With 13 games left this season, they hope to continue with their four-game unbeaten run to usurp the Toffees to seventh place.
“Everton are still four points ahead of us, we want to catch Everton, that’s the next aim. You’re always looking above you. West Ham are trying to catch us. We haven’t talked about specific targets. I know the manager will say we get to 40 points and work from there, exactly like Leicester City did last season,” Evans said.
Chelsea are eight points ahead of Manchester City who place second. Tottenham and Arsenal are on 50 points, but Spurs goal difference place them above the Gunners. Liverpool, Manchester United and Everton take fifth to seventh respectively. West Brom follow Everton closely, four points behind. Stoke City and West Ham are five points behind, completing the top ten sides on the table.
Evans added that they were not dreaming as big as winning the league but they do not want to fizzle out after putting themselves in “such a good position.”
“We want to capitalize on this position and make it a season to remember,” he said.
The Baggies could go beyond their best ever points total of 49. Tony Pulis’ men host Bournemouth next as they continue to put pressure on Everton for a spot in Europe. Everton are equally on a good form, making them a side that would likely not slip out of the top seven.
