Marouane Fellaini admits he's desperate to play in the Champions League and wants Everton to maintain their league position to qualify.
The Belgian midfielder has been in outstanding in the Toffees' run of results which has seen David Moyes' side break into the Premier League's top four.
The 25-year-old, who was on Tuesday named player of the month for November after scoring four goals and helping create two more, has been enjoying himself in a more advanced role this season.
His form has not gone unnoticed by the Premier League's elite but, with Chelsea, Arsenal and Zenit St Petersburg all hovering, Fellaini remains focused on getting Everton into Europe's top competition.
"At the moment I am playing well. I am happy - but the most important things are the team and the club," the eight-goal midfielder told evertonfc.com.
"I try to give my maximum in every game. The manager likes it when I play in attack, so at the moment, it's good for me and the club.
"I've been scoring the goals and I work hard on the pitch.
"This season we have played well. We thank the fans because we have great support.
"Everybody wants to play Champions League next season so we work hard for this and hopefully we can finish in the top four."
Fellaini's form makes a compelling case to claim a £10 free stake and bet on Everton to fulfil their ambition of reaching the top table of Uefa competition again.
