Howard has Liverpool in his sights
Updated Wednesday, 6th April 2011
Everton goalkeeper Tim Howard has set his sights on overhauling Liverpool in the closing weeks of the season.
The Toffees have moved up to seventh and within four points of their arch-rivals in the Barclays Premier League after a five-game unbeaten run.
Everton have finished above their neighbours just once since last winning the title in 1987 but Howard believes momentum is on their side and is anticipating an exciting Merseyside battle over the remaining seven games.
The 32-year-old American said: "We have still got miles to go and we want to keep cracking on.
"Our natural-born rivals are right ahead of us and we are going to try to nip on their heels and get a couple of results.
"The rivalry is amazing and for the city this run-in will be great. We are going to try to overtake them and I am sure they are going to try to do everything to crack on in the table as well."
