Everton full-back Seamus Coleman has claimed talk of qualifying for Europe this season is off the agenda after their terrible start.
David Moyes' Toffees currently sit rock-bottom of the Premier League having only managed three points from six matches so far.
Pre-season talk of challenging for the European places has been thrown out of the window and the 21-year-old Irish defender just wants to get back to winning ways.
"I'd like to forget about what's going to happen at the end of the season and just start winning," he said in the Liverpool Echo.
"You don't want to be looking towards the end of the season before you've kicked a ball because anything can happen in football.
"You need to take each game as it comes. Every game in the Premier League is tough, and you have to treat the lower teams the same as the top teams. Look at West Brom beating Arsenal at the weekend."
Everton have not yet managed a win in the league this term but will hope to change things when they travel to Birmingham in the top-flight on Saturday.
A defeat to Brentford in the Carling Cup earlier in the month was preceded by a miserable 1-0 reverse at home to Newcastle.
But the Merseyside outfit managed a point at Fulham last time out and Coleman believes the mood in the camp will change once they get a few wins under their belt.
"If we can put a good run together then people start changing their tones, and three or four games unbeaten and you're flying," he added.
"But we can't look too far ahead. One win gets a bit of confidence back. Football is a lot to do with confidence, and wins will give us more of that."
