Everton striker Yakubu Aiyegbeni says he would be 'very disappointed' should David Moyes' side fail to achieve something great this season.
Moyes' men travel to Everton on Wednesday as they look to progress to the semi-finals of the Carling Cup.
And Yakubu, who netted a brilliant second-half hat-trick in Saturday's 3-0 victory over Fulham, believes his team-mates have what it takes to turn this season into one to remember.
"I am pleased with the way things have gone. I am working so hard in training to show what I can do and I will keep believing in myself that I can score on a regular basis," he said.
"At the moment, everything is good, the team is playing so well and it could not have gone much better for me since I arrived.
"We are fighting for everything, and the players around me give everything. They show how to play as a team and win together.
"We want to achieve something here this season. If we have not done that by the end of the season I will be very disappointed.
"We can play different systems, and I must admit I had not experienced 4-5-1 until now. It if different for me, I am not used to that, but I can adjust.
Sights on Wembley
"I have settled quickly. I have scored a lot already, but my colleagues keep working and buzzing around, and it shows the quality here.
"I am ready to give my best now for this team, we have West Ham next in the League Cup and I so much want to get to the final at Wembley.
"We can do it. The spirit here is good, and it is my dream to be in the final. If we can do that this season it will be so good for this club and the supporters."
