Everton right-back Tony Hibbert is confident that the club will turn their form around after the international break.
The Toffees, 21.00 to win the Europa League this season, are only two points above the drop zone and they sit 17th in the Premier League after a disappointing start to the campaign.
Roberto Martinez’s men were expected to be competing for the European places again this season but they have yet to show their best form.
Everton have only won one game so far this season in the league – at West Brom – but they have done well in the Europa League picking up four points from games against Wolfsburg and Krasnodar.
Everton have taken on Arsenal, Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool, though, and Hibbert is confident they can turn their form around when they return to domestic duty.
He said: “Football is funny. It’s hard to figure out why it hasn’t worked for us.
“We haven’t started the way we wanted to, but it will come. We’ll click again. The games will come thick and fast again after the international break and we just need to get our confidence back and get going again.
“We just need a win. We’re not playing badly. We need to believe in ourselves more because we’ve still got the players we had last season. It’s only a matter of time.
“Hopefully after next weekend we’ll have some of the injured men back and then we’ll kick on.”
