David Moyes has denied that he will consider quitting as Everton manager following a difficult first half of the season at Goodison Park.
Moyes praise for Spurs
Everton currently sit in 14th place in the Premier League, just two points above the relegation zone, and have lost top-scorer Tim Cahill to Asian Cup duty.
Moyes has seen his side collect just four wins in 20 games - a poor record for a side that has finished fourth, fifth twice and sixth under their current manager in recent years.
Despite growing frustration at Everton's poor form, Moyes says he is not prepared to resign from his position.
"I wouldn't walk away," Moyes said. "I have been here eight years and made Europe four or five times. We've had dodgy spells and come through so you hope everyone keeps believing.
"Nobody knows how bad I feel the team is not in the position I think it should be. Nobody is putting in more hours than me. All I can do is keep putting all my energies into getting us away from this position."
