Roberto Martinez is expecting a difficult match when his Everton side come up against relegation-threatened QPR on Sunday.
Everton are 14th, only six points clear of the bottom three themselves after beating Newcastle United 3-0 last weekend, and Martinez is keen to go into the international break with another three points.
Everton, who slumped to a 5-2 Europa League defeat at Dynamo Kiev on Thursday, are 2.25 to win at Loftus Road on Sunday afternoon, with Romelu Lukaku available at 5.50 to open the scoring.
“It is having the right balance and having fresh legs,” Martinez said. “We have accumulated enough experience, having played ten games in Europe, to know what’s needed.
“But we expect a really difficult game. QPR at home have found a way of playing that is very effective and is going to test us.
“They have four games left at home and they will treat them as finals so we can’t be affected by the environment and what is around us and perform as well as we can.”
Everton are 81.00 to be relegated this season, while QPR are available at 1.14 to go down.
