Leighton Baines has challenged Everton to embark on another FA Cup run after reaching the final last year.
The Toffees overcame Manchester United at Wembley in the semi-finals of the 2008/9 competition before losing out to Chelsea.
Baines is now hoping to go one step further after helping Everton knock out Carlisle in a hard-fought third round tie on Saturday.
"Last year the semi-final was amazing, especially with those scenes after the game," the full-back told the Liverpool Echo.
"Then being able to play in a final regardless of the result will be a career highlight for many of us.
"But that is all motivation and just motivates us to get there again because we know it's achievable.
"We know we can do it. Yes we fell at the final hurdle but we want to go on a new run."
Everton face a tough task against either Birmingham or Nottingham Forest in the next round but Baines knows they were lucky to edge out Carlisle thanks to two late goals.
"Those sorts of games are always hard work," said Baines, who scored Everton's third goal from the penalty spot.
"Sometimes you could think it's the players or a lack of motivation but it's more about how when the likes of Carlisle come.
"It is their game of the season and will probably top anything they do all season in terms of work rate.
"The important thing was to get the first goal, but then we conceded and that swings the pendulum back in their favour and gives them such a big lift.
"Had we steadied the ship after going ahead we would likely have gone on and been able to dominate, but fair play to them, they were brilliant."
