Everton’s Champions League bid remains on track thanks to Monday night’s 1-0 victory that came from Richarlison over a Southampton side anxiously looking at the other end of the Premier League table.
Everton manager Carlo Ancelotti hopes Monday’s 1-0 win over Southampton acts as a springboard in their bid to bring Champions League football to Goodison Park next season.
But, while Everton’s worst home run since 1958 was brought to an end, the pain for Saints continued with just one draw and eight defeats in their last nine league matches leaving them seven points above the bottom three and wondering just where their next win will come from.
Everton in rare race for champions league spot.
Speaking afterwards to Sky Spots, Ancelotti said: “To fight for European places we need to improve the home run, this performance and victory can help us have a better run at home.
“It will be a dream to be in the top four at the end of the season. We are quite close, but the season is long – we have to stay in our goal which is to play Europa next season.”
