Everton kept their hopes of European qualification alive as the return of home fans at Goodison Park sparked them into life with a 1-0 win over Wolves.

This is already guaranteed to be Everton’s worst home season in league football, taking just 19 points before this game but buoyed by noise from the stands Richarlison’s header (48) was the difference between the teams.

Wolves failed to create any problems for Everton after falling behind, having just one shot in the final 42 minutes as their season is ending with a big whimper.

The result means Everton remain in eighth, but takes them level on points with Tottenham, who lost at home to Aston Villa, in sixth. Although a far inferior goal difference and final-day trip to Manchester City still leaves them as outsiders.

Seventh-placed West Ham play West Brom later on Wednesday and could move above Spurs with a win.
