The Toffees won 17 of their 38 league games and finished 15 points clear of eighth place Southampton, although did trail sixth place Manchester United by eight points.

Much of Everton's success has been based around the deadly finishing of Romelu Lukaku this term, with the Belgian finishing second in the Golden Boot charts with 25 Premier League goals.

The 23-year-old struggled to impress at the Emirates Stadium however, missing the target with each of the six shots he attempted while also creating just one chance.

Everton boss Ronald Koeman is not confident Ross Barkley will stay with the club but is "not worried" about the situation. "Ross Barkley needs to leave Goodison to show what he can do and I can see him in a Tottenham shirt". Recharging the batteries will be important, but so is the business you try to do as a club, especially as we want to continue to make the team stronger and strive closer towards our ultimate goals. We need an answer after the weekend. We need to find players with more productivity.

But I will have my mobile phone with me constantly as we will be trying to do the business that can take Everton to the next step next season.

Barkley began on the bench but came on for what could be his last appearance for the club having failed to so far agree a new contract at Goodison Park despite an offer on the table.

". You know if you are seventh then you have to play Europa League football".

"I don't know", Koeman said.

"I'm not sure that was the case for every single one out there so that's perhaps something we need to address".

"I think the time Wenger has been the manager of Arsenal has been really successful - he did really a good job. That's what they will support".
