Ronald Koeman insists Everton can still secure Champions League place

Everton manager Ronald Koeman: "If you are sloppy they will punish you for that".

The 2-0 win over bottom side Sunderland, after goals from Idrissa Gana Gueye and Romelu Lukaku, sees the Toffees close the gap on fourth-placed Arsenal to six points.

After a well deserved win against an nearly certain to be relegated opponent let's see what we learned after Everton beat Sunderland 2-0 at Goodison Park. "I like to play for something until the end of the season".

Sunderland boss David Moyes, returning to the club where he spent 11 years, was clutching at straws when he suggested, had video technology not been available, they may have got away with Jermain Defoe's shot which crashed down off the crossbar but bounced short of the line.

Everton will be hoping to make up yet more ground on the top four when they travel to White Hart Lane to face Tottenham next weekend.

Everton's win means they are just three points off equalling their points total for each of the last two seasons and so, there is a palpable sign of progress under Koeman.

Koeman also praised striker Lukaku, who equalled the club record of 60 Premier League goals set by Duncan Ferguson, who is on his coaching staff.

Nintendo has said the Switch will support cards of up to 2 TB, but microSDXC cards of that size aren't available yet. The Switch advertises its 32 GB of internal memory, but the operating system takes up a bit of that.

The Belgian has proven to be Everton's most potent weapon for the past 18 months and Koeman believes he can still improve even further.

"Earlier in the season, I was a little bit inconsistent and I think I've got to a point now where I understand what I need to do, in games and preparing for games".

"It was the rebuilding of a football club and we went on to qualify for the Champions League with a very limited budget".

"I need those players, who we paid big money for a lot of them, to stand up and show what they can do".

"I am looking forward a good run".

"I was not trying to take the mickey out of Bournemouth, it was just more the enjoyment of the game". We have to find a place to score and move the ball well.

"I'm sure we have one to come".
