Everton rounded off their home campaign in style with a 2-0 Premier League victory over Burnley at Goodison Park, reports Goal.

Needing a victory to stay in the hunt for a seventh and potential Europa League qualification, Marco Silva’s side were two up inside 20 minutes.

Following Ben Mee’s own goal, Seamus Coleman capitalised upon Tom Heaton’s error to head home a second.

Ashley Barnes had an effort disallowed for offside and Johan Gudmundsson passed up Burnley’s best chance after the interval, as Everton cruised to a comfortable win in their final home game of the season.

Everton made a dominant start – Gylfi Sigurdsson seeing a goalbound volley blocked before he teed up Richarlison, whose attempt was turned wide by Mee.
