James Rodriguez and Jerry Mina’s Everton picked up a point away to Brighton and continued their good run away from home this season, however, they moved a little further away from the places to enter next year’s European competitions.
In order for Everton to qualify for Europe, they will have to correct the mistakes made and improve the offensive dynamics lacking in recent matches. Yerry Mina left the field after 54 minutes due to injury and James Rodriguez completed the ninety minutes.
Everton, with 48 points, is in eighth place in the Premier League, four points behind sixth-placed Liverpool (52 points) and Tottenham, their next rival, in seventh place (49 points), which makes this match to be played on April 16 a true championship final due to the importance of the classification.
