Everton are not going to be playing in Europe next season. However, they are not mathematically eliminated from that possibility juuuuust yet. If they are going make it, they need all nine points from their final three games while hoping that Burnley loses out. That being said, this team needs to go “all out” with their tactics. Goals need to be scored and some level of creativity must be on display. That is something that has been missing since Sam Allardyce was put in charge.
