Everton Will Have to Break 60-Point Barrier to Secure European Qualification, Says Moyes: The Daily EPL

Everton manager David Moyes has set a target of reaching 60 points to secure European qualification.

Everton currently has eight matches remaining this Premier League season for an opportunity to win 24 points. Everton sit in sixth position with 51 points, so nine points from their next eight games seem very do-able.

First up for Everton, though, is a match against Tottenham Hotspur this Sunday. Plus Everton still has to play Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool.

  1. They’re going to need closer to 70 really. It’s a bit of a stretch to make the CL, but if they do beat Spurs they’re right in the thick of it.

  2. This doesn’t make a whole lot of sense – because of the way the Cups have worked out this year, only 5th will get a Europa League spot, which means Everton will have to finish higher than one of the big London teams. Just targeting 60pts is not remotely enough.

  3. Chelsea, Spurs, Arsenal and Everton are fighting for the 2 Champions League spots (after United and City) and 1 Europa League spot. Some might put Liverpool in the mix for the Europa League but they have a slim chance because they need to overtake 2 of the above teams.

    Arsenal has the easiest schedule left so they should get into the Europa League at least. Chelsea has the toughest schedule and fixture pileup which could hurt their chances. This is where the interest is going to be strongest (the relegation battle also) till the last day since United all but have the title wrapped up.
