The Toffees had a Sylvain Distin goal ruled out in a tense clash as the two sides cancelled each other out in a frenetic but goalless clash.

Moyes' side are now five points behind Chelsea and Tottenham, who occupy fourth and fifth positions respectively with two games of the season remaining.

Everton have a home game against West Ham to come next Sunday before finishing their campaign off at Stamford Bridge.

But Moyes was left upset with Distin's effort, which was disallowed by referee Michael Oliver for a foul in the area.

"It was a goal," the Scot told Sky Sports. "Their goalkeeper runs into our player so the goal should stand. I can understand if our player ran into their keeper, you can give a foul for that, but the goalie ran into him, so it was a goal.

"We're still in there (for a European spot). We picked up a point today. We had a really difficult run it, which everybody kept reminding me.

"We've got two games to go and we'll keep pushing to try and make Europe if we can."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
