David Moyes: Targeting farewell victory against Chelsea on Sunday

The Toffees will surpass their previous best haul of 65 by a point if they defeat the Europa League winners at Stamford Bridge.

Moyes said: "We finished the West Ham game off very well last week. That has put us in a league position where we can't go any further up or any further down.

"That is great, but we want to try to get a record points total if we can - that would be our final goal.

"It is a good game to finish off with, and it is not a game where there is nothing there."

With only the top five Premier League sides earning European qualification, Everton will not be involved in either continental competition next season, and Moyes admits that it is a big disappointment.

"In the year we qualified for the Champions League (2005, when they finished fourth to earn a place in the competition's qualifying rounds), the points we have (this season) would have been enough to get us there," he said.

"But we don't even make Europa League football this year, which is really tough on us.

"It was something we really wanted to drive for, to get back to European football.

"I thought it was something we needed as a football club, so we are disappointed to miss out on that."

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
