Everton struggled to create clear-cut chances despite having much of the possession, and the game was settled in first-half stoppage time.

A Leighton Baines mistake allowed Sunderland the chance to attack, and Stephane Sessegnon fired home low from the edge of the area.

The defeat left Everton five points behind Chelsea in fourth, and the west London side have two games in hand on Moyes' men.

"I don't think we can qualify now," Moyes admitted.

"We had to keep winning and keep on going, and even if we did keep on winning we would still have been outsiders.

"This defeat means we have to put an end to all that.

"We can just keep winning games and who knows. We will try and finish in a Europa League position."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
