Moyes admits Everton top four hopes now over

Everton boss David Moyes says their top four chances are over after defeat at Sunderland.

The Toffees went into the game just four points adrift of fourth-placed Arsenal, but tonight find themselves five behind Chelsea, who have two games in hand after being leap-frogged by the Gunners.

Asked how defeat on Wearside would affect their chances of closing that gap, Moyes said: "We won't get a top-four position. Every game is becoming must-win, so I can't see that happening.

"It was an important game for us and we weren't able to take any points from it."
