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."
