Everton will be in the Premier League next season after coming back from two goals down to beat Crystal Palace 3-2 in a remarkable turnaround victory on Thursday.
After losing last time out to Brentford by the same scoreline Frank Lampard's side had a second opportunity to secure the two points they required to guarantee safety, which they took in dramatic fashion.
Everton got off to a disastrous start as Jean-Philippe Mateta and Jordan Ayew gave Palace a two-goal lead, but the hosts hit back with second-half goals from Michael Keane and Richarlison, before Dominic Calvert-Lewin headed in the all-important winner with five minutes remaining.
It was the first time Everton had come back from a two-goal half-time deficit to win a Premier League match, at the 75th attempt, and it means they will start next season as a top-flight club for a 69th consecutive campaign.
Ashley Barnes' first league goal of the season, from the penalty spot, put the Clarets ahead on the stroke of half-time, and although Emiliano Buendia equalised early in the second half, a standout display by Nick Pope kept Villa at bay.
It means that they have all but secured a third-placed finish. The Blues have 71 points, three more than Tottenham Hotspur with Chelsea, who host relegated Watford in their final match, boasting a superior goal difference.
