Leicester City manager Dean Smith said his team’s best performance came too late to save them from relegation.
“That was our best performance today,” Smith told Sky Sports. “We deserved a win. We put some pressure on [Everton] but it wasn't to be.
“When I came here with eight games to go I thought we probably needed 11 points. We’ve fallen two short of that with nine – and it ended up being 11 points.
"I didn’t know their [Everton] score. I didn’t want to know. All I was concentrating on was trying to win this game. You hear things around the ground. I just wanted to make sure we did our bit and we did that.
“There will be a review from people who have been here all season and will understand it. Mine was a remit to come in for seven weeks and eight games and try to keep the club in the Premier League. Unfortunately I’ve fallen a little bit short.”
Allardyce regrets errors
"Well, it’s professional suicide,” he said. “You prepare for a game, you get the players down here, put some tactics into play, look at the opposition’s strengths and weaknesses and play the game as best you possibly can.
“The huge errors that you make, Harry Kane’s going to take full advantage of. We messed up again, tried to fight our way back, messed up again in a big way."
