Everton (13/8 To Be Relegated) have breathed fresh hope into their chances of beating relegation after sealing a 1-0 win at home to Chelsea on Sunday.
The Toffees remain in the relegation zone, sitting 18th, but they have regained control of their own destiny thanks to the Goodison Park triumph.
Richarlison netted the only goal of the game, stealing possession from Cesar Azpilicueta before notching his ninth of the season.
It means Everton are now just two points adrift of 17th-placed Leeds United but they have a game in hand on the West Yorkshire club.
Frank Lampard said: “There are a lot of points fight for – we are still in the relegation zone, we have the extra game but we have to go with that same spirit in every match.
“The situation is clear, we need to perform at that level in our remaining games.”
