Everton 1-0 Derby
A solitary goal was enough for Everton to claim all three points at home to Derby County.
Leon Osman’s seventh goal of the season kept Everton in the hunt for a Champions League spot.
Against already relegated Derby it took a low drive from midfielder Osman in the second half to claim the win that cut Liverpool’s lead in fourth spot to three over the Toffees.
For Derby this was almost a triumph after 27 league matches without a victory. They may have suffered the quickest relegation from the Premier League but they showed heart and spirit throughout.
