Everton full-back Seamus Coleman is still hopeful about his side finishing the season in fourth spot, following their 2-0 win over Manchester United at the weekend.

Goals from Leighton Baines and Kevin Mirallas at Goodison Park helped the Toffees to consolidate fifth spot in the Premier League with 69 points from 35 games, just a point adrift of fourth-placed Arsenal.

And with three rounds of matches still left to be played in the league this season, Coleman is keeping up hopes of a slip up from the Gunners, which will enable the Merseyside club to pip Arsene Wenger’s side to the fourth and final Champions League spot.

"We just move on now wanting to finish the season strongly and hopefully we get that fourth spot", the defender told his club’s official site.


"I still think there will be a slip up along the way and hopefully we can capitalise on that. It's been a funny season and there's still three games to go, so hopefully we can sneak in towards the end."

Everton will next lock horns with Southampton on Saturday before facing Manchester City a week later.

Roberto Martinez’s side will then conclude their season with a game against Hull City on 11th May.
