FULL-TIME

Everton 0-1 Tottenham

Everton players are now doing a lap of honour with some of them carrying their kids around the pitch. Been a disappointing end to a frustrating season for many fans, I'm sure, but they are greeting the players warmly for their efforts. Always next season, eh?

That's it from me, you can follow full reaction to all today's results, including Hull's relegation, in our main

Premier League text commentary. Safe journey home if you've been at the game.

FULL-TIME

Everton 0-1 Tottenham

Spurs striker Harry Kane: "The most important thing was the win. We knew Stoke away at Liverpool would be tough for them, we wanted fifth and we got it. I'm delighted to get on scoresheet. There's no qualifying game for the Europa league and finishing fifth is not bad anyway. We got to the League Cup final too so it's been a productive season."

FULL-TIME

Everton 0-1 Tottenham

Spurs players and their fans jubilant. Europa League it is and they get a proper rest this summer too. Crystal Palace beat Swansea 1-0 meaning Everton slip into the bottom half of the table for the first time since 2006.

FULL-TIME

Everton 0-1 Tottenham

All over. Relatively easy for Spurs in the end,. They finish fifth, while Everton end up 11th.

Everton 0-1 Tottenham

Everton's Steven Naismith is through on goal but his effort is blocked. Turns out it was offside anyway.

Everton 0-1 Tottenham

Three minutes of added time at Goodison.

Everton 0-1 Tottenham

With Crystal Palace leading 1-0 at home to Swansea, Everton will finish 11th unless they can find a goal.

Everton 0-1 Tottenham

Stoke are now beating Liverpool 6-1. Leon Osman not impressed by the attentions of Ryan Mason. Time running out for an Everton equaliser.

SUBSTITUTIONS

Everton 0-1 Tottenham

Brendan Galloway off as Sylvain Distin comes on for his last Everton appearance after a seven-year stay at the club. A great reception from the Goodison faithful. Andros Townsend then replaces Harry Kane.

YELLOW CARD

Everton 0-1 Tottenham

Tottenham's Ryan Mason is now booked for a challenge on James McCarthy.

YELLOW CARD

Everton 0-1 Tottenham

Everton skipper Phil Jagielka is yellow-carded for scything down Ryan Mason. This game has not been dirty at all but Jan Vertonghen is not happy about that challenge and it's getting a bit heated in the Merseyside sun.

YELLOW CARD

Everton 0-1 Tottenham

Christian Eriksen is getting on the ball more and more now, which looks ominous for Everton. Tottenham are good at scoring late goals, so don't bet against them adding another. Tottenham substitute Benjamin Stambouli goes into the book for not retreating from an Everton free-kick.

Everton 0-1 Tottenham

Muhamed Besic is tripped by Erik Lamela, Gareth Barry clips the Everton free-kick into the area but John Stones's header is wide of the goal.

Everton 0-1 Tottenham

Everton win a free-kick near the corner of the penalty area. Leon Osman delivers, it's poor and Eric Dier heads clear. The second effort is better but it's flicked on and Tottenham work it out of defence easily.

SUBSTITUTION

Everton 0-1 Tottenham

Better from Everton. Romelu Lukaku cuts into the right-side of the penalty area. But his effort across goal is too high. Steven Naismith comes on for Kevin Mirallas.

Everton 0-1 Tottenham

Steven Gerrard has just scored for Liverpool. They are still 5-1 down at Stoke and I'm not sure it will have any bearing on the Europa League permutations. Spurs still in fifth as Nacer Chadli's shot is deflected over the top. Corner comes to nothing.

Everton 0-1 Tottenham

Alistair Mann

BBC Match of the Day commentator at Goodison Park

"Tottenham fans are cheering 'ole' which tells you how much they are enjoying their trip to Goodison Park."

Everton 0-1 Tottenham

Everton work it out to the right where Seamus Coleman lets the ball run under his feet. I'm not trying to be downbeat on their build-up play but it is breaking down an awful lot.

Everton 0-1 Tottenham

Everton win their second corner of the game as the Gwladys Street end finds its voice. Muhamed Besic finds the top tier from a follow-up shot. Not great.

Everton 0-1 Tottenham

Harry Kane shows his desire by winning the ball back ahead of Everton's Gareth Barry and when it's worked to Christian Eriksen, the Dane's shot is deflected over for a corner. Spurs are just a bit quicker today. Fazio then heads a second corner wide.

Everton 0-1 Tottenham

Everton are definitely quicker to press the Spurs midfield this half. The out ball from the hosts defence is still lacking a bit of accuracy, though.

Everton 0-1 Tottenham

Everton left-back Brendan Galloway growing in confidence now as he collects Leon Osman's cross field pass. But Muhamed Besic's cross is too deep for Romelu Lukaku.

Everton 0-1 Tottenham

Leon Osman
Empics

According to out friends at Opta, Spurs are outdoing Everton in terms of distance covered. The visitors have covered 75.5km between them compared to the hosts 71.5km. Everton are definitely applying themselves more since the break, though.

Everton 0-1 Tottenham

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy looking pensive in the stands. Wonder what the future holds in the Spurs transfer market?

SUBSTITUTION

Everton 0-1 Tottenham

Moussa Dembele is coming off for Spurs now. French midfielder Benjamin Stambouli is his replacement. Looks like the game might be a bit tighter now, but Dembele appears to have an injury as he applies ice to his leg.

Everton 0-1 Tottenham

Brendan Galloway steams through the heart of the Spurs defence, but Hugo Lloris beats him to the loose ball as it just runs away from the 19-year-old. Great run.

Everton 0-1 Tottenham

Everton's full-backs Brendan Galloway and Seamus COleman have been pretty quiet in an attacking sense, but they are getting further forward now. Leon Osman fires a volley wide but better intent from the hosts.

CLOSE!

Everton 0-1 Tottenham

Substitute Muhamed Besic is straight into the action, picking up a loose ball on the edge of the box and firing just past Hugo Lloris's right-hand post. Close.

KICK-OFF

Everton 0-1 Tottenham

Players back out and Bosnian and Hercegovina international Muhamed Besic replaces Ross Barkley in Everton's midfield. Spurs get us under way.

HALF-TIME

Everton 0-1 Tottenham

Massive cheer at Goodison when the Stoke-Liverpool score was read out. Liverpool five goals in arrears. At half-time. In Steven Gerrard's last game. That game is

live right here.

HALF-TIME

Everton 0-1 Tottenham

Looks like that warning Mauricio Pochettino gave to his Spurs players about their futures recently is having an effect. "Nobody is sure that they are staying at the club," he said. Good man-management.

HALF-TIME

Could be worse, though. Imagine if you're a Liverpool fan today. 5-0 down at Stoke at half-time. Ouch. Meanwhile, Southampton are 1-0 down at Manchester City.

So as it stands, Spurs will finish fifth, Liverpool sixth and Southampton seventh.

HALF-TIME

Everton 0-1 Tottenham

And that's the last action of the half. A few boos as Everton players head off the pitch. Not been great so far, it has to be said.

Everton 0-1 Tottenham

Into stoppage time, Everton's Gareth Barry clips the ball into Kevin Mirallas, Ross Barkley works it out to the right and Seamus Coleman's cross is tipped away by Hugo Lloris. The hosts best effort so far.

Everton 0-1 Tottenham

Kevin Mirallas is played in behind the Tottenham defence towards the left-hand side of the penalty area, he dribbles around Spurs keeper Hugo Lloris, and tries to cross into an empty net but it's just over. Decent effort. He's been Everton's liveliest players so far.

Stoke 5-0 up against Liverpool now. Great send-off for Steven Gerrard eh?

Everton 0-1 Tottenham

Great through-ball by Christian Eriksen towards Harry Kane, which is cut out, but Tottenham are swarming all over Everton in midfield. Romelu Lukaku appearing isolated so far. Stoke 4-0 up against Liverpool now.

Everton 0-1 Tottenham

In the race for the Europa League spots, or fifth,

Liverpool are getting beaten 3-0 by Stoke. Advantage Spurs for now.

Everton 0-1 Tottenham

Average positions
BBC

The average positions of the two teams tells its own story. Spurs camped in Everton's half.

Alistair Mann

BBC Match of the Day commentator at Goodison Park

"Tottenham are finding this too easy for Everton's liking."

Everton 0-1 Tottenham

Everton's Ross Barkley loses the ball now and Harry Kane is onto it but Phil Jagielka blocks his England team-mate's shot. Ross Barkley - great talent but frustrating at times. Wish he'd shoot more for a start.
