Everton beat Brentford 1-0 to avoid relegation

Idrissa Gueye celebrates his goal against Brentford at Goodison Park
Idrissa Gueye’s superb strike at 60 minutes against Brentford at Goodison Park on Saturday was enough to save Everton from relegation.
Sean Dyche’s side have garnered 35 points and sit in 15th place after the victory at home and will play in the Premier League next season.
It was a low tempo start to the encounter though, with both sides depending on set pieces and creating very little from open play.
The Bees appeared the more likely side to break the deadlock with only a fantastic block from Jarrad Branthwaite preventing them from taking the lead.

Both sides displayed serious defensive tactics making it difficult for their attackers to break even, with the game failing to burst into life in the first half and neither side even managing a shot on target.

Dwight McNeil came close to opening the scoring just eight minutes into the second half, with his long range effort coming back off the crossbar.

The Toffees did take the lead minutes later though, when Idrissa Gueye pounced on a loose ball to fire his side into the lead with their first effort on target.
Brentford pushed for an equaliser, with Keane Lewis-Potter seeing his stinging effort saved by Jordan Pickford.

Everton, meanwhile, were happy to hold onto what they had and remained a threat on the break, with James Garner rattling the bar.
