Everton are looking for a Champions League place in the Premier League. Brazilian Richarlison scored the only goal of the match against Southampton in the ninth minute.
It was the third game in a row that marked the bronze.
Everton remain in seventh place, but are only two points above the top four, which gives them a place in the Champions League, and they also have one game less played than the competition.
Southampton remains in 14th place.
