Everton secured their Premier League status with a second-half comeback where they came from two goals down to beat Crystal Palace 3-2 at Goodison Park.
Everton, who will now continue their 68-year stay in the top flight, initially were at the brink of losing the match after Palace’s Jean-Philippe Mateta and Jordan Ayew scored twice in the first half.
Michael Keane sparked the fightback nine minutes into the second half before Richarlison levelled 15 minutes from time.
Then Dominic Calvert-Lewin, who scored his first goal since August against Brentford on Sunday during an injury-hit season, headed in the third goal five minutes from time to spark chaotic scenes as home supporters flooded onto the field in relief.
Conceding from set-pieces has been a consistent failing all season for Everton under two different managers.
The result avoided the kind of final-day nerves that Everton fans had to experience in 1998 and 1994, where the team also preserved their Premier League status.
