Sean Dyche’s side will survive relegation with a win - but there are scenarios in which they can lose or draw and still remain in the top-flight.

Speaking on BBC Radio 5 Live ahead of the game, McCann gave a rousing speech to fire up the Everton faithful: “Think about every kid who’s ever bought a season ticket, who gives week after week and sees the team lose but doesn’t give up faith.

“Think of all the dinner ladies who are cooking all the food for you after the matches. Think about all the ticket people working in the office who will lose jobs if you get relegated.

“Think of how much it’s going to cost the club and the city if we go down. You have to do it for those people.”

Bournemouth face Everton at Goodison Park on the final day. The Cherries avoided relegation themselves after an incredible mid-season comeback under manager Gary O’Neil.

Whilst Leicester welcome West Ham United to the King Power stadium and Leeds host Tottenham Hotspur on the final day. Both sides need to win to have any chance of overtaking Everton.
