Cape Town - Everton skipper Seamus Coleman says the target this season is to finish in seventh spot and the Europa League places.

First-half goals from Kurt Zouma and Bernard ensured Everton picked up a win at the London stadium on Saturday.

Zouma headed the Toffees ahead from a corner in the fifth minute and Brazilian winger Bernard tapped in his first Premier League goal thanks to more poor defending just after the half-hour mark.

Everton climbed to ninth with their second win in succession.

Everton skipper Seamus Coleman told the club's website: "We want to finish strongly and keep aiming for that seventh place.

"We now want to keep building. We want to be focused and need to keep going like this."
