Lescott: Everton deserve to be playing in Europe

He said: “I think it was very important that we got a result from that game because it keeps the pressure on the people above and they have got to keep winning to keep the pressure on us, so we are confident going into the last eight games and hopefully we can get a few more results before the end of the season.

“You look at a club like Everton and they deserve to be playing in Europe, so if we can achieve that this season then we will be more than happy.”
