Everton missed the chance to move into fifth in the Premier League after being held to a goalless draw at West Ham United.
The Toffees needed all three points to leap-frog Manchester United, but they could not find a way through against a stubborn Hammers side at the Olympic Stadium.
At the bottom, Middlesbrough look all but down following a 4-0 hammering at the hands of Bournemouth.
They were behind less than two-minutes into the game when Josh King’s converted to carry on his good run of form. Benik Afobe doubled their lead on 16-minutes and Boro were reduced to ten-men just moments later when Gaston Ramirez picked up a second yellow-card.
Things did not get much better after the break as Marc Pugh and Charlie Daniels made it 4-0.

Boro’s day was made all the worse as they are now seven points off safety as both Hull City and Swansea City both claimed big win.
Fourth from bottom Hull beat Watford 2-0 with ten-man at The KCOM Stadium.
Oumar Niasse was given a straight red just 25-minutes in, but Marco Silva’s side managed to take an impressive win.
Lazar Markovic headed home just after the hour before Sam Clucas fired home on 71-minutes to seal the win.
They remain just two-points off the drop-zone, however, as Swansea also win as they claimed a 2-0 success over Stoke City at The Liberty Stadium.
The three points came courtesy of a goal in each half from Fernando Llorente and Tom Carroll – although things could have been different if Marko Arnautovic had converted his penalty just 60 seconds prior to Carroll claiming Swansea’s second.
