After ensuring their survival, Everton's Conor Coady described it as the hardest season of his life.
"Relief. It's becoming a bit of a thing, we don't want to make it a thing, we need to improve and reset. It's been the hardest season of my life, and finally, we're there now. A lot of relief. We had a plan, we were focusing on ourselves. I actually thought we played really well considering the circumstances. You don't want to be part of this giant of a football club going down. We reiterated that all season. We're not, but now what we've got to do is not make this a common theme. This club has to rise and get better now," Conor Coady said after the match as quoted by Premier League.
