Everton survival route clear after Luton result as new threat emerges


Everton’s survival ambitions were handed a boost as Brentford thrashed relegation rivals Luton Town.

Thomas Frank’s side all but sealed their own survival as they inflicted the heaviest home defeat on the Hatters this season, running out 5-1 winners at Kenilworth Road.

The result meant Luton missed an opportunity to leapfrog Everton and Nottingham Forest and heap pressure on both teams ahead of their clash on Sunday afternoon. Instead, both sides now know a win at Goodison Park would take them a long way towards Premier League survival.

Luton remain comfortably in touch of the Blues and Forest, the two sides just above them. Their latest hammering, in a game they would have targeted for a positive result, would have struck a blow to their confidence and further damaged their goal difference, however.
