Alex Neil set to stay on as Everton inflict more misery on relegated Norwich

Everton 3 - Norwich City 0

Alex Neil's future seems certain to be at Norwich. The Canaries ended their season with a disappointing 3-0 defeat by Everton at Goodison Park four days after their relegation from the Barclays Premier League was sealed.

There has been speculation about whether Neil would stay on as manager but he confirmed that now "looks likely".

The 34-year-old said: "I'll have more discussions tomorrow but it looks likely at the moment that I'll be here for next season."

The Toffees had won only five Premier League games at Goodison Park all season, which contributed significantly to Roberto Martinez's sacking on Thursday.

But they always looked like making it six once James McCarthy scored the opener in the 19th minute. Leighton Baines added a second from the penalty spot just before half-time and three minutes after the break Kevin Mirallas tapped in the third.
