Coleman admits it would be a "massive disappointment" to miss out on European football

Republic of Ireland captain Seamus Coleman says Everton's disappointing home form could be costly in their bid for European football. 

The Toffees are now without a win in four Premier League games following Monday night's 0-0 draw away to Brighton.

It was probably a point gained for Everton, who were without Dominic Calvert-Lewin and failed to create much going forward.

Carlo Ancelotti's side are in 8th place, seven points off the Champions League places but they do have a game in hand over their rivals.

Everton will be back in action on Friday with a home game against Tottenham, who they beat on the opening weekend of the season.

Coleman accepted it wasn't the worst result against Brighton but said it has been frustrating to drop points elsewhere and not take advantage of the teams around them not winning either.

"It’s a point away from home. Obviously we wanted to win the game but Brighton are a very good side and they made it difficult for us," the Ireland skipper told Sky Sports.

"Our disappointment comes from maybe not picking up three points against Palace (last Monday) as you could argue this is a good point away from home.

"We don’t want to be harping on about injuries – there are plenty of other teams doing that – it’s part of a Premier League season. Injuries happen and unfortunately, we’ve lost a few players.

"This is no disrespect but against your Fulhams and Newcastles at home (games which Everton lost) that’s where our disappointment comes.

"It would be a massive disappointment (to miss out on Europe). We’ve been given opportunities by other results this season and we just needed to look after ourselves and we’d be in a different position."

Everton still have to play Aston Villa twice before the end of the season and they also have games against Arsenal, West Ham, Sheffield United, Wolves and Manchester City.

Ancelotti expects to have Calvert-Lewin back for Friday's game against Spurs at Goodison Park along with Allan and Andre Gomes but Yerry Mina limped off in the second half of the draw with Brighton.
