A Europa League spot is within grasp as long as Everton don鈥檛 suffer a horrific collapse between now and the end of the season.
The Blues are currently level on points with sixth-placed Arsenal and three off of Manchester United in fifth, with both teams boasting two games in hand over the Merseyside outfit.
But with United having won the EFL Cup and one of the top-six set to win the FA Cup, the final European spot will go to the team that finishes seventh in the Premier League.
And that position is all but secured for Everton, who boast a 10-point advantage over eighth-placed West Bromwich Albion.
Yet the Blues will still be hoping to apply some pressure on those above them in the final weeks of the campaign with Arsenal and United, and a top-six finish, not out of sight.
SATURDAY APRIL 15TH: BURNLEY (H)
Ronald Koeman鈥檚 men first face a Burnley side that have taken just four points from an available 48 away from home in the Premier League this season.
The Clarets have drawn their last two away games 0-0, though those games were against relegation battlers Sunderland and Middlesbrough.
Everton - having won their last seven home league games - should have enough to see off Sean Dyche鈥檚 resilient side and avenge their late defeat at Turf Moor earlier this season.
SATURDAY APRIL 22ND: WEST HAM UNITED (A)
After that, Everton take a trip to the Olympic Stadium for the first time to play against West Ham United.
The Hammers are eight points clear of the relegation zone but a recent five-game losing streak suggests that they are not completely assured of safety.
Slaven Bilic鈥檚 men have only won two of their seven home games in 2017, conceding 13 goals, and so Romelu Lukaku may hope to further his cause for this season鈥檚 Premier League Golden Boot with a few goals in Straford, having scored in all of his last seven appearances against West Ham.
A goal would put him level with Robin van Persie for the best goalscoring run against a single opponent in the Premier League, the Dutchman netting in eight consecutive games against Stoke City. Challenge set.
SATURDAY APRIL 30TH: CHELSEA (H)
The visit of champions-elect Chelsea awaits in the final game of April.
A tough fixture no doubt, but Everton will be buoyed by their excellent home form under Koeman - having only lost one of 16 league games, that due to a 95th-minute goal in the Merseyside derby.
Everton, too, will hope to make amends for November鈥檚 5-0 drubbing at Stamford Bridge and they can go going toe-to-toe with the league leaders if they play to their best.
SATURDAY MAY 6TH: SWANSEA CITY (A)
Swansea City currently find themselves five league games without a win with the lift of Paul Clement鈥檚 appointment having since levelled out.
Everton will hope Swansea are still stuck in a rut when they travel to the Liberty Stadium. The Swans have not won a league match since they beat Burnley 3-2 at the start of March, and they have picked up only one point from their last five matches, scoring just one goal in their last four.
Swansea did manage a point in the reverse fixture though thanks to a penalty from Gylfi Sigurdsson, who has been involved in 51% of his team鈥檚 goal this season. Stopping the Icelandic international seems to be the key if they are to beat the South Wales club for the first time since March 2014.
FRIDAY MAY 12TH: WATFORD (H)
Everton鈥檚 penultimate fixture sees them visit Walter Mazzarri鈥檚 Watford, who are challenging for a top-half finish though they are also only nine points above the relegation zone.
The 10th-placed Hornets should comfortably retain their top-flight status, even despite a recent 4-0 thrashing at Tottenham Hotspur.
Despite Lukaku鈥檚 brace, Watford won the reverse fixture 3-2 ?beating Everton for the first time since March 1987 in the process - and Everton are chasing a first win over them since 2007, but with the game at Goodison ?Koeman and co. will be confident of three points.
SUNDAY MAY 21ST: ARSENAL (A)
The final game of the season is difficult one for Everton as they go to the Emirates Stadium looking for their first ever win there.
Arsenal haven鈥檛 lost at home to the Blues in all competitions since 1996, losing 18 of 22 meetings there since Andrei Kanchelskis provided a late winner at Highbury 21 years ago.
Arsene Wenger has never lost at home to Everton, and how the Blues would love to change that in what could be their last ever game against him.
The Gunners鈥?home form is much stronger than their form on the road though, so it will be a difficult ask.
But if both teams continue at their current form, Arsenal having lost their last four away games in the Premier League for the first time under Wenger, Everton could hope to be in a position to leapfrog the North London outfit with a last day win.
MANCHESTER UNITED RUN-IN
Sunday April 16th: Chelsea (h)
Sunday April 23rd: Burnley (a)
Thursday April 27th: Manchester City (a)
Sunday April 30th: Swansea City (h)
Sunday May 7th: Arsenal (a)
Saturday May 13th: Tottenham Hotspur (a)
Sunday May 21st: Crystal Palace (h)
TBA: Southampton (a)
Everton are unlikely to catch up to fifth-placed United, who are already three points ahead and have two games in hand, but given United鈥檚 fixture schedule - it isn鈥檛 impossible. Jose Mourinho鈥檚 men also seem to be moving their focus to the Europa League, with the prize of a direct route into next season鈥檚 Champions League group stages on offer to the winners, but Everton will likely need to earn results against Chelsea and Arsenal - while hoping United lose to the same teams - to bridge the gap.
Monday April 17th: Middlesbrough (a)
Wednesday April 26th: Leicester City (h)
Sunday April 30th: Tottenham Hotspur (a)
Sunday May 7th: Manchester United (h)
Saturday May 13th: Stoke City (a)
Sunday May 21st: Everton (h)
TBA: Southampton (a)
TBA: Sunderland (h)
Though Arsenal could open up a six-point gap on the Blues by winning their two games in hand on them, their poor form of late opens up the possibility of Everton catching them. The Gunners have a number of tough games to overcome between now and the end of the season and in their current state, Arsene Wenger鈥檚 men are fully capable of dropping points to the likes of Southampton and Middlesbrough away from home. Everton will hope they are in reaching distance of Arsenal come the final day.
WEST BROMWICH ALBION RUN-IN
Sunday April 16th: Liverpool (h)
Saturday April 29th: Leicester City (h)
Saturday May 6th: Burnley (a)
Saturday May 13th: Chelsea (h)
Sunday May 21st: Swansea City (a)
TBA: Manchester City (a)
With the Baggies playing three of the top-four in their final six, they would need a remarkable run of form - plus Everton to simultaneously hit a rough patch - in order to claw back a 10-point gap. That鈥檚 without their goal difference, which is -2 compared to Everton鈥檚 +22, coming into it. It鈥檚 not happening.
