Striker Kevin Mirallas ensured David Moyes departed Goodison Park for the final time as Everton manager in perfect circumstances.
The Belgium striker scored both goals to provide a fitting send-off for the Toffees boss - heading for Manchester United in the summer - after he has stood on the touchline in the blue corner of Merseyside for 11 years.

The sixth successive home league victory against a West Ham side who seemed to have no intention of spoiling the party also guaranteed Everton finished above Liverpool for the second successive season in and the first time in the top flight since 1937.
In his programme notes, club captain Phil Neville, who is leaving Everton as a player this summer, said he had never met a harder working man than Moyes - which is some tribute from a man who spent 11 years with Sir Alex Ferguson at United.
