MARCO Silva said he was happy with his side performance in Friday night's 2-0 win over Burnley which briefly kept their Europa League hopes alive.

As it was, those hopes were distinguished on Saturday after Wolves beat Fulham 1-0.

First half goals from Richarlison and Seamus Coleman secured victory at Goodison Park and the Toffees boss is pleased with the way his side are finishing their campaign.

"It was a very good performance," said Silva. "In my opinion, the first 30 minutes we did a fantastic game, almost all the first half but the first 30 minutes we did really well.

"The players have been doing well.

"The last 10 games we have had eight clean sheets and have been playing offensive football. The players have been enjoying what they are doing and we have achieved three points again."

Despite an improved Burnley performance after the break, Silva said Everton were always in control.

"We were always in control. We deserved those two goals in that moment. I didn't really like the second half. We were in control but gave some chances to them. We could do better."

"Of course the second half was not so good. We have tried to control the game, not with the ball, not doing the same things.

"But we deserve really the three points. All credit to our players, they did well again."

refused to discuss Phil Jagielka's future at Everton as he insisted the club captain's late cameo in the 2-0 victory over Burnley was not for sentimental reasons.

Jagielka has been at the heart of Everton's defence for more than a decade but his contract is up at the end of a season where he has been limited to seven appearances.

The latest came in Everton's final fixture of the campaign at Goodison Park, where he received a rapturous reception after replacing Gylfi Sigurdsson in added-on time.

Silva revealed he met Jagielka this week and is planning another conversation with the 36-year-old in the coming days.

However, when asked to divulge the details of the discussion, Silva said: "What I said to him is to stay between me and him.

"I didn't talk just about the future, we talk about all season, about many things, at the end he is our captain, not just about what you want to do.

"But when I took that decision (to bring him on as a substitute) that was not because he will be here or not next season. I had one more to do."
