Former Everton striker Kevin Campbell has taken to social media to send a message to the club’s squad ahead of Sunday’s relegation decider.

Everton host Bournemouth for the final game of the season on Sunday and are two points clear of the drop, meaning that a win keeps the Blues in the Premier League.

With the club’s fate it its own hands, Kevin Campbell tweeted it was ‘all I wanted’ going into the final game of the campaign.

Last night’s 0-0 draw between Newcastle United and Leicester City means Everton remain two points ahead of both the Foxes and fellow strugglers Leeds United.

At full-time, Campbell tweeted: “Well it goes to the final day of the season and it’s in the hands of Everton that’s all I wanted weeks ago so deliver and you stay up! COYB”

Campbell tweet bolsters Everton support as final game approaches

While Everton host Bournemouth, Leicester City welcome West Ham United and Leeds are at home to Spurs, while bottom-placed Southampton are already relegated.

Indeed, in a tightly packed bottom-half of the table, Everton occupy 17th place on 33 points, one place ahead of Leicester on 31 points, who are above Leeds on goal difference alone.

The Foxes have the best goal difference with -18, while Everton have -24 and Leeds United -27, exemplifying how close the fight for survival is.

Everton have their fate in their own hands and a win against a Bournemouth side with nothing to play for keeps Sean Dyche’s side in the division.

The Toffees will be hopeful that Dominic Calvert-Lewin will be available after limping off during the 1-1 against Wolves last week, though there is no update on his fitness yet.

No doubt the Goodison crowd will be in full voice on Sunday.
