Saints equalled their 2003 Premier League points total as two own goals gave them a 2-0 win over Champions League chasing Everton at St Mary’s.

Antolin Alcaraz headed Saints into the lead less than a minute into the game before Seamus Coleman directed a header into his own net later in the first half.

Victory over high flying Everton moved Saints on to 52 points, the same mark they achieved in 2002/03 when they bagged their highest Premier League era finish of eighth.

Everton's hopes of a top-four finish now look remote.

Already a point behind fourth-placed Arsenal, the Toffees arrived on the south coast knowing a fourth successive away win was required in order to keep their charge for Champions League qualification alive.

However, first-half own goals from Antolin Alcaraz and Seamus Coleman cost Everton dear as Southampton secured a deserved 2-0 win.

The visitors were fighting an uphill battle after just 53 seconds at St Mary's as a rusty-looking Alcaraz directed past goalkeeper Tim Howard, with Coleman following suit after 31 minutes to double Saints' advantage.

Everton attempted to claw their way back but few of their fans could argue with the result, which would have been worse was it not for wayward finishing and referee Michael Oliver waving away several penalty appeals.

Rickie Lambert - one of several English players impressing in front of England manager Roy Hodgson - also clipped the post with a 25-yard free-kick as Southampton ended a three-match winless streak and handed Arsenal the opportunity to move four points clear of Everton with victory over Newcastle.

The defeat brought Martinez's men crashing down after last weekend's 2-0 victory against Manchester United.

That result saw their former manager David Moyes lose his job at the Old Trafford helm but also came at a cost for the Toffees, who lost key men Kevin Mirallas and Sylvain Distin to injury.

Their replacements Gerard Deulofeu and Alcaraz are by no means slouches, but the latter's rustiness cost his side with less than a minute on the clock.

In just his fourth league start of the season, the Paraguay defender appeared flustered by the attention of Sam Gallagher and rather comically turned a Lambert cross past Howard.

Alcaraz's moment of madness was the worst possible start for Everton, yet they did not collapse and Coleman soon darted down the flank and crossed for Romelu Lukaku.

The shot that followed, though, was poor and it took until the 15th minute for Martinez's side to muster a first shot on target, and even then Artur Boruc easily dealt with Deulofeu's tame strike.

Gallagher's ignored appeal for handball against John Stones was all Saints had to show during the spell that followed their goal, although they were by now in control.

Jack Cork got away a shot as an injury to Steven Naismith temporarily reduced Everton to 10 men, with the Scotland international returning just in time to see former Rangers team-mate Steven Davis miss a glorious chance after a fine Lambert cut back.

The Toffees were getting little joy in attack, with Nathaniel Clyne particularly impressive in keeping Deulofeu quiet.

Leighton Baines whipped in a threatening free-kick on the one occasion the Saints right-back lost the duel with the Barcelona loanee, although the cross evaded his team-mates and Saints capitalised.

Not only adept at the back, Clyne is a fine attacking option and bombed forward before fizzing over a wonderful cross that was just too high for Stones to head clear, leaving the unsighted Coleman to helplessly direct into his own goal.

Lovren powered a header at Howard soon after as Saints looked for a third, and after Lukaku directed over Boruc's goal, referee Oliver rejected vocal handball appeals against Stones after the Everton defender handled an Adam Lallana cross.

Naismith had handball appeals of his own waved away in first-half stoppage time and continued to prove a nuisance when played resumed, with Cork doing well to block wide his effort on goal.

The Saints midfielder had an attempt of his own at the other end and Lallana struck at Howard, who was relieved to see a 25-yard Lambert free-kick clip the post and go wide.

Substitute Leon Osman joined team-mate Gareth Barry in the book after being adjudged to have taken a tumble in the box under a challenge from Lovren, before fellow replacement Aiden McGeady's cross was headed straight at Boruc by Lukaku.

Referee Oliver was again the focus as Shaw and Lallana saw penalty appeals waved away after apparent handballs by Coleman and Stones, before a rather relieved Boruc saw a Baines cross dip just wide.

Everton were attacking in numbers in an attempt to reduce the deficit and had a spot-kick appeal of their own rejected after James McCarthy claimed he was impeded by Lovren, although their attacking mind-set was leaving gaps at the back.

Lallana showed wonderful skill to burst to the byline but Lambert was unable to convert late on, while Howard did well to deny substitute James Ward-Prowse.

Ha! Yes, I thought Platt's views were somewhat one-sided, Warrens. Even the way he spoke up that offside (several times) gave away his agenda, namely:

"I'm for Everton here because, as a former Spud, I don't want The Arsenal to reach the Champions League."

I thought the back 4 all had great games today. clyne was immense at RB dejan and fonte kept Lukaku and Naismith to just a couple of chances and Luke showed baines up today, in a comparison of the 2 best left backs in the england team luke outshone baines in every department.
cork was allowed to get further forward today and showed great link up play with the forwards. I think the linchpin was wanyama, he sat just in front of dejan and fonte which allowed cork to get forward when attacking and the full backs to press up the pitch. I love the cork and spider pairing in centre mid but I just think wanyama offers more defensively whoever he plays with. I still wonder if we can play all three together with jack just in front of spider and wanyama. it is worth noting that we have just kept 2 clean sheets in a row with wanyama back.
s. davis was great again today and should have scored. lalla is just magic, SRL played deeper today his positioning was superb brilliant touches and was playing some great balls through, how close was that free kick! Big Sam didn't do anything wrong and had a good game, its clear he hasn't got the pace of J-Rod but given time and games he might be a good replacement for SRL.

Did everton have a `bad day` or were they outplayed by us? they were making excuses about having both CB`s out, but that's nothing compared to our injuries!
after the game lalla seemed to be saying that as long as MP stays and we make some good signings he is happy here. he wasn't going to dismiss the transfer rumours because les reed did that yesterday. the club has made its statement and that's all that needs to be said.
watching on BT I was not surprised with david James's comments about us, kept saying how many points we have dropped from winning positions at half time and suggesting it would be easy for everton to get back into the game, then after the game he was saying how hard it would be to keep our players, sad jealous skate fumbler!

Absolutely correct. We didn't defeat Everton, we played them off the park. Outplayed, outfought, outthought. We've done that to a number of teams this season. We also totally outplayed Fulham, Swansea, Newcastle, Hull etc etc. I'd rate your side no better than any of them. At least Steve Bruce had the grace to admit we gave them a lesson. Unlike Martinez who didn't like it up him. Looking forward to looking down on you lot next season. Keep searching for the truth. You don't seem to be very good at recognising it when it's staring you in the face.

If they hadn't somehow got Lukaku and Barry on loan we would be looking down on them this season
They aren't even the best team in their own city!

We've done that to a number of teams this season. We also totally outplayed Fulham, Swansea, Newcastle, Hull etc etc. I'd rate your side no better than any of them. At least Steve Bruce had the grace to admit we gave them a lesson. Unlike Martinez who didn't like it up him. Looking forward to looking down on you lot next season. Keep searching for the truth. You don't seem to be very good at recognising it when it's staring you in the face.[/p][/quote]If they hadn't somehow got Lukaku and Barry on loan we would be looking down on them this season They aren't even the best team in their own city! bullsbags
