David Moyes insists Everton's season-ending trip to Chelsea won't be a 'dead duck'.
 
Everton can neither climb nor fall from their current sixth place berth, regardless of the result at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.
 
The Londoners themselves are still celebrating Wednesday's Europa League triumph, leading to questions over the likeliness of a competitive tie.
 
Moyes said at his Friday press conference: "We hope it's not a dead duck of a game. It's not got the most riding on it, that's for sure.
 
"We can't get any further up the league and we can't go any further down. But what we can do is get our record points total."
 
Chelsea's 2-1 win over Benfica in Amsterdam has brought the value of Europe's secondary competition into focus.
 
Moyes observed: "In hindsight we might think it's a good thing not being in the Europa League - you hear a lot of managers say that.
 
"But I didn't think that was the case with Everton. I thought it was something we needed as a football club, so we're disappointed to miss out on that. We always thought we had an outside chance.
 
"Chelsea have done brilliantly well in winning the cup and they've got themselves in the Champions League spot again so they've ended up having a strong season.
 
"Maybe they'd like it to be stronger but winning the Europa League is good.
 
"It would mean a lot to win the game. I want to win as many games as we can and I want to finish the season with a win. We've had a good record all season. We'll go to Chelsea and go there trying to get the three points."
