SOUTHAMPTON, England (AP) -- Everton self-destructed in its attempt to earn a Champions League spot, scoring two own goals in a 2-0 loss to Southampton on Saturday that seriously dents the team's chances of finishing in the top four in the Premier League.

Antolin Alcaraz headed into his own net in the opening minute, and Seamus Coleman repeated the feat in the 31st as Everton missed a chance to provisionally move above Arsenal into fourth place. Arsenal remained one point ahead with a game in hand, with Everton having just two matches remaining.

Romelu Lukaku missed two good scoring chances for Everton in the first half and Leon Osman appealed for a penalty in the 62nd minute but was booked for diving instead.

Southampton is lodged firmly in eighth place on 52 points.
