Everton will earn £26.6m in so-called 'merit money' from the Premier League, based on finishing 7th this season, with Chelsea bagging £38m.
The prize money is more than double the £12.4m Everton earned last season when they finished 11th as Roberto Martinez's spell as manager ended.
Everton are one of only four teams whose finishing positions are fixed with four other Premier League games still to be played this week before the final round of matches on Sunday.
Some of the mid-table teams have a lot still to play for in terms of prize money with a tight 5-point spread across 8th to 16th places.

Sod the football. I just follow money and transfers now. Hate the game itself!

It's roughly £2 million per position at a quick glance.

All terrible. Every result must have been ground out.

You had me in stitches.
Jim, I am sure Dermot is having a joke?

The Torino manager said: 'We weren't expecting so many mistakes...'!

I'm tired of all these flashy gits. Forget Joe Hart. Surely there's a fat Welsh dustman we can sign for a pint and a chip butty.
