Everton captain Phil Jagielka admits they have to find a way to regain their consistency next season in order to avoid a repeat of a disappointing campaign.
A combination of European football and a high number of injuries left the Toffees facing a relegation battle for a brief period.
They pulled themselves out of it in a run of six matches from which they picked up 16 points but they can finish no higher than 10th this season and will fall way short of their 72-point tally of 12 months ago.
"It has been frustrating season," said the captain, who recorded a clean sweep at this week's club awards winning player of the season, players' player and goal of the season for his long-range strike in the Merseyside derby at Anfield.
"We have played some really good football and really average football as well and it has been a case of us not finding the consistency of last season.
"We have one more game to go. We hope to finish off well and look at where things went wrong for most of the season and then hopefully address it for the start of next."
