Squares R9C1 and R9C2 in row 9 form a simple locked pair. These 2 squares both contain the 2 possibilities <57>. Since each of the squares must contain one of the possibilities, they can be eliminated from the other squares in the row.
   R9C6 - removing <57> from <2567> leaving <26>
   R9C8 - removing <5> from <456> leaving <46>
   R9C9 - removing <5> from <245> leaving <24>
Intersection of row 3 with block 2. The values <58> only appears in one or more of squares R3C4, R3C5 and R3C6 of row 3. These squares are the ones that intersect with block 2. Thus, the other (non-intersecting) squares of block 2 cannot contain these values.
   R1C4 - removing <58> from <5678> leaving <67>
Intersection of row 5 with block 4. The value <7> only appears in one or more of squares R5C1, R5C2 and R5C3 of row 5. These squares are the ones that intersect with block 4. Thus, the other (non-intersecting) squares of block 4 cannot contain this value.
   R4C2 - removing <7> from <2567> leaving <256>
   R4C3 - removing <7> from <37> leaving <3>
