Cape Town - Everton manager Ronald Koeman praised his team for putting on an excellent all around display in last Saturday's 3-0 victory over West Bromwich Albion at Goodison Park.

Two quick goals from Kevin Mirallas and Morgan Schneiderlin - the Frenchman’s first for the club since joining from Manchester United - put the Blues in a commanding position at the interval.

Ross Barkley then set up Romelu Lukaku in the final stages to seal a deserved win. As such, Koeman expressed his pleasure with the performance.

He told the club's official website, "We played well, controlled the game and we were dangerous in certain moments of the game. The best thing, in my opinion, was the way we brought a lot of attention to how we needed to defend set pieces with how many tall players they had. We were outstanding in that aspect.

"You get a lot of space to play just outside your own box but not 20 yards to their goal it is very difficult, so scoring three goals against West Brom is very good."

The victory see the Toffees move just two points behind sixth-placed United while they comfortably also hold seventh position as well.

Koeman's men next welcome Hull City to Goodison Park on Saturday in a league encounter with Marco Silva's men desperate to maintain their recent form after a win over Swansea City.

Kick off is at 17:00.
