Ronald Koeman hailed Everton’s performance on Twitter after they beat West Ham 2-0 at Goodison Park on Sunday afternoon.
In-form striker Romelu Lukaku opened the scoring for the hosts in the second-half, before the Belgian supplied Ross Barkley, who doubled his side’s lead with a controlled half-volley.
The Merseyside club ended a sequence of five games without a win, and maintained their unbeaten record in league matches at home this season.
Dutchman Koeman, who was appointed Blues boss in the summer, was pleased with his team’s display.
“Happy with the win at Goodison,” Koeman wrote on his personal Twitter account. “Massive support from our fans, thank you!”

As a result of the win against the Hammers, Koeman’s side have 18 points from ten games, five points off league leaders Manchester City.
The Toffees have the second tightest defence in the league, behind Tottenham. Everton have conceded eight goals to Tottenham’s five.
Koeman’s side will now prepare for a tough away fixture against Chelsea on Saturday evening at Stamford Bridge.
