Everton fans react on Twitter following victory against West Ham

By Emma Sanders

Everton fans reacted with delight on Twitter as the Toffees recorded a comfortable 2-0 victory against West Ham at Goodison Park.

Second-half goals for Romelu Lukaku and Ross Barkley helped Everton get their first victory in five games on Sunday afternoon.

Lukaku scored his seventh goal of the season in just ten games while Barkley hadn’t scored since the opening weekend of the season.

The England international was Man of the Match after producing an assured performance despite suffering criticism in recent weeks.

Everton currently sit in 6th position, just one point off Chelsea who still have a game in hand, but the Blues are trailing their Merseyside rivals by five points.

It was Everton’s first clean sheet since their 3-0 victory against Sunderland on September 12th and will have given Koeman’s side a much-needed boost.

West Ham’s woes continue though as their star midfielder Dimitri Payet once again struggled to impose himself on the game.

The Blues have another tough fixture coming up as they travel to Stamford Bridge next Saturday to take on Chelsea in their eleventh Premier League clash of the season.

However, fans were in good spirits following their victory. Here is a selection of the messages on Twitter:
