Heard a bloke on the way back to town after the match claim 20,000 Evertonians are travelling to France. Mental but wouldn’t surprise me.

Baines: Clean sheet vital

Leighton Baines admitted a clean sheet was almost as important as the Blues’ first home Premier League win of the season after a catalogue of defensive errors left the players scratching their heads.
“We have conceded some strange goals this season and I am not sure, if you look at it, we have given up many more chances than we would usually, but for some reason we have been conceding,” he said.

“You go away and look at all the stats and analyse things and it is just fine margins in football.

“It was nice to get back to normal and keeping a clean sheet is something we will look to replicate in the next few games.”

Baines is ridiculous

Jags has also been talking about Leighton Baines’ excellent performance yesterday.

He said: “The amount of balls he puts in is ridiculous and it’s nice for him to see people getting on the end of them and putting them in. 

“It was also nice to put on a good show today, score a few goals, keep a clean sheet and get back to the sort of standards that we expect of ourselves. And it was nice to hear the fans singing at the end too.

“Hopefully our confidence can come back now and we can climb the table.”

Baines: No World Cup hangover

Leighton Baines insists Everton’s slow start to the season is not down to a tiredness hangover from the World Cup this summer.

“I personally didn’t feel any lag (after the World Cup), but Rom came back later than myself, Jags (Jagielka) and Ross (Barkley), so he started the season probably having only been with us a week,” he said.

“Bear in mind some of the other lads had been back training seven weeks, so in that respect it is only just starting to level out really and we hope we will get him scoring goals because he is vital for us.”

Phil Jagielka may have notched another goal yesterday but he recognises the importance of keeping a clean sheet at the other end.

“I think one goal is normally a rich vein of goalscoring form for me!,” Jagielka joked.

“To get three in a month is fantastic but we were getting fantastic balls put in today and it makes it easier. 

“I think it was Bainesy’s right foot that swung it in, Rom took everyone out and it was nice for me to be able to nod it in. 

“But it was important for us to keep a clean sheet today. We kept a lot of clean sheets last year and it was something we were very proud of. 

“It’s something for us to build off.”
