Everton 3-0 West Bromwich Albion

Aaron Lennon, Romelu Lukaku, Ashley Williams and Mason Holgate during the Everton FC training session at USM Finch Farm on March 9, 2017 in Halewood, England.

Everton closed to within five points of the English Premier League top-four with a convincing 3-0 win over a lacklustre West Bromwich Albion at Goodison Park.

Koeman is obviously confident his side can hold on to that position because he tweeted after the League Cup final that Manchester United's victory was good news for Everton.

Goals from Kevin Mirallas, Morgan Schneiderlin and Romelu Lukaku (of course!) sealed the win without the home side ever really needing to get out of second gear, and Koeman said he was very happy with the way his side played.

The Toffees dominated possession in the first period but created few chances against a stubborn Baggies defence until Kevin Mirallas netted after Ross Barkley's shot was parried.

One of the defenders tasked with stopping the Belgian global is 37-year-old Albion centre-back Gareth McAuley, who is enjoying a fantastic season of his own after being nominated for the PFA Player of the Month award for February. Ramiro Funes Mori dropped back to the bench to accommodate the return of Phil Jagielka, Gareth Barry retained his place in central midfield, while Idrissa Gueye was also named among the substitutes as Mirallas came back into the side. It was a tough test for the Belgian facing a stubborn Baggies backline but his work rate paid off as he scored late on with a well taken header.

WEST BROM: Foster 5, Dawson 6, McAuley 6, Evans 5, Nyom 4, Livermore 5, Yacob 5, Fletcher 5, Chadli 5, McClean 4, Robson-Kanu 5. The goal was his first for Everton.

If he is absent again, then it could be a rerun of last season's one-sided affair at Goodison Park when Everton had 33 shots on goal.

Lukaku finally got his name on the score sheet heading in Ross Barkley's cross from close range in the 83rd minute.
