Everton picked up a win which was much needed, when they took care of Cardiff City 3-0 on Tuesday evening, and after the match fans were full of praise for their key man on the night.

The Toffees headed across the Severn Bridge in pretty ordinary form, but having had 17 days since their last match, they had been given the chance to take a step back, reflect on where they were going wrong, and work on putting it right again.

It must be said that Everton made full use of that opportunity, and ran out comfortable winners down at the Cardiff City Stadium, much to the delight of their under pressure boss Marco Silva.

There was a chance heading into the contest that the Toffees players might have one eye on the Merseyside derby on Sunday, but if that was the case they never showed it, as they got in front early enough and maintained their advantage throughout the game.

The lead was given to Everton by Gylfi Sigurdsson, when he burst into the box to get on the end of a Seamus Coleman pull back, and then after the break he got a second when he finished off good play by substitute Bernard.

It was far from a vintage Toffees performance, but given what had gone before I don’t think anyone linked with the club were overly bothered about that. Dominic Calvert-Lewin rounded off the win late on.

After the match it was fair to say Everton fans were impressed with what they saw from Gylfi Sigurdsson, with many of them taking to social media to post about his performance.

The Toffees have the biggest game of their season on the horizon on Sunday when they entertain rivals Liverpool, and supporters will be hoping that the Iceland international can replicate his display against the Reds.
