Very good Saints team selection and formation with 3 in form industrial central midfielders of which 2 of them played 120 minutes 3 days ago without showing heavy legs today.
Annoying that we didn´t get a clean sheet in the end, but apart from that a great team performance. Let´s keep momentum and take one game at a time and see how far we can go.
Very happy to see JWP be successful and score such a great goal. I had the feeling that he would get a goal today from distance. He deserves it, and with 2 physically strong midfielders working close to him, he has a great platform to shine from.

A scrappy ugly affair but Saints were clearly the better of two poor sides. Fatigue had obviously taken its toll on a few of our players and the rested ones were clearly more prominent and energetic, none-the-less most gave it 100% and that was good to see. I would have like to have seen more quality on the ball and a less frenetic (headless chicken?) approach to the game but we got a result and in the circumstances we couldn't ask for more.

Big shout out for JWP, who seems to be thriving under Hasenhüttl. MotM performance from Jan Bednarek who let nothing past him all day and won every header he went for with superb timing.

Great win today and good that it was despite going 2 up again - but hey we did that at Leicester too.

Everton offered little to be fair and we had the best of the chances throughout the game, including a couple of chances from Ings that were well saved, a Redmond why that hit the post and an interception that also hit the post.

We eventually took the lead early in the 2nd half. Great work from JWP to win the ball in the middle of the park and he then used strength I didn't know he had, to shrug off a challenge, take the ball on and then lash it into the top left corner from 22 yards.

The 2nd arrived courtesy of another interception / tackle that went towards goal. This time it went in instead of hitting the post. I thought Redmond got it initially, but the shrugging celebration kind of gave it away !!

Surprised at how poor Everton were, or how poor we made them look. Their 2 x £40+m superstars were totally ineffective (despite Sigurdsson tap in) and as for Richarlison, he was the worst player on the pitch and was rightly subbed.

Everton changed things towards the end and threatened a little and eventually pulled one back as we went into injury time when a ball into the box wasn't cleared and it fell to Sigurdsson. It wouldn't have mattered as much if Long hadn't seen his close range volley well saved, but we held on again for not only a win, but a home win !!

Good to have PEH back, who made a difference in the middle. Most of the team did well though, especially as some had played for 2 hours on Wednesday.

I don't know what the ref was doing near the end - not only going to collect the ball for Everton, but then allowing them to take a free kick from the wrong place in injury time (we've got previous after all).

Nice break now to rest and work on Ralfesque tactics. Some key games coming up and we can into them with confidence.

2 off the post, 2 goals, Redmond Handbags, a solid defense and a JWP blemmer. I just can't get enough! COYR!

Great result. Must mention 2 players. I've been 1 of JWP's harshest critics over the last couple of years but his performances of late have bee superb, what a transformation - tackling , driving forward & showing his creative side. Plus a great goal as well. Also Bednarek put in another great effort. Why MH & MP couldn't see his virtues shows the difference with RH in charge. Looking forward to rest of the season, onwards & upwards.

100% commitment all over the pitch Bednarek, PEH, JWP were all impressive . WTF was Hughes doing apart from stealing a living and a life times retirement from us???????. The change is beyond belief 6 points from two games when we would have been looking at 4 max 2 minimum from. You can say Everton were poor but then we made them look poor with continued pressing and at times slick passing. UTS 😇

Great atmosphere and so much intensity (for most of the game) from all the Saints players. Bednarek playing again is like having a new player. He's been excellent since his return. Stephens is in good form and a couple of marauding runs show just how much more forward looking the whole team is. Great to see JWP finally finding some form beyond the odd game. I'm not getting overexcited but the last few weeks have been so much more positive. All we need now is a partner for Ings and to move on those who are surplus to requirements - top of that list has to be Austin.
