A week earlier, the Turkey worldwide had opened his account as the Blues slumped to a 2-1 reversal against Burnley.

After a tight and tense opening half to the game, Everton took control in the second period when an own goal from Gaetan Bong opened the scoring before Cenk Tosun netted once again.

"There was our opportunity to improve and come out better second-half and unfortunately, we didn't".

"That's two in two now and we saw the type of finish he delivered for us at the right time because going into the final stage of the game just 1-0 up can be nervous".

'The contribution Cenk is making now, as well as Theo, is making us better'.

Brighton were reduced to 10 men four minutes later as Anthony Knockaert was given a straight red card for a wild tackle on Leighton Baines.

There was plenty of negativity on Merseyside in the lead up to the match, with a negative brand of football and a poor run of form combining to annoy the Toffees fanbase, but a solid home success has begun to lift the cloud that was hanging over them.

Baines made his first appearance since sustaining a calf problem in November, while the starting line-up also featured Yannick Bolasie and Seamus Coleman, each sidelined long-term by injury before making returns to action in December and January respectively.

"I feel good physically".

"I was anxious it was going to hit the crossbar and bounce back out!"

Brighton's five-match unbeaten run ended and it dropped a place to 11th.

"I'm disappointed. We went in at half-time having not played well but still very much in the game".

He said: "What we have to say to the players is 'why don't you play this well away?' and then we don't need to change the team or shift the system about".

"It is hard to keep them levels consistently in every game".
