Martinez delighted with Everton win

Everton boss Roberto Martinez was full of praise for his side following their 3-0 win over Southampton at St Mary's on Saturday.

Romelu Lukaku scored twice in an excellent first half, before Ross Barkley netted late on to cap a clinical display from the Toffees.

And Martinez was absolutely delighted with the performance, particularly after some unrest amongst supporters about the club's transfer activity before the game.

"It wasn't about the points, it was about the performance," he told reporters after the game. "We were so generous with our effort. We made it a complete effort. 

"Remember every time we come to Southampton we find it difficult. We had everything today. Keeping that clean sheet was the pure example of the type of performance we had.

"When we play up to their strengths they are very, very special, but to see the best qualities of each individual you need to have a team performance.

"We got the right balance overall. I thought we were excellent in every department of our performance."
