I am ecstatic to see Everton produce such an outstanding performance to secure a crucial 5-1 victory over Brighton on the south coast.

Not only was it our finest display of the season so far, but it was also a result that has lifted us out of the bottom three and up to 16th in the Premier League table.

I watched the first half of the game live on my phone waiting for and traveling on the 803 from Enköping Hospital to Bålsta following a Doctor's appointment. Then I watched the second half of the game live on my phone on the train from Bålsta to Stockholm. This is a game that I will remember for a long time. 

From the outset, it was clear that Sean Dyche's men were not feeling the pressure, but rather saw this as an incentive to fly out of the blocks and secure an early lead, which they did inside the opening 34 seconds. Abdoulaye Doucoure fired home a low cross from Dominic Calvert-Lewin to give us the lead, and he followed it up with a brilliant volley on the half-hour mark to make it two.

Despite Brighton pushing and probing for a route back into the game in the second half, Everton sealed the win with a decisive fourth goal from Dwight McNeil in the final 15 minutes. Brighton did manage to get a consolation goal via a late Alexis Mac Allister strike, but it was little more than that, and McNeil made sure to restore the Blues' four-goal margin of victory with a stunning strike deep into stoppage time.

What I loved about this victory was the fantastic team effort that we put in. Every player was superb in their respective positions, and the two changes that Sean Dyche made from the team that faced Leicester City in the last game proved to be spot on.

Yerry Mina returned to the side in place of Michael Keane, while Nathan Patterson replaced the injured Seamus Coleman, and it was Patterson who made the crucial interception that helped put us ahead inside the opening minute.

Alex Iwobi found Calvert-Lewin, who took the ball with an excellent turn before driving into the penalty area. His superb cut-back found Doucoure, who fired home to put us in front.

As the half progressed, it was clear that Brighton were trying to target our right side, but Patterson and Iwobi stood firm. Meanwhile, McNeil was excellent on the left, picking up the ball from deep and driving all the way to the edge of the Brighton penalty area to lay the ball off for Doucoure to score his second.

In the second half, we had to withstand some pressure from the hosts, but Jordan Pickford was outstanding in goal, denying Brighton a number of times with crucial saves. It was from a set-piece that we put the game to bed, with Iwobi driving deep into the Brighton half before sliding a pass into the path of McNeil, who calmly dribbled around the keeper to grab our fourth.

This victory has given us a huge boost of confidence, and it shows that we are capable of producing big performances when we need them most. With three games left to play this season, we go into the game with Man City on a high hoping to perform again at this level which could see us get something from the game. Then we face Wolves away and Bournemouth at home. We have ride on the crest of this momentum If we are to climb further up the table and preserve our Premier League status for another season. 

As an Everton supporter, I am thrilled with this result and can't wait to see how the coming three games will unfold for us.

With the right mentality and determination, we can pull away from this relegation dog fight, and this performance has shown that we are capable of doing just that. COYB!
