Everton travel to the Amex Stadium having won their first game in five Premier League fixtures, when goals by Bernard and Gylfi Sigurdsson were enough to beat United and move the Toffees out of the relegation places.

have yet won away from Goodison Park in the top-flight this season, though, and have scored just once on the road in their four games played thus far.

But beating the Irons has brought a renewed sense of confidence to Everton, and Gomes has shared that Marco Silva and his men are keen to replicate the high-intensity shown on Merseyside last week.

“Our success comes from hard work and strong belief,” he said. “We know we’re still not where we want to be, but we’re focused on maintaining last game’s performance and team spirit.”

Many Everton fans have been reacting to Gomes’ recent comment shared on , with some supporters agreeing with the Portuguese’s suggestion that the Blues’ must repeat the intensity of their performances against West Ham.

One fan has described last week’s display as being ‘fantastic’ with Gomes one of the stand out players from the result, and hopes that it sets the benchmark for the remainder of the campaign.

Gomes returned to Everton’s starting XI against West Ham following a rib injury, and completed the most dribbles of any Toffees player with three as well as playing one key pass and making two interceptions, per WhoScored data.

Another fan added that a win at Brighton on Saturday will help to bring more positivity to Goodison Park, as ‘all of the League will sit up and take notice’ if Silva can orchestrate another victory.

Here are some of the messages shared…

As well as lauding Gomes for his classy performance against West Ham, some Everton fans have responded to the midfielder’s post by focusing on the efforts of other players, such as Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Morgan Schneiderlin.

Calvert-Lewin was benched for the clash after failing to score against Burnley, where he failed to register any shots on goal, key passes or dribbles before being hooked in the 74th-minute (WhoScored).

Schneiderlin was also dropped from Silva’s plans following the Clarets loss, and fans seemingly are hopeful that the Frenchman is again omitted at the weekend.

Gomes replaced the 29-year-old in the 84th-minute at Turf Moor, where Schneiderlin had made no successful tackles or interceptions and played only eight of his 48 passes in the final third.

Some fans are not getting overly carried away after beating West Ham, though, as one supporter replied to Gomes post trying to play down the magnitude of last week’s win.

Another has shared that they hope Gomes has not jinxed Everton ahead of facing Brighton, as the Toffees need to take each game as they come, after winning a third of their league fixtures thus far.
