Everton picked up their first win under caretaker manager David Unsworth on Sunday, beating Watford 3-2 in a thrilling English Premier League encounter at Goodison Park.
Finding themselves two goals down with just 25 minutes to play, any sort of result didn’t look likely for the home side but goals from Oumar Niasse, Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Leighton Baines all netted to provide them with a famous comeback victory, moving out of the dreaded relegation zone.
Niasse’s goal may not have been the prettiest scored in the top-flight this season but it got the job done and the striker’s hard work and perseverance was a big hit with supporters, with some crediting his determination as the inspiration for the victory.
He’s now scored four goals in four Premier League appearances at Goodison Park this season and seems to have made himself a permanent fixture in the starting eleven.
Fans were delighted with his performance and took to Twitter to share their thoughts…

Team showed more passion, fight and quality in that game today than most the season. Niasse takes credit for leading the line that way #EFC

As limited a player he may be I can never ABring myself to have a go or hate Niasse, the lad doesn’t stop, and can get a goal as well #EFC
