Seamus Coleman is happy with his role on Everton's right flank.

The Irishman is enjoying a run of games at right-back, the position he originally occupied before a successful stint in midfield.

After victory over Southampton, Coleman told evertonfc.com: “I’m an attacking defender and I like linking up with Kevin (Mirallas). I can give him the ball and get past him, then he can either use me or go himself. He’s got great ability.

“I’d like to think we can do what the lads are doing on the left – maybe not to that extent because they’re unreal but it’s nice playing behind Kevin.

“It was probably some of the best attacking football I’ve been part of at Everton,” he said. “You could sense from the crowd how well we were doing. We’ve got the two lads on the left and you can’t say much more about them – they’re just brilliant.

“And it was good the way me and Kevin kept switching it, and got a few nice goals."
