West Bromwich Albion boss Roberto Di Matteo was delighted with their 4-1 thumping of Everton at Goodison Park.

The Baggies struck twice in each half of an eventful clash at Goodison Park to end a run of five games without a win with a convincing 4-1 success.

Paul Scharner opened the scoring before Chris Brunt doubled the advantage with a brilliant free-kick.

Tim Cahill pulled one back but West Brom took advantage of the sending-off of Mikel Arteta to secure victory through Somen Tchoyi and a Youssouf Mulumbu effort which was deflected in by Sylvain Distin.

Di Matteo said: "There were some excellent goals today - we were very clinical, which has been missing in the last few weeks from our game.

"I thought we played some fantastic football, we didn't show any fear.

"We showed a lot of courage to come here and play the football we did.

"We rode our luck a bit at 2-1 and our keeper made some great saves to keep us in the game.

"But the quality of our play and the quality of goals gave us our advantage."
