​Coleman wants Everton to build on Arsenal victory

Everton defender Seamus Coleman hopes their confidence-boosting 2-1 win over Arsenal will prove to be a turning point in their season.

Next up for the Toffees is the Merseyside derby at Goodison Park on Monday.

"I hope it's a turning point. It is important that in the next game we play, the derby, we show the same passion," Coleman told evertontv.

"We need to show that in every game this season. It is such a tough league that if you switch off for a minute or aren't on your game from the start then you will be punished.

"It was important that we put in a performance where afterwards we could go home and look in the mirror no matter what the result.

"It is something that we haven't been doing of late and we came together as a team and spoke about how we can put things right.

"Against Arsenal that was the Everton I know and the Everton of old out there."
