Everton captain Coleman: Pickford world class for victory over Chelsea

Everton captain Seamus Coleman says Jordan Pickford was "world class" for victory over Chelsea on Sunday.

Pickford kept a clean sheet as Everton won via Richarlison's goal.

Coleman later said, "The results yesterday pulled them away and not many gave us a chance today, but we believed and the reception we came into, we couldn't get too carried away, but this football club means everything to those fans and we had to replicate that today."

On Pickford, he continued: "That save he came back off the line and parried out was world class and we see that on a daily basis in training and that is why he is England's number one - some of the saves were world class.

"I have been here a long time and never been in this situation but never felt like I did coming into the stadium today - the flares and genuine passion in grown men's faces singing the Everton songs, if that doesnt touch you as players you mgiht as well hang up the boots."
