Everton fans react on Twitter to West Brom win: "Stones playing = Clean sheet"

Kevin Mirallas Belgium

Everton secured their first win of the season today as Romelu Lukaku and Kevin Mirallas scored in a 2-0 win over West Bromwich Albion.

The Toffees have so far had a difficult start the season, facing newly promoted Leicester City before heading back to Goodison Park to face Arsenal and Chelsea. Those tough fixtures left Everton with just two points as they went to West Brom today in search of their three points - which they got with a comfortable win.

The game saw Baggies boss Alan Irvine face off against Roberto Martinez after the duo worked together at Everton last season, but unsurprisingly, it was the Spaniard who came out on top as his side coasted to an easy win at The Hawthorns this afternoon.

Romelu Lukaku opened the scoring against his former club with a superb curling shot from the edge of the box, before Kevin Mirallas sealed the win after his tame shot found its way through Ben Foster's fingertips and into the net.

The win gives Everton a much needed boost ahead of this week's Europa League tie against Wolfsburg, and fans were quick to praise the players for a professional display in the Black Country today. Goalscorers Lukaku and Mirallas naturally took plenty of plaudits, but there was also praise for John Stones and Gareth Barry after the duo turned in impressive performances.

Here are some of the reactions from Everton fans on Twitter after today's win.
