Everton fans equally excited by Lukaku and Barkley on Twitter after Southampton win

Barkley, Lukaku, Barry

Many of the Toffees' faithful couldn't pick between the duo after their side's superb 3-0 triumph at St Mary's.

Everton's 3-0 win over Southampton on Saturday afternoon was classic Roberto Martinez. A week after a drab 2-2 draw with Watford at Goodison Park, the Toffees shot up into fifth gear as they dismantled the Saints in their own backyard.

Indeed, two goals from Romelu Lukaku and a third from Ross Barkley settled the Premier League tie for Martinez's men at St Mary's, as Everton beat Southampton without a second thought during the day's early kick-off.

And Everton fans couldn't choose between Lukaku or Barkley when it came to picking their man of the match.

John Stones received plenty of praise after the Southampton win bust most supporters on Twitter were split between either Lukaku, Barkley - or both.

Belgian Lukaku sums up Everton's ability to suddenly hit form more than anyone. The 22-year-old striker is often criticised for his temperament and, primarily, inconsistency. But, at his best, he justifies both Martinez and the Everton support's faith in him. Barkley, meanwhile, is another young talent fans will be hoping they can hold on to for a while.

Here's how the Everton faithful reacted on Twitter to the pair's displays against Southampton!
