Dominic Calvert-Lewin took a swipe on the Everton boo boys after marking his return from damage with a purpose within the 3-1 win at Brentford.
The England striker was jeered by some followers after he went off with a fractured cheekbone in the course of the 4-0 defeat at Aston Villa at first of the season.
But he confirmed the Toffees what they’ve been lacking by climbing off the bench to wrap up their first win of the season.
“Football is a funny old game,” Calvert-Lewin advised Sky Sports.
“When I came off against Aston Villa my own fans booed me off. Today they cheered me. I’ll relish this and take the rest with a pinch of salt.”
James Tarkowski had headed the Toffees again into the lead towards his outdated membership after Mathias Jensen cancelled out Abdoulaye Doucoure’s opener earlier than half-time.
Then Calvert-Lewin grabbed solely his second purpose since final October when he collected James Garner’s through-ball and slotted house.
.Boss Sean Dyche insisted a vastly improved show had been on the playing cards for some time regardless of selecting up only one level from their first 5 matches.
He mentioned: “I don’t think it came from anywhere. The signs have been there but you have to change the storyline, you have to take your chances.
“To come in at 1-1 was a bit of a head-scratcher, so to come out in the second half and be so calm again was very pleasing.
“I’m very pleased with the whole performance. My job is to look at the performances, win or lose. We’ve deserved more but you’ve got to force it and today we did.
“We had a good chat in the week with the players and said it’s us who have to change the story.
“It’s tough playing well and not getting results. That’s where you should grow and have on-pitch maturity and play under pressure and that’s what we did today.”
The Bees, against this, have been distinctly off-colour and are nonetheless with out a win at house this season.
Boss Thomas Frank mentioned: “It was a very bad day. Everton deserved to win, we performed badly.
“We performed very well in our first first five games, but today was a bad one.
“It was very unlike this group of fantastic players, but we are good at bouncing back from a bad performance and I expect us to bounce back.”
