The result means that Everton have now won seven of their 18 Premier League games, and trail Tottenham in fifth by seven points going into Spurs’ clash at Southampton this evening.
Koeman’s men were on a wretched run of form for a decent chunk of this season, this all after winning four of their opening five league matches, and sitting second in the division behind Manchester City on September 17.
However, since then the Toffees have picked up just 13 points from a possible 39, which has thus seen them slip down the Premier League table.
Nonetheless, wins over Arsenal and Leicester will have given the Everton faithful some optimism going into the second half of the campaign, and they travel to Hull on Friday hoping to record back-to-back wins.
