Nikica Jelavic's impressive hot streak continued at the start of April - though two defensive lapses meant a clinical brace at Norwich earned a point rather than the three it deserved.
The Blues were back to their emphatic best just 48 hours later though as the Easter Monday game resulted in the joint biggest win of the season.
Following the previous month's FA Cup replay triumph at the Stadium of Light, Sunderland must have been sick of the sight of the Toffees as second-half goals from Magaye Gueye, Steve Pienaar, Leon Osman and an own goal from Jack Colback made their annual league trip to Goodison a miserable one.
A 32,000-strong army of Evertonians headed down to Wembley the following weekend as the city’s two clubs prepared to do battle at the national stadium for the first time in 23 years. It all seemed to be going to plan when Nikica Jelavic (who else?) took advantage of a defensive mix-up to ease his side in front.
Second-half goals from Luis Suarez and Andy Carroll ended the Blues’ hopes however, and attention swiftly – dramatically - returned to the league. Indeed, no-one could have foreseen the drama as Moyes’ charges came from 3-1 and then 4-2 down to force a 4-4 draw at Old Trafford eight days later and, in the words of Sir Alex Ferguson himself, cost Manchester United the title.
Confidence sky-rocketed again and another Jelavic double – either side of Marouane Fellaini’s header - triggered a 4-0 thrashing of Fulham before the month was out.
It was the final strike that afternoon that would ultimately have the greatest significance however, Tim Cahill playing a clever one-two with Steven Pienaar before stabbing home what would prove his final Everton goal.
