Everton's flying young guns have earned special praise following their impact in Wednesday night's Carling Cup win over Huddersfield.

Seamus Coleman and Magaye Gueye were hailed by Everton assistant boss Steve Round for their part in the emphatic 5-1 victory over the Terriers at Goodison.

And David Moyes' number two revealed the Irish Under-21 international has caught the eye so much with his attacking style that he has earned a new nickname.

Round told "Seamus Coleman going forward was sensational. The lads have nicknamed him Seamus Ramos because he bombs forward so much.

"It was a pleasing night, for sure, to get a good win, to go through in the cup and to see some very good performances from our younger players."

Both Coleman and French youngster Gueye teed up goals for the Blues as they strolled to the third round - with Marouane Fellaini, Jack Rodwell, Jermaine Beckford, Louis Saha and Leon Osman all on target.

Gueye's footwork on the left ensured he received rich applause when he was subbed midway through the second period. Round is keen to stress, though, that he is one for the future.

He added: "He is a player that we think has got some good potential. He's got a lovely left foot and is very skillful, very attack-minded. It's very early for him yet so I think you'll see him come to the fore over the course of the season and into next season really."

One young player who is likely to have a more immediate impact is England Under-21 lynchpin Jack Rodwell. Round conceded it will be difficult to leave the midfielder out of the side when the Blues take on Aston Villa on Sunday.

"For sure. We know the quality he has got and he's a player we have high hopes for. There will be one or two now looking over their shoulders and saying there's a young player here who really wants to play and come on for Everton," explained Round.
