Seamus Coleman hopes Everton’s right-hand side can become just as potent as the team’s feared left flank.
 
Coleman and Kevin Mirallas combined to superb effect on Saturday with one or both of the pair involved in all three Blues’ goals.
 
The Irishman is enjoying a run of games at right-back, the position he originally occupied before a successful stint in midfield.
 
And he is beginning to forge a relationship with Mirallas which he hopes can eventually emulate the success of left-sided pair Steven Pienaar and Leighton Baines.
 
Coleman said: “I’m an attacking defender and I like linking up with Kevin. I can give him the ball and get past him, then he can either use me or go himself. He’s got great ability.
 
“I’d like to think we can do what the lads are doing on the left – maybe not to that extent because they’re unreal but it’s nice playing behind Kevin.
 
“It was probably some of the best attacking football I’ve been part of at Everton,” he said. “You could sense from the crowd how well we were doing. We’ve got the two lads on the left and you can’t say much more about them – they’re just brilliant.
 
“And it was good the way me and Kevin kept switching it, and got a few nice goals.
 
Despite his enthusiasm, Coleman is also acutely aware that there will soon be competition for the place in the team he currently occupies.
 
He continued: “Right-back is my position and where I’ve played all my life until the first season here when I played right midfield. I’m just glad to be in the team and playing. I was pleased with the cross for Nikica Jelavic but I had a few crosses which didn’t go to plan as well before I set him up.

Tony Hibbert is out injured at the moment but everyone knows over the last 10 years how good and consistent he’s been. I’ve a lot of work to do to get in at that position but luckily I’ve got great people to learn from.
 
“That’s where I see my position and hopefully I can play there at Everton.”

Andy MacBaing and poenaar on the left, Coleman and Mirallas on the right. The future is bright, the future is not orange. It is blue. So ner!
