Seamus Coleman believes Everton's unswerving determination again paid dividends in Sunday's exhilarating 2-1 win over Tottenham Hotspur.

Trailing 1-0 as the clock hit 90, the Blues were staring a first home defeat since March square in the face.

Yet Coleman provided a right-wing cross for the surging Steven Pienaar to head the hosts level, before Nikica Jelavic pounced to stab the winner and send Goodison wild.

The result moved Everton above Spurs up to fourth in the Barclays Premier League table. And Coleman said: “It was a big game and a massive few points. Before the game I was at home looking at the table and it occurred to me that a win could really put us up there but with a defeat we were looking at maybe dropping down to ninth.

“I thought during the first half, ‘here we go again’. We were making chances and not taking them. I got into a few good positions myself and probably didn’t get the cross in I’d have liked, so that’s why in the end I was pleased I got my head up and picked out Pienaar.

“When we were making cross after cross and chance after chance I was thinking, ‘someone please just score’.”

Coleman returned from injury to feature for the first time since November's defeat at Reading and now hopes to build on an impressive start to the 2012/13 campaign.

He said: “I was really pleased to be back and involved in the goal. I thought I’d be fit for last week but unfortunately wasn’t, so it was good to be back in the team.

"I thought I had done it again in the first half but fortunately I got up and ran it off. I felt good in the end.”
