David Unsworth has thanked Evertonians for the reception he received during Everton’s 4-0 victory over West Ham.

Unsworth: “That was very special and I thank the supporters for that

“I have always had a wonderful affiliation with the Everton fans. I had a great relationship with them throughout my playing career. That was a nice personal moment and I thank them for that.

“It means the world to me. When we took over we were in the bottom three, so to get us up the league to 13th is a step in the right direction.

“We have had a lot of games in a short period of time and it has been a tough six weeks. But, hopefully, we have given the new manager and his staff a platform to build on tonight.”
