The game burst into life straight from the off. The Blues were genuinely dominant from the first whistle to half time. Burnley didnt have a single chance beyond one offside goal, while we took our chances – and a 2 goal lead – into the second period.

The second half was a much more muted affair, but the talking point will be the final time on the Goodison pitch for Phil Jagielka. A truly exceptional defender who’ll be missed in a blue shirt.

That’s it for Goodison for a few months, and it was certainly a signing off in style. Mr Silva’s first season at home ended the way he most definitely would have wanted, with all of his philosophy coming together excellently. We were impenetrable at the back and terrifying going forward.

I enjoyed the season, while it had its ups and downs, I genuinely looked forward to going to Goodison again. That’s enough for me.
