Maybe it's because we didn't play two defensive midfielders that we looked better and created a lot more.

I think a lot of things went on against Leicester that were obvious but we were unable to resolve all of them in previous matches (except At the end of the Unsworth reign/start of Allardyce).

As @Bigjmill mentioned about Coleman being back allowing Keane to play his own game and let Jags help out Martina without being left open.
Gana being fit again and transfer talk around Schneiderlin allowing Davies to start.
Coleman being back also gave us a creative outlet for an entire game (not just when 1 person randomly tried something good).

A guy up front that was capable of running on more mature legs for a full game.

Sigurdsson being allowed the time & finally getting up to speed with his teammates to look worthy of the price tag (in todays market).

It all just clicked to make us a decent team again. Now, the run of form recently has destroyed our confidence and it wouldn't be Everton if we won a game easily. So we still lost our shit from the penalty onwards.
But still.

Haha you went into more detail, just slightly and your more right than i am pal, Coleman if he stays fit can be the catalyst for a much better end to the season, than how it started..... Now for the left hand side.

Listen it might well turn out to be a decent signing but buying players who are deemed surplus to requirements by the teams we're hoping to catch isn't an original transfer policy. Walcott looks like the right kind of personality rather than Schneiderlin who is totally the wrong type but it's a risk buying players who are taking a step down.

Maybe Walcott doesn't think of it as being a step down, maybe he thinks it's a chance to do what he does best, play football more regularly. Not a criticism of what you said mate, just another way of thinking. It must be do frustrating to be a really good player and be left on the bench most of the time. More power to him for having the guts to try it out in his peak years.
