Everton midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson says that the important part of today was the three points, rather than the spectacular effort he scored to win the game.
The Icelander scored the winner against Leicester to give the Blues their first away win of the season, and the first back to back wins of the campaign following the 3-0 win over Fulham last weekend.
He admitted that his strike is up there with his best goals, but that the win was what was really important.
“Our first away win this season, two victories on the bounce now and three very good points in what is a tough place to come to,” said Sigurdsson.
“They had 10 men and had a lot of players behind the ball. It was hard to break them down so as soon as I had the chance to score I thought, ‘Why not?’, and thankfully it hit the back of the net.
“It’s definitely up there [as one of my best goals]. It came at a very important time and was a really good goal that I’m very happy with.
“I’ve said it for the last few weeks that we didn’t feel like we were too far away from putting back-to-back results together. We felt like we were close to winning games and it’s nice to win two games on the bounce.”
