Seamus Coleman rolled back the years to pocket Wilfried Zaha in Everton’s 3-0 win over Crystal Palace.

Goals from Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Anthony Gordon and Dwight McNeil sealed a comfortable victory for Frank Lampard’s side.

After avoiding relegation by the skin of their teeth last season, Everton look far more comfortable this season, particularly at the back.

One player who stood out today was their captain Seamus Coleman, who played his third game in a week at 34 years-old.

At his age, it’s clear he is in the twilight of his career with both Everton and Ireland. Having made over 300 appearances for Everton since joining from Sligo Rovers in 2009, he made his mark as an attacking full-back that was also solid defensively.

There is no denying it has been a rough decade for Everton. From competing for European places, to relegation battles last season, combined with financial issues off the pitch, Seamus Coleman has been solid throughout.

His loyalty to the club is unmatched, as he was determined to stay with Everton through the most difficult of times.

While he has not been the first choice option at right back since the signing of Nathan Patterson in January, Seamus Coleman has looked solid since Patterson’s injury.

Today he faced one of the Premier League’s trickiest forwards in Wilfried Zaha, who has made a career out of making top Premier League defenders look foolish.

However, Coleman used all his experience to keep Zaha quiet in a top display form the Ireland defender, and Everton fans absolutely loved it.

This will be hugely positive for not just Everton and Frank Lampard, but also Stephen Kenny and Ireland. While Matt Doherty may be first choice at right wing-back, it will be encouraging to know Coleman can be called upon if necessary.
