The Toffees defender believes that his delicate chip for Everton's fourth goal in their 5-1 FA Cup third round victory over Cheltenham Town is the best that he has scored

Everton defender Seamus Coleman believes that his goal in the 5-1 FA Cup third round victory over Cheltenham Town was the best that he has scored in his career.

The 24-year-old, who recently signed a five-and-a-half year contract with the Toffees, was making his return from an injury in the tie and scored Everton's fourth goal.

"I think that's the best goal I've ever scored," Coleman told evertontv after the game. "I don't score too many, it's been a while since my last one.

"It had been playing on my mind and just before the game (Everton team mate) Shane Duffy said 'you are going to score' and he was right, thankfully!

"I just passed to Victor and made the inside run, he picked me out and I had to concentrate on getting my touch right. It sat up and I could just flip it over the keeper," added the former Sligo Rovers defender.

Coleman admitted that he was relieved to have made a return to action, having missed two weeks through injury, and is confident that his side can maintain momentum as they return to league action on Saturday January 12.

He said: "I was glad to get back. I've only missed 13 days but because there have been so many games in a short period of time I feel like I have been out for longer.

"I was glad to get back on the pitch and I feel good now. We are ready for Swansea now, it will be another difficult game but are playing well and we will look for another three points on Saturday," concluded the defender.
