The Toffees skipper completed their haul three minutes before time after Ross Barkley and Romelu Lukaku had fired Everton into a two-goal lead.

After overcoming a bright start from Newcastle, Everton seized control of the game and a first away victory of the calendar year saw them move up to fifth in the Premier League standings.

Osman hailed the well-rounded performance of his side and believes they are gathering momentum at a crucial point of the season.

"I think we've been scoring some decent goals this season, but to score three goals like that on the night was even more pleasing," he told Sky Sports.

"We've had back-to-back wins before tonight and it was important that we started to pick up points away from home to get us in the direction we're heading for."

Roberto Martinez's side are now just six points behind Arsenal - with a game in hand - and although Osman believes Everton are outsiders for a top four finish at present, he claimed they will not be giving up on their chase.

"We've got to play some of the big teams yet and we're vying for it ourselves, we're the outsiders at the minute but we'll keep ticking along," he added.

"It is important [to keep this momentum] but we concentrate on the next game, we did that tonight and it went well."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
