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 made his power play to try and get Sheikhy to raise his wages or trade him to PSG. PSG were probably not interested and he is stuck with no cake and no vacation. @Jay_D> Surely you jest about FFP being real, right? All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA. FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
