Everton overcame Fulham 3-0 at Goodison Park on Saturday to move up to eleventh place in the Premier League table. The performance and the result was a welcome relief for Evertonians after a series of bad results recently. While the scoreline made it look like a walk in the park for the Toffees, that actually wasn’t quite the case.
Everton had to wait almost until the hour mark for their first goal. The breakthrough finally came courtesy of Gylfi Sigurdsson who produced a terrific finish into the bottom corner with his left foot. The Everton players and fans in the stadium, exploded with a combination of jubilation and relief.
However, there was one thing about the goal celebration that was fairly rare. These days, after a big goal, most fans often take out their smartphones to grab pictures and videos of the goal celebration, but an image captured at Goodison Park shows the sea of fans in the background celebrating the goal, seemingly without a single fan reaching for his or her smartphone or iPad.
See if you can spot any phones in the below picture below:

This picture is evidence that the Goodison faithful are proper fans who revel in the moment rather than pulling out their phones at every turn. Everton fans on social media are rightly proud of the above picture.
