Everton manager Roberto Martinez hails the club's supporters following their Europa League win against Wolfsburg.

Everton manager Roberto Martinez has praised the club's supporters following their 4-1 win over Wolfsburg at Goodison Park.

The Blues boss hailed his team's performance during the Europa League clash and described the home fans as "phenomenal".

"It was a really good evening," Martinez told reporters. "I thought we did a lot of talking about European nights at Goodison and it was phenomenal to see the fans and it was pleasing to finish with that scoreline.

"It's fair to say Wolfsburg have energy so we stopped their pressure and if you stop that you stop them being a real threat.

"We tried to play through them and use the gaps. We used our pressure better than them and got some opportunities by being well organised. It was a really open game between teams who wanted to get on the ball and the fans enjoy watching us play."

The Spaniard also singled out Everton goalkeeper Tim Howard for praise after watching the American pull off a string of saves.

"Tim was magnificent and it's a real shame the last kick ended up in the back of the net. I'm going to take it as a clean sheet," he added.

Everton are next in action when they face Crystal Palace in the Premier League on Sunday.
