Coleman, 33, was in awe of the atmosphere at Goodison Park for the match against Frank Lampard's former side.

The former Sligo Rovers defender was amazed by the passion the supporters showed throughout the game, suggesting "you might as well hang up the boots" if it didn't motivate the players.

Coleman insisted his side must "keep battling" if they are to remain a Premier League club next season.

"I'll be honest, I've been here a long time, and I've never been in this situation before but I've also never felt what I felt coming into the stadium today," Coleman told Sky Sports.

"The flares, the genuine passion on grown men's faces when they were singing Everton songs. You know, if that doesn't touch something with you as players, you might as well hang up the boots.

"We definitely got an extra few per cent going into that game. To be honest, we done that for them today because we know how they are hurting. But again, we've got to keep going and we've got to keep battling."
