Everton captain Seamus Coleman was delighted for the Blue half of the city after victory at Liverpool.
The Toffees won 2-0 at Anfield on Saturday.
Coleman said, "It's an amazing feeling, after coming here all those years and letting ourselves and more importantly letting the blue side of the city down. It's been hard. We can try and brush it off but when you have lived in the city for 10 years it has been difficult to take.
"I am fed up with coming out with the same clichés after losing. I'd thank the manager for the way he set us up and the players put in an unbelievable shift. That was against the champions, so we are delighted.
"I had to follow Andrew Robertson. The last time I had a job like that was against Ashley Cole at Stamford Bridge. He's a great player and I tried to stay with him.
"As a team it was just to compete and try and play. Dom [Calvert-Lewin] came on and made a difference. We need to start moving the club forward that goes back to the likes of Fulham at home."
