It was their first win in the last six games but Mark Hughes will be confident that his side can take something from this game.
He remarked: "They make the point on the last day of the season that everyone has to play at the same time so maybe they should do that in the last two weeks of the season".
Meanwhile Hughes, a former Wales boss whose managerial CV includes stints at Manchester City, Blackburn and Stoke, was unhappy that relegation rivals Swansea have more recovery time ahead of their key clash with Southampton on Tuesday.
The Toffees home form is excellent though.

Each of Everton's last seven goals at Goodison Park have come in the second half, while five of Saints' last seven away goals have been scored after the break.

Huddersfield Town are not safe yet either, though David Wagner and co. would, much like the opposite of West Brom, require a myriad of results to go against them. The Saints are one point behind Swansea for the final survival spot.
Everton defeated Huddersfield 2-0 last weekend.

Cenk Tosun arrived in Everton in January, and although it did take him some time to hit his stride, he's looking an excellent buy at the moment. They would love to be going into that match outside the bottom three though.
For the most part, the encounter between eighth placed Everton and Southampton was a dour affair, with not much in the way of excitement for the first hour.
He said, when asked about his aims for next term: "I think where we are - seventh a year ago, eighth at the moment - we want to try to maintain that position".
