Pace. Power. Accuracy. Shaun Wright-Phillip's goal had it all as he completed the scoring in an emphatic 5-1 victory against Everton in May 2004.

The wide man - who won the fans' Player of the Year - capped an impressive performance as the Blues ended the season on a high against the Merseysiders.

Wright-Phillips had enjoyed a fine campaign and finished it in style as he raced on to Sun Jihai's clearance and away from the chasing defenders before arrowing a fierce drive beyond Nigel Martyn in the Toffees' goal.

A brace from Paolo Wanchope and one from Nicolas Anelka had given the home side a three goal cushion at half time. Kevin Campbell pulled one back on the hour but Antoine Sibierksi and Wright-Phillips made sure of the result late on.
