Tony Bellew takes HELICOPTER to Goodison Park for Everton's win over West Brom after Soccer AM appearance

Tony Bellew travelled to Goodison Park in style ahead of Everton’s win over West Brom at Goodison Park.

The die-hard Toffees fan appeared on Soccer AM on Saturday morning and Sky Bet eased any fears he might have had about missing kick-off by laying on a helicopter for him during the show.

The VIP treatment from Sky topped off a fine start to the day for Bellew, who had earlier scored a clinical penalty on the weekly TV show.

He was snapped by photographers on Merseyside as he smiled and waved to fans ahead of Everton’s 3-0 reversal of the Baggies.

Kevin Mirallas, Morgan Schneiderlin and Romelu Lukaku all scored as Everton moved to within two points of sixth-placed Manchester United, who have two games in hand.

Speaking on Soccer AM before the match, Bellew claimed he knew he would beat David Haye in last weekend’s heavyweight grudge match in London.

Haye’s corner threw the towel in in the 11th round with the London-born fighter struggling with a serious Achilles injury sustained in the sixth.

And Bellew said: “I said to him ‘you’re blowing boy’ and I knew from the end of the fourth round that I had him, even in the first round in my mind I’d won the fight in the first round.

“We got into an early exchange and I hit him with a left hook on the temple, and I’ve always said this – I’m not somebody that needs to hit you bang on the chin to hurt you, I can hit you anywhere and hurt you.

“I hit him on the top of the head and he kind of bounced back like a cartoon character, I’d say like Sideshow Bob, but he just sprung back with shock. It was at that moment in time that I knew I got his respect and he knew he was in for a fight in that very first exchange and from there on in it was just about executing the game plan.”
