Carlo Ancelotti was the coolest man in Merseyside, despite his Everton side winning an FA Cup tie for the ages against Tottenham.
Bernard's sublime extra time strike was the decisive blow in a 5-4 thriller with Spurs that will live long in the memory.
Spurs actually took the lead at Goodison Park, with Davinson Sanchez scoring after just three minutes. But the hosts turned the game, scoring three goals in seven minutes through Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Richarlison and Gylfi Sigurdsson.
Erik Lamela would get one back before the break, before Sanchez grabbed his second just before the hour mark, only for Richarlison to complete his brace 10 minutes later.
Harry Kane scored Spurs' and the game's eighth in the final ten minutes, setting up a dramatic extra time period that saw Bernard lash home following a brilliant Sigurdsson ball.
And while the Toffees players were celebrating wildly, manager Carlo Ancelotti, who has won almost everything the game has to offer, was seen simply blowing on his hot cup of coffee.
Few could blame him for wanting to get some warmth, with temperatures dipping below 0°C, but his aura of calmness showed just what the former Milan boss has brought to the club.
Despite his seemingly cool response to the goal, his assistant Duncan Ferguson – known for more passionate celebrations – admitted the FA Cup is the one they really want to win this season.
