Finally, one of the most exciting facets of Martinez's first season has been the involvement of so many young players.
Ross Barkley had started just two Premier League games before this season yet has become integral in the Catalan's first campaign.
At 23, James McCarthy is a strong contender for the club's Player of the Year, while John Stones has announced himself as the best young defensive prospect in the country.
Romelu Lukaku and Gerard Deulofeu have also played important roles, albeit as temporary signings.
While he didn't feature, the fact Martinez included 16-year-old Ryan Ledson, an immensely talented under-17 international, on his bench further emphasises his confidence in youth.
Luke Garbutt and Tyias Browning have also been regular substitutes, while Martinez has been eager to find loan moves for as many academy prospects as possible.
Why this is a success is because of what it means for the Toffees' future; not just on the field, but financially, too.
A club with such limited financial resources must nurture and hone their own talent to raise the value of their squad.
Martinez has shown a willingness to do this, bringing him immediate rewards and laying strong foundations for the future.
