Everton 4-0 Stoke City - Deulofeu and Oviedo star in thrashing

Everton have romped to victory versus Stoke City with goals from Gerard Deulofeu, Seamus Coleman, Bryan Oviedo and Romelu Lukaku.

Everton have romped home to victory against Stoke City - in a dominant and sweeping display against The Potters.

The Toffees scored four against their rivals and two players that came into the team - Gerard Deulofeu and Bryan Oviedo really excelled.

The first goal came from the Barca loanee, who had an exceptional first half for the team, and he bagged a finish on the stroke of half-time. He played a wonderful one-two with Steven Pienaar before exchanging passes with Gareth Barry and smashing the ball past Asmir Begovic.

Everton picked up where they left off in the second half. Deulofeu again was at the centre of the action, as was Gareth Barry, and the ball landed at Seamus Coleman whose sliced effort went into the top corner.

The rampage continued, and the replacement for the injured Leighton Baines was next on the scoresheet.

Costa Rican full-back Bryan Oviedo fired home a rampacious effort off the post after collecting the ball from a corner.

Tim Howard then pulled off a good save from Peter Crouch before Everton had a good penalty appeal turned down.

Just minutes later it was forgotten - as Romelu Lukaku made it four.

The Belgian capitalised on more excellent work from Oviedo, tucking in his cross from inside the six yard box to put the icing on the cake.
