Everton made it two wins out of two in the Premier League on Sunday, when they got the better of Manchester United 3-0 at home.
The Toffees headed into the game at Goodison Park on the back of a narrow 1-0 win against relegation-threatened Burnley at home.
It was not expected to be an easy contest for the Merseyside outfit, but they faced little trouble in winning it 3-0.
James McCarthy put hosts Everton in the lead as early as the fifth minute, and John Stones headed in the Toffees’ second 10 minutes before the half-time interval.
Then with 16 minutes of normal time remaining, Kevin Mirallas beat the offside trap to find the target and wrap up a 3-0 win for Everton.

Everton were the better side and deserved all three points. Although over the course of the 90 minutes, Roberto Martinez’s team had just 35% of the possession, they took nine shots of which seven were on target, and earned seven corners.
The Merseyside outfit are currently 10th in the Premier League table with 44 points from 34 matches, and will take on Aston Villa away from home at Villa Park next weekend.
