Everton fans react on Twitter to Gerard Deulofeu's stunning performance

The Toffees defeated Aston Villa 4-0.

Everton ran rampant today against a poor Aston Villa side at Goodison Park - winning 4-0. Two goals apiece from Romelu Lukaku and Ross Barkley did the trick for Everton on a triumphant return to action after the international break.

Barkley and Lukaku were the obvious stars. They scored the goals that took them to glory and their ever increasing goal tally is proving key to the success of Everton's season.

But once again it was summer signing Gerard Deulofeu who really impressed.

The Spaniard was signed on a permanent deal in the summer after initially spending some time on loan with the club from Barcelona.

He has been in fantastic form for Everton in recent weeks and he had a field day this afternoon.

With Jordan Amavi injured Kieran Richardson stepped into the left-back role and he was torn to shreds by the Spanish under-21 captain.

His form continues to dazzle and improve at Goodison Park and before long it won't be a surprise if Barcelona come and activate his buy-back option.
