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.
Villa booed off by their own fans at half-time & understandably so. By contrast, Everton fans reveling in the brilliance of Deulofeu.— Tony Barrett (@TonyBarretTimes) November 21, 2015

Deulofeu is easily our most creative player, pure magic— Elliot Jackson (@Big_Ell96) November 21, 2015
Excellent game. Deulofeu class, Rom and Ross had a great day, and a clean sheet for the star jump nonce— nate (@Colemanesque) November 21, 2015
Deulofeu has been brilliant so far for Everton today, continuing the excellent form he showed for Spain in the last 2 games.— Mike (@aguyiusedtoknow) November 21, 2015
We've got some attacking force us like, Lukaku, Barkley and Deulofeu, wouldn't want to be defending against them 3. #EFC— Luke Foley (@FoleyEFC) November 21, 2015
Hi @FCBarcelona Deulofeu wasn't very good today, honest. No need to keep an eye on him.— Just Dave (@SirDaveStephen) November 21, 2015
Enjoyed that today! Great game from Deulofeu and love how Kone has managed to change opinions!— Karen (@Karen55555) November 21, 2015
Deulofeu is an absolutely fantastic footballer— C DOT (@chrisrathe) November 21, 2015
Deulofeu was unplayable today, Villa couldn't get near him.— Joe Taylor (@JoeTaylor19) November 21, 2015
