Everton comfortably defeated Carlisle United on Sunday.
Everton overcame Carlisle United in comfortable fashion on Sunday, winning their FA Cup fourth round clash 3-0 courtesy of goals from Arouna Kone, Aaron Lennon and Ross Barkley.
The victory was a welcome boost after the Toffees’ controversial Capital One Cup exit at the hands of Manchester City last week, and manager Roberto Martinez gave some of his fringe players the chance to impress against their League Two opponents.
One of those was midfielder Tom Cleverley, who is a first-choice when fully fit but who has been in and out of the side due to injury this season.
The 26-year-old was making only his 17th appearance of the season against Carlisle and he played a vital role in the opening goal of the game, releasing Lennon before the winger set up Kone.
After the match we took to Twitter to see what Everton fans thought of Cleverley’s latest performance and you can read a selection of what we found below:
