Everton picked up a fantastic 3-0 win against Stoke City.
Everton took on Stoke City this afternoon and ran rampant at The Britannia Stadium. The Toffees won comfortably, taking a 3-0 triumph from The Potteries.
They took the lead when Romelu Lukaku slotted home from the penalty spot, after Jack Butland took down Tom Cleverley in the box.
Cleverley then turned provider for the second, swinging in a corner for Seamus Coleman, an unlikely candidate, to turn home a header.
Aaron Lennon was then played through on goal and showed great composure to slip the ball beyond Butland for 3-0.
There was an abundance of top performances in the game. Bryan Oviedo was brilliant again, Ross Barkley was his mercurial best whilst Ramiro Funes Mori and Phil Jagielka were solid at the back.
But Cleverley really stood out.
The former Manchester United midfielder has his critics but had a real impact on the proceedings in this game popping up in dangerous positions throughout the game.
His bagged an assist and won a penalty in one of his best games in an Everton shirt to date.
Hopefully he can continue to perform like this for the Toffees.
Lennon and Cleverley looking like very clever signings...... Both fantastic today #EFC— Ross Starmer (@Starmer77) February 6, 2016
What is encouraging is the work-rate this XI has with this personnel. Cleverley, Lennon so industrious, as is McCarty. Much more solid #EFC— Matt Jones (@MattJFootball) February 6, 2016

Whilst Barry was his usual assured self, never to McCarthy breaking things up, & Cleverly starting to show what a class act he is #EFC— Everton All Sorts (@EvertonAllSorts) February 6, 2016
Clinical performance. All the lads doing well but props to Oviedo, Lennon and Cleverley. #EFC— Rob Astell (@RobAstell) February 6, 2016
Theory: #efc would be higher in the league if Cleverley had played every game.— Football Trivial (@TrivialFootball) February 6, 2016
