Everton have advanced into the fourth round of the Carabao Cup after beating Sheffield Wednesday 2-0 at Hillsborough on Tuesday night.

The Toffees were looking for a big result after Saturday's 2-0 home defeat to Sheffield United, and picked up a key win over the other big Steel City side.

 

Djibril Sidibe picked out a fine pass to set up Dominic Calvert-Lewin for the opener, before Alex Iwobi teed up Calvert-Lewin for the second.

The Sheffield-born striker will have loved scoring against the Owls, and Everton will now be looking to kick on and take that cup result into this weekend's game against Manchester City.

Everton's trip to Hillsborough was of course emotional for the city of Liverpool as a whole, and Toffees fans paid tribute to the 96 Liverpool fans who lost their lives at Hillsborough in 1989.

Everton fans took a banner to the stadium which read 'two clubs, one city', with supporters putting the rivalry with Liverpool aside to put their city first.

Liverpool fans will no doubt appreciate Everton fans taking the time to pay tribute to those Reds supporters, and Jamie Carragher joined in with the appreciation, tweeting that the banner was 'brilliant', seemingly touching the hearts of both the blue and red sides of Merseyside.
