The game was drifting towards a draw until the 66th minute when Matty Cash fired Villa ahead with his first goal for the club, before an own goal by Lucas Digne made it 2-0.

As Everton buckled, substitute Leon Bailey made it 3-0 with a powerful drive after coming on as a substitute although his cameo performance was curtailed by an injury

The closest an injury-hit Everton came to scoring was moments before Cash’s opener when in-form Demarai Gray curled a shot just wide.

Everton have 10 points from five games in fifth spot with Villa moving up into the top half of the table with seven points from their five games.
