Oumar Niasse, who almost left Everton in the summer, came in from the cold to score twice as Everton got their second league win of the season.
The teams went in level at the interval after the first half featured no attacking event of note. That said, Simon Francis will be grateful that he was not reprimanded by the referee for elbowing Wayne Rooney in the face. Rooney underwent length treatment and emerged for the second half stitched up. Josh King put the visitors ahead just after the break with a fine finish from 20 yards and Everton were fortunate not to concede again instantly when Pickford saved from Defoe. The Toffees' lack of focal point up front was clear but Niasse provided it when he came off the bench after the hour mark, notching up his first PL goal for Everton with a powerful finish. He grabbed his second 5 minutes later, finishing on the second attempt after Begovic parried his header. A huge win for Ronald Koeman's side. Sep 23 - 12:07 PM
