Everton 4-0 Yeovil Town

Ross Barkley
Ross Barkley dedicated his goal to Everton scout Sid Benson, who died last week.

Everton overpowered Yeovil Town with a 4-0 win at Goodison Park to reach the EFL Cup third round.

Ashley Williams and Yannick Bolasie made full debuts in a strong line-up but it was Aaron Lennon who nudged in James McCarthy's cross for the opener.

England man Ross Barkley curled in a second-half free-kick as the Toffees pulled clear of spirited Yeovil.

Arouna Kone's late double gave the score-line an unflattering look that the League Two visitors didn't deserve.

Everton manager Ronald Koeman gave striker Romelu Lukaku a first start of the season, the Belgium forward completing 90 minutes for the first time since recovering from a heel injury.
