Calvert-Lewin, Rodriguez star as Everton thrashes West Brom

WBA fans

Ajayi, who played a key role in the promotion of West Brom, was handed his second appearance of the season against the Toffees, partnering Kyle Bartley at the heart of the defence while Iwobi returned for Everton, starting from the bench, having been left out in their opening game against Tottenham Hotspur.

West Brom struggled on their first game back, losing heavily to Leicester and showing that some of the side remains somewhat at Championship level after promotion.

However, the former Arsenal star came on as a 71st-minute substitute in Everton's big win at Goodison Park on Saturday.

Everton faces West Brom tonight in the Premier League tonight in the match-day two for the two sides.

Interestingly, it was the Baggies that started in front as Grady Diangana shot the visitors in front in the 10th minute.


Everton striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin was full of pride after his hat-trick in victory over West Brom.

A dramatic end to the first half saw James Rodriguez put Everton ahead with a clinical finish, before Albion defender Kieran Gibbs and boss Slaven Bilic were both sent off.

Gary Lineker was impressed with Everton's performance and was especially complimentary of Calvert-Lewin and Rodriguez during the game:Well, this game is making an early claim to be top of the @BBCMOTD running order as Keane makes it 3-2.

It is also worthy to note that Calvert-Lewin has scored more Premier League goals under Carlo Ancelotti than he has under any other manager in his career.
