Everton have pulled off a resounding 4-0 Premier League home win over Pep Guardiola's Manchester City.

Romelu Lukaku, Kevin Mirallas, Tom Davies and Ademola Lookman got the goals as Ronald Koeman's Toffees managed to secure a surprising scoreline at Goodison Park.

Everton started the game well, although City had a penalty shout waved away when Raheem Sterling was felled in the box in the first half.

And it was Everton who hit the front on 34 minutes when Mirallas squared the ball for Lukaku to score his 13th goal of the season.

Mirallas would then find the net himself two minutes after the break, with the Belgian finding the net with his effort.

With 11 minutes to go, 18 year old Merseyside native Tom Davies, who was born on the same day that David Beckham was sent off against Argentina in the 1998 World Cup (June 30th 1998 to be precise), scored a very popular goal among the home fans. 

Darting between defenders on the right flank, the Everton academy graduate who has not hit double figures for league appearances yet, received the return before beating City goalkeeper Claudio Bravo with his effort on goal.

The ball was on its way and although his team-mate Lukaku attempted to get a touch on the ball, the Belgian centre forward did not make a connection, meaning it was Davies' first goal for the club.

And a debutant would grab the fourth goal. New signing Ademola Lookman, who arrived from Charlton Athletic on January 5th for £11 million finished precisely from an angle to make it 4-0 in stoppage time.

The result keeps Everton seventh, while Guardiola is under pressure with City outside the Top 4 in fifth.

Their Premier League away form will be a concern for the manager with the loss at Goodison Park their fourth defeat on the road this season, following setbacks at Tottenham, Liverpool and Leicester City earlier in the campaign.
