For the penalty taker, it is as close to perfection as one can get. The goalkeeper usually ends up with egg on their face. It's the panenka!

Step forward Ross Barkley and Rob Elliott who were the main characters on front of an audience of 36,000. The England international had already beaten Elliott from the penalty spot previously in the game. His first goal was more conventional than what they crowd saw for his second goal of the game.

A panenka is one of the most enduring, yet sickening sights in the game. You cannot help but be amazed by the bravery of the penalty taker, but also feel sickened for the hapless goalkeeper.

The 3-0 win eased the pressure on Everton manager Roberto Martinez. Since New Year's Day, Everton failed to win a league game in January despite advancing to the Fifth Round of the FA Cup. Barkley's goals on Wednesday night along with an Aaron Lennon strike made life happier for Everton's fans.
