We started the game really, really well with a lot of the attacking work coming from Baines and Davies who linked up tremendously well but the first goal was a move started and finished wholeheartedly in Everton.
Barkley collected the ball and slotted in Tom Davies who managed to latch on to it on the stretch to cut back for Dom Calvert-Lewin to net his first goal for the Blues with his first ever shot on target. It’s always nice to see a young player score their first goal for the clubs and this was no different.
After that, Morgan Schneiderlin was unfortunately taken off injured, and it was only then you realised how well he was playing, we missed him without question. But then again, when your comparison is Gareth Barry you’ll always look a world beater.
We then took it very easy up until the introduction of Enner Valencia in the second half who really did change the game, and his relationship with Lukaku is almost symbiotic. Lukaku knocked a ball over the Hull canopy for Valencia slot home to secure the three points.
But the scoring wasn’t finished. Lukaku hadn’t arrived.
When someone finally decided to play the ball ahead of Lukaku for him to run on to, he steamrolled through an unfortunate Hull defence to blast home past Jakupovic.
And with Everton’s third goal in 10 minutes, Lukaku had rounded out a solid performance by rounding Jakupovic.
A bow to the Gwladys and the performance was finished.
