Blues cruise to Swans win
Everton's fine start to the season continued as they eased to a comfortable 3-0 victory over Swansea at the Liberty Stadium.
Swansea goalkeeper Michel Vorm was forced to make three saves inside the first three minutes. He grasped a Victor Anichebe header at the second attempt after the striker had got on the end of Leighton Baines' whipped delivery, before twice denying Kevin Mirallas.
The opener arrived when Ashley Williams allowed Marouane Fellaini to control and tee up Anichebe to fire home from close range, although replays suggested the Belgian had used an arm.
Pablo Hernandez saw his chip headed off the line by Phil Jagielka amd Ki Sung-yueng went closer still for the Swans, clipping an effort inches wide from 25 yards with Tim Howard beaten. But Everton re-asserted their authority with a wonderful goal. Neville started a move that saw Fellaini and Steven Pienaar combine superbly to tee up Mirallas. Vorm did brilliantly to palm the initial strike onto the crossbar, but the Belgian converted the rebound.
Swansea's hopes of a comeback were dealt a terminal blow when Nathan Dyer saw red. The winger had already been booked for dissent when a clumsy tackle on Baines earned him a second yellow.
Fellaini midfielder wrapped the scoring up as he headed home from Baines' cross with the aid of a deflection off Williams. Swansea's day was summed up when Jonathan de Guzman's superb free-kick was kept out by the post.
