Six minutes later, Villa doubled their lead through Luiz’s cool penalty, after Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford fouled forward Ollie Watkins in the area.

Everton defender Michael Keane was to blame for Villa’s third as his miscued clearance fell to Bailey who hammered home a fierce strike to spark an early exodus of unhappy away fans.

Substitute Duran completed the rout in the 75th minute, calmly slotting past Pickford after being allowed to run through on goal following a defensive mix-up between Ashley Young and Keane –SuperSport.
