Dominic Calvert- Lewin hit a hat -trick and James Rodriguez bagged his first Premier League goal as Everton crushed 10 – man West Bromwich Albion 5- 2 to extend their perfect start to the season on Saturday.
Carlo Ancelotti’s side fell behind to Grady Diangana’s early goal at Goodison Park.
But Calvert-Lewin equalised and James put them ahead before West Brom imploded.
Kieran Gibbs was dismissed for pushing James in the face in first half stoppage- time.
Then Albion boss Slaven Bilic was sent to the stands after storming onto the pitch for a furious rant at referee Mike Dean.
Matheus Pereira equalised for Albion after the interval , but Michael Keane restored Everton’s lead and Calvert -Lewin sealed the points with his second and third goals.
At 23, Calvert Lewin is the youngest Englishman to score a Premier League hat – trick for Everton.
After a summer spending spree, Ancelotti is under pressure to deliver a big improvement on last season’s 12th place finish and the early signs are promising.
Having beaten Tottenham in their opening game last weekend, Everton have started a Premier League season with consecutive victories for the first time since 2012 – 13.
Calvert Lewin already has four goals and Colombia midfielder James, making his first home appearance since his £ 12 million from Real Madrid, looks a quality addition.
If West Brom are to avoid an immediate return to the Championship, will have to improve their defence rapidly after shipping eight goals in successive defeats.
