STOKE, England (AP) Everton ended a run of five English Premier League matches without a win in emphatic style by downing host Stoke 3-0 on Saturday.
The Toffees scored all three before the interval courtesy of Romelu Lukaku, Seamus Coleman, and Aaron Lennon.
Lukaku opened the scoring from the penalty spot after Stoke goalkeeper Jack Butland brought down Tom Cleverley inside the area.
Cleverley was also involved in the second, with his corner being headed home by Coleman.
Stoke gifted the visitors a third when defender Philipp Wollscheid's ball across the field was intercepted by Lennon, who raced toward goal before calmly slotting beyond Butland.
The win moved Everton up to seventh, two points ahead of Stoke in 11th.
