Diaby and Menas created great pressure in Everton’s defense and passed the ball to Bailey. The winger made a great cutback from the byline. McGinn in the box sent the home team into the net.
Four minutes later another opportunity came in front of Villa. Watkins was trying to get a shot at the goal from a close distance by entering Everton’s d-box. But Pickford prevented him from stopping. Watkins’ effort was cleared off the goal line by Patterson. But by that time the referee blew the penalty whistle. Brazilian midfielder Douglas Luiz doubled the gap by scoring from spot kick.
