Fellaini inspires as Dyer sees red
Everton's impressive start to the season continued as they secured a comfortable 3-0 victory against Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium today. The Toffees never looked in trouble and Victor Anichebe fired home from close range after 21 minutes, with Kevin Mirallas doubling the advantage just before half-time after fine midfield play.
Swansea, who have stuttered since winning their first two matches, went close through Angel Rangel and Ki Sung-yueng, but their hopes of a comeback were ended early in the second half when Nathan Dyer, a substitute, was sent off. Marouane Fellaini, Everton's brilliant midfield player, sealed the victory to put Everton joint top of the table, albeit briefly. There was, however, a suspicion of hand ball before Fellaini scored.
David Moyes, the Everton manager, said: "Both the result and performance were very good but the result is the most important thing. We could have scored six or seven but they also had three or four opportunities but our goalkeeper made some good saves."
