The first half sprang into life on 40 minutes, when a ferocious angled shot from Bukayo Saka flew past Jordan Pickford.

Gabriel Martinelli added a second five minutes later, finishing low after Saka had dispossessed Idrissa Gueye.

It was the Brazillian's third goal in as many matches and his 10th in the Premier League this term, the first time he has reached double figures in a season.

Everton suffered their biggest Premier League defeat since their previous trip to Arsenal, a 5-1 loss on the final day of last season.

Liverpool scored two goals in four second-half minutes to earn a 2-0 home win over Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Darwin Nunez thought he had given Liverpool the lead on 65 minutes, but his strike was overturned after a VAR review because of a foul by Diogo Jota in the build-up.

The Reds did not have to wait long for the breakthrough, as Virgil van Dijk headed them into a 73rd-minute lead.

Mohamed Salah then struck from close range in the 77th minute and now needs just one more goal to equal Robbie Fowler as Liverpool's all-time Premier League top scorer.

Liverpool climb to sixth after a third win in four matches, and a fourth straight clean sheet. They are now within six points of fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspur with a match in hand. Wolves stay 15th on 24 points.
