Antony Evans scored a superb free-kick and Con Ouzounidis was also on target as Everton beat Swansea City 2-0 to move up to fourth and boost their Division 1 title bid.

Evans (pictured) opened the scoring on 21 minutes at Goodison Park. After being fouled, he curled the resulting free-kick into the top corner of the net.

Ouzounidis headed in Everton's second from Conor Grant's free-kick in the 76th minute, ending Swansea's eight-match unbeaten run.

The win meant Everton replaced Swansea in fourth position, seven points behind leaders Leicester City with two matches in hand.
