Everton beat Fleetwood in lively game

Richarlison
Richarlison’s two goals were his first of the season

Everton beat Fleetwood in a lively Carabao Cup game to set up a fourth-round tie against West Ham.

Richarlison headed the Toffees ahead and then doubled their lead after a one-two with Alex Iwobi.

Mark Duffy gave League One Fleetwood hope but Iwobi swept home from eight yards a minute later.

Callum Camps scored a bicycle kick for Joey Barton’s side before Bernard killed the game off and Moise Kean netted in injury time.

There will be question marks about Everton and England goalkeeper Jordan Pickford’s performance again.

His pass to half-time substitute Duffy let hosts Fleetwood score their opener and Camps’ overhead kick was straight at him.

Carlo Ancelotti named a strong team as Everton extended their winning start to the season to four games.

They dominated the first half, with Bernard and Iwobi going close before Richarlison headed in from Bernard’s cross and netted again from Iwobi’s backheel.

Iwobi scored and assisted in the same match for the first time in his 180th club appearance.

Fleetwood were much better after the break and a shock looked possible until Bernard’s sweet strike on the bounce.

Substitute Kean scored right at the end from Niels Nkounkou’s backheel.

Everton, who beat West Brom by the same scoreline on Saturday, have scored five or more goals in consecutive matches for the first time since September 1964.

Everton manager Ancelotti did not blame Pickford for Fleetwood’s goals.

“I think the first goal, it was not any individual mistakes. We passed the ball back to Jordan and it was a really difficult ball,” said the Italian.

“You want to build up from the back – but when there is not risk. If it is risky it is not good. We can concede a goal like we did tonight and it is a good lesson for the future.

“I didn’t speak to him. I have to speak with the players that were involved when we were building up. He was not the only one.”

Fleetwood boss Barton said his side “shot themselves in the foot”.

“We adjusted at half-time, brought Duffy on and then we got a gift by closing the keeper down,” he added.

“Then we shoot ourselves in the foot by conceding in a few minutes and then we got back into it again – but they have the quality to pick you off on the counter.

“I am pleased we made it into a cup tie because at half-time it looked like being a long 45 minutes.

“It pays us enormous respect that they turned up and played in the correct manner, especially when you look at the gulf in class at both clubs. 5-2 probably flatters them at the end, but they were way above us tonight.”
