Everton provisionally moved fourth in the Premier League after thrashing Stoke 4-0 at Goodison Park on Saturday.
Gerard Deulofeu scored in the 45th with a left-footed shot from the six-yard box before Seamus Coleman added a second four minutes after the interval.
Bryan Oviedo's low strike from outside the area made it 3-0 in the 58th before Belgium forward Romelu Lukaku, on loan from Chelsea, grabbed a fourth at close range in the 79th.
The Toffees have 24 points from 13 games and are undefeated at home in the league throughout the calendar year. Stoke, hovering near the relegation zone, has 13 from 13.
