Mikel Arteta struck twice as Everton kept their European push alive with a crushing 5-1 win over Barclays Premier League strugglers Hull.
The Spaniard found the net either side of a sublime Tom Cairney equaliser to spare the blushes of profligate striker Ayegbeni Yakubu, who missed a penalty in the first half at Goodison Park.
But the Toffees then upped a gear to secure a convincing victory with a Richard Garcia own goal and further efforts from substitutes Landon Donovan and Jack Rodwell.
