Everton confirmed their early season promise as they cruised to a 3-1 victory at Villa Park - and on this evidence Paul Lambert's side will face a Barclays Premier League relegation battle.

First-half goals from Steven Pienaar, Marouane Fellaini and Nikica Jelavic demonstrated the visitor's superiority as they followed up their victory over Manchester United in emphatic style.

Karim El Ahmadi scored a consolation effort but Villa owner Randy Lerner needs to produce his cheque book before the transfer window closes to bolster a squad lacking in league experience.
