Everton's impressive start to the season continued - as did striker Nikica's Jelavic's goalscoring run - against a Southampton side whose top-flight inexperience was exposed at Goodison Park in a 3-1 win for the home side.
David Moyes' team equalled their best points haul of 13 from six Barclays Premier League matches from the 2004-05 season to cement their place just three points behind leaders Chelsea.
Jelavic scored twice to take his tally to 10 in his last 11 league matches after Leon Osman had cancelled out Gaston Ramirez's early opener.
