• Much-changed side easily beaten by Swansea

    Swansea City 3 - 0 Everton

    Everton made their customary meek exit from the League Cup with a comprehensive defeat to Swansea City, their first in history to the Welsh side. Roberto Martinez made seven changes to the team that lost to Crystal Palace but, while his team started fairly brightly, they fell behind to Nathan Dyer's first-half strike. Romelu Lukaku replaced Samuel Eto'o at half-time and fired narrowly over but Swansea doubled their lead midway through the second half when Sigurdsson turned home after Distin had headed off his own crossbar. Marvin Emnes completed the Blues' misery with a late third.

    Everton went from elation to despondency in the space of four days as they followed their handsome win over Wolfsburg with a dismal, error-strewn home defeat to Crystal Palace. Romelu Lukaku's goal looked to have set them on their way to an important victory but Palace turned the match on its head with an equaliser from the spot after half an hour and then goals by Frazier Campbell and Yannick Bolasie that made it 3-1. Leighton Baines pulled a goal back with a penalty with seven minutes left but the Blues couldn't salvage a point.
