The Toffees were the victims of their own downfall at times as they were dismantled by second half goals from Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen, with man of the match Heung-min Son opening the scoring in the first period.

With most of the leading clubs idle, and third-placed Chelsea held to a goalless draw by Leicester City, attention switched to the scrap at the bottom with Crystal Palace also winning against Burnley who provided further evidence that their season may be running out of steam.
