Wayne Rooney inspired Everton to battle back from a goal down to beat Swansea 3-1 at Goodison Park, as the Toffees continue to excel under Sam Allardyce.

Bottom side Swansea were in desperate need of a good result and got off to a great start, with Leroy Fer netting from close-range after a corner.

However, just before the break, Dominic Calvert-Lewin continued his productive season by firing home after Wayne Rooney’s penalty was turned onto the post by Lukasz Fabianski.

Just after the hour-mark, Rooney fed Gylfi Sigurdsson, who produced a magnificent long-range effort which arrowed into the back of the net of his former club.

The Toffees then sealed the deal on 73, with Rooney this time converting a spot-kick after Martin Olsson felled Jonjoe Kenny in the Swans’ box.

That goal saw Rooney hit double figures for the 12th time in a Premier League season, as the 32-year-old continued to enjoy a potent revival.

Maybe more out-of-form players should apply for community service in a garden centre!

The win means that, under Allardyce, the Toffees have picked up a hugely impressive 10 points from four games, a haul which moves them up to ninth in the table.

As for Paul Clement and his struggling Swans, they stay bottom courtesy of their measly tally of 12 points from 18 games.
