Sunday Premier League: Everton hammers Black Cats, Saints take out Bournemouth

Everton 6-2 Sunderland
Everton welcomed Sunderland into Goodison Park and sent them away with a beating they won't soon forget.

The Toffees got their first goal in the 19th minute from wonderkid Gerard Deulofeu. Arouna Kone followed with his first of a wonderful night in the 31st. The Black Cats actually managed to level the score with a goal on either end of halftime. Jermaine Defoe scored in the final minute before the whistle and Steven Fletcher's equalizer came in the 50th minute. Everton wouldn't let them get too confident in themselves, however. Sebastian Coates put one onto his own net to give Everton the lead back in the 55th. Romelu Lukaku returned them to a two goal advantage five minutes later. Kone bagged his second after all of two more minutes and the hat trick came in the 76th.

Everton jumps to ninth place, four points behind a top four spot. Sunderland, meanwhile, continues to fight the relegation demons as they sit in 19th with only six points through three matches.

Southampton 2-0 Bournemouth
Saints got a pair of mid-first half goals to lift them to victory over the newly promoted Cherries.

Steven Davis gave them the lead in the 31st minute and Graziano Pelle doubled it five minutes later. Bournemouth kept their heads up and managed to stay in the game despite the two goal disadvantage. They kept their attacking heads on and managed to force Southampton to defend their tails off as the game went on. They gt a bit of a boost when Victor Wanyama was sent off for his second yellow card in the 78th. Unfortunately for the Cherries, they were unable to capitalize on the manpower advantage.

Southampton leap frog over Everton into seventh place, sitting three points back of the top four. Bournemouth holds onto a surviving spot with eight points in 11 games, good for 17th place.
