EPL: Everton back in top of the league as James Rodriguez scored twice

Everton’s Dream continues as they are back at the top of the league after four wins out of four.

James Rodriguez scored his second and third Everton goals as the hosts downed Brighton

Dominic Calvert-Lewin one goal short of double figures for the season. It was already Everton’s best start to a Premier League season before Brighton were added to their list of victims, but with seven wins out of seven in all competitions, Carlo Ancelotti and his players now have historians looking at records more than a century old.

Just under 20 minutes later Rodriguez was doing it all again, his second goal a carbon copy of his first, except this time it was Abdoulaye Doucouré who supplied the cross.

With the victory, Everton is in the top of the table with 12 points and Brighton is in 14th place with 3 points.

In another match of Premier League, Newcastle beats Burnley by 3-0.
