Arouna Koné scores two late goals as Everton cruise past Yeovil

When memories of Ronald Koeman’s first win at Goodison Park have faded in others’ minds they will linger long with one Evertonian. Ross Barkley captained his home-town club for the first time and marked a poignant occasion with a goal and the game’s outstanding performance as last season’s semi-finalists ensured smooth progress. They have not exited at this stage since 2001 and while Yeovil have a proud giantkilling pedigree, they have not eliminated top-flight opposition from any competition since 1949. A gulf of 79 league places proved too wide to bridge for Yeovil, a club who could name only five substitutes.
