It was a first career hat-trick for Calvert-Lewin, who scored a frist hat-trick for Everton since Wayne Rooney in 2007.

New arrival, James Rodriguez also scored on his home debut and Roy Keane too, to help their team continue their impressive start to the Premier League.

Promoted West Brom scored two goals courtesy of Grady Diangana and Costa Pereira, but were reduced to 10 men when Kieran Gibbs and manager Slaven Bilic were sent off – Gibbs dismissed for pushing Rodriguez.

Everton have won their opening two league fixtures for the first time in eight years.
