Everton midfielder Tom Cleverley has been in great form in recent weeks.

Cleverley was at the heart of Everton’s fantastic 3-0 victory against Stoke at the Britannia Stadium on Saturday.

Inside ten minutes, the former Manchester United midfielder raced through to collect Bryan Oviedo’s through ball and was sent sprawling by Jack Butland for a penalty kick, which was duly dispatched by Romelu Lukaku.

The 26-year-old then whipped in a corner which was met by the head of full-back Seamus Coleman to put the Toffees two goals ahead.

Aaron Lennon then added a third before half-time, as Roberto Martinez’s side moved up to eighth in the table.
