Everton manager David Moyes hailed a 'fabulous' performance from his side after they eased to a 3-0 victory over 10-man Swansea at the Liberty Stadium.
The Toffees continued their strong start to the season as Victor Anichebe and Kevin Mirallas found the back of the net in the first half before Marouane Fellaini added their third late on to cap another imperious individual display.
A nightmare afternoon for the Swans also saw Nathan Dyer dismissed in the second half, just 12 minutes after making his entrance as a substitute at the break.
The result saw the Merseysiders move, at least temporarily, second in the early Premier League standings and Moyes was delighted with his side.
He told Sky Sports: "The performance was fabulous.
"The result is always the most important thing but the performance matched the result as well. Both were very good.
"We could have scored, probably, six or seven goals. We didn't, but they had three or four good opportunities and our goalkeeper thankfully made a couple of really good saves as well.
"The players are playing really well with a lot of confidence and a lot of self-belief."
Mirallas' goal for the Toffees was particularly easy on the eye, with Fellaini starting the move from the other end of the pitch.
Moyes added: "It was a great goal. I thought that Kevin Mirallas had a real input.
"The games are like that at the moment. A lot of the Premier League games have lots of open action.
"That's why they had chances as well, and we had them."
Replays show Fellaini appeared to handle the ball while providing the assist to Anichebe's goal.
But asked if Everton were due that stroke of luck after having two goals controversially ruled out in Monday's 2-2 draw against Newcastle, Moyes said: "No, if the referee got it wrong then he got it wrong. I didn't see it. It needed an eagle eye the way it's been spotted."
