Everton secured their first Premier League victory of the season in impressive fashion as Dominic Calvert-Lewin completed a fine 3-1 win over Brentford.
Abdoulaye Doucoure’s sixth-minute opener gave Sean Dyche’s side an early platform before Mathias Jensen levelled against the run of play (28).
But the visitors would not be denied a first win since the final day of the last campaign as James Tarkowski, on his return to Brentford, headed in Dwight McNeil’s corner before Calvert-Lewin latched onto James Garner’s pass to seal the victory.
Everton rise out of the relegation zone into 15th in the table while Brentford drop to 12th.
Calvert-Lewin said: “You can see the emotion at the end with the lads and the fans. It’s been a tough start to the season. It’s been frustrating personally to not be involved as much as I would have liked.
“Football is a funny old game. When I came off against Aston Villa my own fans booed me off. Today they cheered me. I’ll relish this and take the rest with a pinch of salt.”
