Gallery: Images from Everton defeat

Here's an image gallery from Villa's 3-1 defeat to Everton.

Check out our MATCH IMAGES.

Villa suffered a blow after just five minutes when Ramiro Funes Mori converted a Kevin Mirallas corner with the first real attack of the game.

And from there it was an uphill struggle for the claret and blues.

The home side created a succession of chances with Joel Robles making saves from Jordan Ayew and Ashley Westwood, while Micah Richards also sent an acrobatic effort just off target.

But the Toffees sprung a counter attack on the half-hour mark - Aaron Lennon side-footing a Mirallas cutback past Brad Guzan.

Romelu Lukaku scored from close range to make it 3-0 on 60 minutes to put the result beyond doubt.

However, Villa did manage a consolation when Rudy Gestede powered home a header from a Jordan Veretout cross.
