Rafael Benitez oversaw a comeback victory in his first match in charge of Everton, the Toffees beating Southampton 3-1 at Goodison Park.
The hosts fell behind in the 22nd minute, when centre-back Michael Keane lost the ball to Che Adams, who played in Adam Armstrong for a clinical debut goal.
Benitez’s half-time team talk prompted an equaliser within two minutes of the restart, as Andros Townsend headed the ball into the box and Richarlison finished from close range.
Abdoulaye Doucoure put Everton ahead in style 14 minutes from time, turning smartly before unleashing a fierce strike into the top corner.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin put the Toffees out of sight five minutes later, diving to head in Richarlison’s cross.
