Summer signing Demarai Gray gave Everton the lead in the first half before Calvert-Lewin wrapped up the points via a spot kick just two minutes before the hour mark.

Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane is a big target for Premier League holders Manchester City in this summer's transfer window. Manchester City started the current transfer window with a serious interest in both Jack Grealish and Harry Kane.
