The Nigerian winger put in a brilliant display at Highbury Stadium which secured the Toffees progress to the next round of the cup competition.
Alex Iwobi scored a goal and provided an assist as Everton continued their unbeaten start to the season with a 5-2 win over Fleetwood Town in the third round of the Carabao Cup.
Iwobi made his first appearance of the season in the victory over West Bromwich Albion at the weekend but made the starting XI this time.
Everton did not let their guards down on Wednesday with Richarlison giving them the lead in the 22nd minute, courtesy of Bernard’s assist.
The Nigeria international turned provider for the Toffees second goal, playing a lovely backheel to Richarlison after a brilliant one-two with the Brazilian.
Fleetwood were not going to give up so easily and pulled one back through second-half substitute Mark Duffy two minutes after the restart.
Everton would go on to extend their lead not too long after thanks to Iwobi, Nigerian tapping home with consummate ease after being fed by Richarlison. It marked the first time the Arsenal academy graduate scored and assisted in the same match for the first time in his club career.
