Moyes has lost all three games away to former club Everton with Manchester United, Sunderland and West Ham, without his teams scoring a goal.

Captain for the night Rooney's first goal came in the 18th minute as he headed in on the follow-up after his penalty was saved by Hart, and he slotted home his second 10 minutes later.

After his ill-fated spell in charge of England ended in 2016 - which lasted just one game - Big Sam joined Crystal Palace and successfully kept the Eagles up last season before stepping down back in May.

"The third goal, it fell to me, Joe's out of his goal and I thought I'll have a go and I hit it sweet", Rooney said. I asked them to be men tonight.

"Great hat-trick, great display from Wayne". I'm delighted for the club. With just about their first risky attack of the game, Gylfi Sigurdsson played Calvert-Lewin in one on one with Joe Hart, and the England 'keeper came flying out of his goal, bringing down the young forward as he dived for the ball.

He added: "We've got to give thanks to David Unsworth. Goodison must be a fortress for the rest of the season if we are to finish in the top half".

Alan Pardew has defended his appointment at West Brom and Sam Allardyce's at Everton, insisting they have a "history of delivering", reports Sky Sports.

Allardyce, sat alongside Everton's major shareholder Farhad Moshiri and chairman Bill Kenwright at the game, will surely have taken great encouragement from what he saw hours after the club had announced he was to finalise terms on becoming their new manager.

U23 boss David Unsworth was named caretaker on a short-term basis but the former Everton defender has struggled to improve results over the past month.
