Stratton hid his penalty in front of the Gwladys Street End and celebrated wildly in front of the fans outside the net.

Ukrainian international Vitaliy Mykolenko captained Everton against his former club in an emotional night at Goodison Park attended by some 2,000 Ukrainian refugees.

Everton won the game 3–0, with newcomer Dwight McNeil coming off the bench twice to score a goal after Dominic Calvert-Lewin opened the scoring within four minutes.
