Kevin Mirallas’ quick fire brace helped Everton cruise to a 4-0 pre-season victory over Swindon.

Mirallas was one of nine half-time changes made by Roberto Martinez and scored twice in the first eight second half minutes.

Romelu Lukaku got the third and Conor McAleny capped a fine display with the fourth goal having had a hand in the previous three.

Elsewhere there was a Blues debut for Tom Cleverley, while Gerard Deulofeu made a second Everton bow after his return this summer.

Everton could have been behind in the first minute when Fabio Robert forced Tim Howard into an excellent save after poor defending.

Then the Blues set their stall out and began to move the ball around. First Seamus Coleman played in Deulofeu down the right but the Irishman couldn’t get a decent contact to convert the Spaniard’s return cross.

The ex-Barcelona man was in again shortly after when an only a poor touch prevented him striking on goal.

And Steven Naismith was well denied by Tyrell Belford after he sprinted through and struck on goal on the quarter hour.

At the other end Michael Smith’s shot from the edge was deflected over but Everton has the majority of the ball.

Deulofeu, increasingly a factor, reeled off a couple of stopovers before forcing Belford to beat his drive away before the 30 minute mark but Jon Obika kept the Blues defence honest with an effort from distance.

Robins forward Nathan Byrne curled wide soon after as Swindon finished the half as the better side. Deulofeu’s effort before the break was a mirror image of the one he saw saved earlier before the ref brought the period to a premature close with 90 seconds still remaining before the 45 minute mark.

Martinez made nine changes at the interval with only Brendan Galloway and Tyias Browning remaining on the field.

And the new look side quickly took the lead.

On 49 minutes McAleny played in Mirallas with a fabulously disguised pass and the Belgian rounded the keeper to finish in composed fashion.

The same two players were involved in the second three minutes later. This time McAleny fed Romelu Lukaku in the inside left channel and he centred for compatriot Mirallas to virtually walk the ball into the net.

McAleny went close himself on 55 minutes, curling an effort a yard wide of the post from the edge of the box.

The youngster had another chance amid a goalmouth scramble which also saw Leon Osman and Lukaku denied on 65 minutes.

Joel Robles denied Obika shortly afterwards but there was bad news for Everton when Mo Besic pulled up and was replaced by Jonjoe Kenny.

The same Swindon man placed another strike just wide with 20 minutes to go but it was Everton who looked likelier to register a further goal.

Debutant Cleverley and Tyias Browning cold have made it three late on before Lukaku and McAleny struck late on.

Everton first half team: Howard, Jagielka (c), Kone, Naismith, McCarthy, Barkley, Deulofeu, Pienaar, Coleman, Browning, Galloway. 

Second half team:  Joel, Hibbert, Browning, Barry, Galloway, Besic (Kenny, 68), Cleverley, McAleny, Osman, Mirallas, Lukaku.
