The Toffees eased past the Championship side 2-0 in what was ultimately a comfortable win for the Merseyside club, with Dominic Calvert-Lewin scoring a brace in the opening 10 minutes to secure the result for Marco Silva’s side.
Heading into the game on the back of two defeats in the Premier League, supporters expected the Toffees to yet again disappoint at Hillsborough, yet goals from the 22-year-old England youth international sealed the win for the visitors.
Progression to the fourth round of the League Cup was unexpected from fans, and some on social media expressed their surprise shortly after the full-time whistle.
Here is what some Everton supporters had to say about the result on Twitter…

Well done blues. Tricky away tie there. You’ve definitely earned the right to get knocked out by Crawley in the 4th Round. #COYB
