Everton's double proves too much for Twente

Everton scored a goal in each half as 2 win at Twente on Friday, preventing the home side from joining PSV Eindhoven and AZ Alkmaar at the top of the league.

Everton scored the only goal in the first half before a frantic final 20 minutes saw the two teams combine for four goals.

Luuk de Jong scored his first goal of the game in the 73rd minute to level the match, but Darl Douglas restored the lead for Heracles before Everton's second goal arrived three minutes later.

De Jong pulled a goal back for Twente but it came in stoppage time, proving too late for Steve McClaren's side to claim anything from the match.
