Toffees teach Young Boys a tough lesson; FOOTBALL.

Byline: Alex Hilton

EVERTON got their Europa League knockout-stage campaign off to a flyer with a 4-1 thumping of Young Boys in Bern last night.

The Toffees had to fight back from a goal down early on but a Romelu Lukaku hat-trick and a Seamus Coleman strike means Roberto Martinez's men have one foot in the last 16.

The only black mark for the Merseysiders was the sending-off of John Stones in the 63rd minute.

Everton shortened from 18-1 to 12-1 to lift the trophy after their win while Napoli have also been cut after beating Trabzonspor 4-0. The Italians were 12-1 for glory but are now single figures.
