Hull remain planted in the relegation zone, while Everton - who face Liverpool after the worldwide break - move level on points with fifth-placed Arsenal.

If he does go, Everton will need to make big-name signings, especially with Romelu Lukaku now also seemingly destined to depart the Merseyside club.

"The fans love Romelu Lukaku and everyone loves Rom".

Substitute Valencia had been on the pitch just over a minute when he played a neat one-two with Lukaku to get in behind the Hull defence and fire home from close range.

"It was set up by my good mate Davo [Tom Davies] and you couldn't have written it any better", said the teenager.

Ross Barkley fed a pinpoint pass through to Tom Davies down the right and the midfielder's low cross was met by Calvert-Lewin for his first goal for Everton.

The Belgian forward has been in the spotlight lately with the new contract shenanigans that he's been embroiled in, and Koeman wants to ensure there's no distractions for the player as Everton try to keep the pressure up on the top six teams.

It's up to the club to get the deal over the line'.

"We kept the momentum".

The result pushes Ronald Koeman's side above Manchester United in sixth while Marco Silva's men find themselves three points adrift in 18th.

Huddlestone was dismissed in the 73rd minute when referee Paul Tierney ruled his lunge on Lukaku was worthy of a straight red card. But it gave us more space to kill the game and we did that.

"I couldn't have wished for a better opportunity".

His double on Saturday, with both goals in stoppage time, may not have been the decisive factor in putting the Toffees level on points with fifth-placed Arsenal, but it at least showed his professionalism can not be called into question. "It decided the game".
