Rooney had scored a back post goal and converted the rebound of his own penalty kick to give the Toffees a 2-0 lead at the break.

But it was his third that had the Everton faithful exploding for their hometown hero, a fierce strike from midfield to leave Joe Hart helpless.

Rooney is not being kind to his former England goalkeeper and ex-Everton boss.
