Ross Barkley enhanced his ever-growing reputation by scoring from a late free-kick to give Everton a 2-1 win against Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium.

A fierce strike from Seamus Coleman had given the visitors a 66th-minute lead with a ferocious strike, but they were pegged back when Bryan Oviedo put Dwight Tiendalli's off-target effort into his own net.

But Everton were not to be denied by the Swans as midfielder Barkley stepped up with six minutes to go to beat Gerhard Tremmel with a strike which nicked the underside of the bar on its way in.
