Sunderland bowed out of the Carabao Cup last night after a tame 3-0 defeat at Everton.

The Premier League side were too good for Simon Grayson's Championship strugglers, who failed to seriously threaten the home side.

There was a brilliant stat that the Sunderland starting XI contained more appearances for Everton than the entire Everton starting XI had, but there were also some other key numbers.

Here's a round-up from the game:

Possession: Everton 68%; SAFC 32%

Shots: Everton 17; SAFC 6

On target: Everton 6; SAFC 2

Corners: Everton 6; SAFC 2

Fouls: Everton 12; SAFC 10
