  2. 'I did what I know and put it in the net'

    FT: Cardiff 0-3 Everton

    Everton

    Everton striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin said: "We had a game plan of trying to dominate the ball well and we did that. It took us a while to get the goal but it was a great finish for Gylfi [Sigurdsson]."

    On his goal: "When I saw the added time go up, I knew there were still three minutes to play so enough time to get a goal. I put my head down and Idrissa [Gueye] put me through. I did what I know which is putting the ball int the net."

  3. 'We controlled the game'

    FT: Cardiff 0-3 Everton

    Everton

    Everton midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson said: "It was a tough evening and Cardiff are always tough to play against. It was important to get the first goal and I think we controlled it after that."

  4. FULL-TIME - Cardiff 0-3 Everton

    The referee brings the game to a halt and Everton are worthy winners after a dominant display.

    Cardiff's wait for a midweek win in the Premier League goes on.

  5. GOAL - Cardiff 0-3 Everton

  7. Post update

    Jacob Murphy is walking a tight rope here as he kicks the ball away in frustration. The forward is already on a yellow card of course.

  8. SUBSTITUTION

    Cardiff 0-2 Everton

    Cardiff players and fans alike will be glad to see the back of Gylfi Sigurdsson, who is replaced by Andre Gomes.

  9. Post update

    Cardiff 0-2 Everton

    Everton push forward once more and Gylfi Sigurdsson is at the heart of it.

    The midfielder knocks the ball through to Seamus Coleman who finds Ademola Lookman in the Cardiff area, but the substitute is unable to direct his shot on target.

  10. SUBSTITUTION

    Cardiff 0-2 Everton

    Everton follow suit by making their second change as Theo Walcott is taken off for Ademola Lookman.

    The last throw of the Cardiff dice as Kenneth Zohore is replaced by Danny Ward.

    Substitute Josh Murphy goes into the book not long after coming on for a lunge on Seamus Coleman.

  13. Post update

    Cardiff 0-2 Everton

    Cardiff have played some nice stuff in the second half but Aron Gunnarsson's long throw remains their biggest threat.

    The hosts are yet to register a shot on target in this game.

  14. Post update

    Cardiff 0-2 Everton

    The ball is whipped in from the subsequent free-kick but Cardiff clear the threat, only for Everton to come straight back at them.

    Gylfi Sigurdsson feeds Dominic Calvert-Lewin outside the Cardiff box, but the striker's long-range effort just drifts wide of the post.

  15. Post update

    Cardiff 0-2 Everton

    Everton are playing with a swagger in south Wales now and Joe Bennett's night is not getting any easier.

    The Cardiff defender concedes a foul in a dangerous area after taking out Seamus Coleman.

  16. SUBSTITUTION

    Cardiff 0-2 Everton

    Cardiff respond by making a double substitution.

    Nathaniel Mendez-Laing and Junior Hoilett make way as Josh Murphy and Callum Paterson come onto the field.

  17. GOAL - Cardiff 0-2 Everton

    Gylfi Sigurdsson

    That man Gylfi Sigurdsson does it again.

    Substitute Bernard makes an instant impact as he goes past Bruno Ecuele Manga with ease before drilling the ball across the face of goal.

    Cardiff clear the ball straight to Sigurdsson who is on hand to smash the ball past Neil Etheridge with a powerful strike.

    That's probably game over.

  18. Post update

    Cardiff 0-1 Everton

    Dafydd Pritchard

    BBC Sport Wales at the Cardiff City Stadium

    This has been a strong start to the second half from Cardiff and the home fans have responded to it.

    Kenneth Zohore made surging runs down the left channel something of a trademark of his in the Championship last season, and the Dane really left Michael Keane in his wake on that occasion.

    Despite the improvement, Cardiff still lack that quality in the final third - but they're giving themselves a fighting chance with this improvement.

  19. SUBSTITUTION

    Cardiff 0-1 Everton

    Are Everton settling for what they have?

    Richarlison is being replaced by fellow Brazilian Bernard.
