Nikica Jelavic was again on the scoresheet as Everton defeated friendly opponents Real Betis yesterday.

Jelavic continued his fine build-up to the new Barclays Premier League campaign with an impressive first-half strike after good work by Kevin Mirallas to net his fourth goal of the summer.

Mirallas doubled the tally in freak circumstances as Betis goalkeeper Stephan Andersen fumbled the Belgian's corner into the net just after the hour.

Brian Rodriguez claimed a last-minute consolation for the Spanish side.
