LIVERPOOL, England — Everton consigned Aston Villa to a fourth straight defeat by winning 3-0 at Goodison Park on Saturday in a match featuring the return after injury of Ross Barkley.

Phil Jagielka scored for the second straight match to give Everton an 18th-minute lead and Villa's American goalkeeper, Brad Guzan, let Romelu Lukaku's shot squirm away from him to make it 2-0 in the 48th.
