FULL-TIME. Atalanta were very good indeed, they eased off a little in the second half, perhaps; but Everton were outclassed and some might even describe aspects of that performance as shambolic.
Three minutes to be added on here.
Atalanta fans are singing and waving their banners, Ronald Koeman looks thoroughly miserable. After a showing like this, it's not surprising.
Slightly overpowered ball from Gomez towards Cornelius, who isn't quick enough to respond.
- OffBryan CristanteAtalanta
- OnJasmin KurticAtalanta
Kurtic is on, replacing Cristante.
Cornelius replaces Petagna, who's been brilliant tonight.
- OffAndrea MasielloAtalanta
- OnMattia CaldaraAtalanta
And no risks to be taken with Masiello.
- OffDominic Calvert-LewinEverton
- OnKevin MirallasEverton
Mirallas replaces Calvert-Lewin.
Besic has something which I suppose could be termed a shot, but it's wildly off target from range.
Sigurdsson cuts in and has a shot which deflects off Palomino for a corner.
Jagielka is shouting at everyone else to move so he has some people to pass to.
He's OK to continue for the time being.
Masiello has hurt his knee - he ran into one of his own players as well as the challenge of Calvert-Lewin. There's a pause in play.
Both former Manchester United players going off there before their weekend encounter with their former club.
- OffMorgan SchneiderlinEverton
- OnSandro RamírezEverton
And Schneiderlin is replaced by Sandro Ramirez.
Wayne Rooney is off, replaced by Klaassen.
Berisha makes a spectacular punch as Sigurdsson whips in a looping free kick, but Palomino is there to get it away.
That's just desperation, really.
- Yellow cardGylfi SigurdssonEverton
Sigurdsson takes Cristante down, and gets booked.
The contrast between Atalanta's passing and Everton's is almost hilarious.
Whistling from the Atalanta fans as Vlasic tries to create something down the left.
Petagna powers through from the right, picking up another loose ball, and he sends it to his left, where Gomez is waiting. His shot is high over the bar.
Good work from Besic, harrying Petagna after an excellently-weighted long ball forward from Gomez.
Lovely shot from Petagna, left-footed rocket, forcing Stekelenburg into another good low save.
Atalanta are stroking the ball about from the back, much like Everton tried to do in the first half, except much more successfully.
Holgate upends Freuler for no reason other than that he can.
There we go, Everton manage a shot on target, saved by the legs of Berisha.
After a shambolic first half, Everton kick off the second courtesy of Wayne Rooney.
HALF-TIME. No additional time as Everton scurry off after a terrible first half for them.
GOAL! And that's a third from Cristante - so much space as Atalanta pour forward. Gomez was unmarked on the far side, Cristante was in the middle, and he nurdled it home.
Admittedly there was nobody near him looking to close him down, but nonetheless that was lovely.
- GoalAlejandro GómezAtalanta
GOAL! Oh, what a brilliant strike by Gomez, who's Atalanta's key man. He's on the edge of the box, takes a couple of steps in, and lets loose with his right foot.
Besic has just whacked an attempted pass into touch.
Atalanta look really bright, especially since the goal. Rooney gives away a free kick after fouling Toloi on the right wing.
And another chance for Masiello, but Stekelenburg denies him at point-blank range. It's total football here, with centre-halves up front and centre-forwards at full-back
Baines gets his boot in the way this time as Gomez's pass is misplaced.
Hateboer zips the ball across the box, and Atalanta make muted appeals for a handball, possibly.
Everton are putting so many men behind the ball but none of them are getting anywhere near it.
Wayne Rooney is basically playing at left back.
Everton look to regroup, but they can't keep possession.
Palomino gallops (sorry) through the middle, and Schneiderlin makes a well-timed interception.
The volume ramps up in the stadium now.
- GoalAndrea MasielloAtalanta
GOAL! He scores this time, though, nipping in at the far post as the ball bobbles through the box and nudging it into the net.
Great save from Stekelenburg as Masiello, the centre half, thinks he's given his side the lead. Corner.
Optimistic long balls back from the Everton defence, which Atalanta don't anticipate or intercept.
Gomez is at the centre of everything for Atalanta as well, but then as he takes all the set pieces that isn't so much of a surprise.
Another great block by Rooney there. Such impressive work from him so far.
Rooney is absolutely everywhere on this pitch.
Slight hold-up in play as everyone waits for Gomez to take this next set piece, which comes to nothing.
Firm challenge from Holgate on Gomez in the box - another Atalanta corner.
Holgate sends in a low, bobbling ball from the right, and Berisha scurries out to throw himself on it.
And then Wayne Rooney follows that up with a chip, which flies just wide of the post.
Chance! A snapshot from Sigurdsson, beaten away by Berisha.
Nothing doing from that.
Morgan Schneiderlin absolutely flies in on a challenge, and is fortunate not to be booked. Free kick to Atalanta in the centre circle area.
And as Everton keep the ball for a few minutes, the Atalanta fans begin to whistle.
Everton look to be a little tentative in their attacking play at the moment, working out where exactly everyone should be as they try to string some passes together.
Really noisy in the ground - plenty of singing and chanting.
Everton are looking to slow the pace down a little and get more of a foothold after that bright start from Atalanta.
It's Rooney on his defensive duties who gets it away, and Everton look to counter.
Another Atalanta corner, bouncing off Keane.
The offside flag is up, though, and Everton have the free kick.
Atalanta are on the attack - Jagielka tries to get his head in the way and Stekelenburg throws his fists towards the ball. It's an early corner.
Atalanta are in blue and black, Everton are in white.
And Atalanta kick us off amidst clouds of smoke.
The teams are out on the pitch and lining up for the handshakes.
Koeman talks about making six changes from his last Premier League line-up, saying he wasn't happy with everything from that match and also it's a tough time in the fixture list.
Ronald Koeman: "I play football to win the game, and to win the game you need to attack. You need to create opportunities to score. It's always our way of playing."
