Match Summary Reid’s returns with a triple as Toffees come unstuck. Froggatt starts it with a fierce shot, then Reid’s pile-driver free-kick leaves Sagar helpless. Everton deserve more, but Pompey are majestic. It’s the best league win since 1924 and the last three against Everton have a 16-0 aggregate!
