The Toffees striker took two penalties – the first of which he missed only to see team-mate Dominic Calvert-Lewin convert the rebound, the second he put past Swans keeper Lukas Fabianski.
But between those incidents, he provided the assist for Gylfi Sigurdsson’s wonderful long-range goal.
It saw the ex-Manchester United player move to a total of 103 assists in the Premier League – one more than Chelsea legend Frank Lampard.
Only Cesc Fabregas (110) and Ryan Giggs (162) are ahead of him in the all-time records.

He was taken off against Swansea on Monday night to a standing ovation from the Everton fans.
