The defeat leaves Ralf Rangnick's team languishing in seventh place, three points adrift of fourth-placed Tottenham.
Rangnick's side have now dropped league points in four of their last five matches, having drawn at home to Watford and Leicester City while losing to cross-town rivals Manchester City last month.
As for Everton, they remain one spot above the relegation zone, but the massive win sees them open up a four-point gap over 18th-placed Burnley.
