Newsflash: Leighton Baines is quite alright at set pieces.

The diminutive, yet prolific fullback, scored on a pair of second-half free kicks on Saturday to help Everton past West Ham United. Each of Baines’ golazos cancelled out leads by the Hammers, ere Romelu Lukaku produced a late winner for the Toffees. After Liverpool’s loss, Everton are now the only Premier League team to remain unbeaten, and they primarily have Baines to thank.
