Gomes hit a hat-trick in the first half via Dominic Calvert-Lewin, while Bernard also came on the score sheet for the Toffees to leave James completely red-faced.
Portuguese midfielder Gomes takes on Manchester City star Raheem Sterling for a place in the semi-finals of the competition.
And to make James ten times worse after his beating, Gomes stated that he’s pretty much a novice to FIFA.
James initially revealed amusingly, “At the beginning of the game he said, ‘I’m okay, I play sometimes’, and then he does this – it doesn’t match.’

And when asked if he was cheating on James, Gomes replied, “Honestly, if we have the regular routine, training with the cub, just preparing for the games, I never play FIFA, ever.
“I only touched the PlayStation about a week ago, so I think I practiced and that’s all.”
The Premier League initially launched the ePremier League competition for the 2018-19 campaign as some of the UK’s top players competed for representing their favorite club.
However, as the league was suspended due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the top English flyer has decided to launch the ePremier League Invitational, with stars from 20 clubs each playing as their own team.

The Premier League stars will compete in a knockout tournament from home, and the final will be shown live on Sky Sports on Saturday, April 25.
Total prize money will then be donated to the # PlayersTogether initiative, which was jointly set up by Premier League players with the aim of “distributing money to where it is most needed” in the fight against the corona virus crisis.
The funds go to those fighting on the front lines of the NHS and other key areas of emergency.
