Jo volleys in Everton's second as the Brazilian impresses on his debut
Jo marked his Everton debut with two goals to inspire them to a comfortable home victory over Bolton.
Everton dominated from the outset and should have taken the lead after just two minutes, but Tim Cahill sliced wide from inside the six yard box.
Several missed chances followed before Mikel Arteta's coolly taken penalty finally put the home side in front.
Jo volleyed home a second and the Brazilian capped his debut with another from the penalty spot in injury time.
Everton manager David Moyes tried to sign Jo last summer, but could not match Manchester City's bid for the former CSKA Moscow striker.
However, with the Brazilian seemingly frozen out by Mark Hughes at Eastlands, Moyes agreed a loan deal on transfer deadline day and it could prove to be a shrewd piece of business by the Scot.

Jo was at the heart of all Everton's attacking play and, with the ever-impressive defensive pairing of Joleon Lescott and Phil Jagielka denying the visitors at the other end, the home side were always in control.
Such was their dominance, Bolton could have had no complaints if they had been five or six goals down at half-time.
As early as the second minute, Leighton Baines picked up Leon Osman's pass on the overlap to deliver an inviting low ball to Cahill.
However, from just two yards out the Australian midfielder-cum-striker somehow contrived to miss the target when it seemed easier to score.
But that set the tone for the remainder of the half as Bolton seemed content to sit back and soak up constant Everton pressure.
They looked to get behind the visitors' defence at every opportunity, with Osman and Baines combining to great effect down the left.
