    • KICK OFF
    • 90'
      It really has been a remarkable comeback from West Ham, though the turning point from Everton’s point of view was, quite clearly, that penalty miss by Lukaku.
    • 45'
      There will be three minutes of added time at the end of the first half, and West Ham are - as you would expect - seeing all of the possession, but that have as of yet being unable to breakthrough Everton’s congested defence…
    • 90'
      A booking now for Ross Barkley, who fouled Alex Song.
    • 45'
      HIGH AND WIDE! Payet has become somewhat of a set-piece specialist for West Ham this term, but that one was certainly not one of his best, as his strike sails way over the crossbar.
    • 90'
      Yellow card Diafra Sakho
    • 0'
      Well, that’s all we have time for from Goodison Park today, where it has finished Everton 2-3 West Ham. Until next time, thank you and goodbye!
    • 0'
      That defeat sees Everton remain in 11th, though they could move as low as 13th by the close of the weekend. As for the Hammers, they rise into fifth place, and remain just a point behind Manchester City in the hunt for Champions League qualification.
    • 0'
      Well, it is such a blow for Everton and the already under-pressure Roberto Martinez. He had seen his side - depleted due to the first-half dismissal of Kevin Mirallas - take a two goal lead before Romelu Lukaku missed tow golden chances, one of them from the spot, to put the result beyond all doubt.
    • 0'
      FULL TIME! That’s it, it’s all over at Goodison Park, where 10-man Everton have let slip a two goal lead and Dimitri Payet has complete a remarkable comeback to seal a 3-2 victory for West Ham.
    • 0'
      There is definitely a lot of work to do in the second half for both these sides. Martinez, despite being down to ten men, will be happy with the overall performance of his side, while West Ham have so far failed to play with the pace and precision that has made them so dangerous this season.
    • 0'
      Both teams could well have been awarded penalties in the opening 45 minutes as well. First, John Stones was clearly fouled by Reece Oxford at an Everton corner before, at the other end, Ramiro Funes-Mori appeared to have tugged back Angelo Ogbonna as the West Ham defender attempted to get on the end
    • 0'
      HALF-TIME! The first half ends with a chorus of boos from the Goodison faithful, directed squarely at the official. Mirallas’ second booking was a definite yellow, though Cresswell did definitely not help his opponent’s case by staying down for longer than seemed necessary. However, it is the Toffee

      We’re just moments away from kick-off now, as the teams walk out from the tunnel in front of what is a near full house at Goodison. The referee of this afternoon’s fixture will be Anthony Taylor.
    • 0'
      The visitors come into this game in high spirits, having won their last two top-flight matches, though they do have a rather ramshackle three-man defence that includes the 17-year-old Oxford and Kouayte, typically a midfielder, filling in at right centre-back in the absence of the suspended Sam Byra
    • 0'
      So, a different approach then from Martinez, switching to a formation he used quite often in his days at Wigan for what is Everton’s first game at Goodison since they news that former Arsenal shareholder Farhad Mashiri would buy a 49.9% stake in the club, along with the promise of a higher-level of

      The team sheets are in from Goodison, and there’s certainly some interesting news for Everton fans as Martinez attempts to amend their poor home form with a quite radical change. John Stones - who made his return to a action as a second-half substitute against Aston Villa following a spell out with
    • 0'
      On the other hand, the Hammers have been in superb form as of late, with the fantastic, hard-fought win over Tottenham put them into a fantastic position to mount a serious charge on the top four in the final ten games of the campaign. Like their hosts, they have lost just twice since in the league
    • 0'
      After a tricky spell of form in the run around the festive period, the Toffees have turned it around somewhat since the turn of the year. Since their League Cup semi-final loss to Manchester City at the Etihad towards the end of January, Martinez has guided his side to five victories from six games

      Hello and welcome to this LIVE coverage of the Premier League clash between Everton and West Ham! We’ll be bringing you all the action from Merseyside where, following mid-week wins over Aston Vila and high-flying Tottenham, it really is a huge game for both these teams. A victory for Roberto Martin
    • 1'
      KICK-OFF! We are up and running here at Goodison, with West Ham, attacking from left to right in the first half, getting proceedings under way.
    • 3'
      A promising start from West Ham, as they thread a neat move forward through the centre of Everton’s midfield. Lanzini eventually works it wide towards Creswell, but he is stewarded out of play by Coleman.
    • 5'
      CLOSE! A good move by the hosts, as Barkley drills a long pass forward towards Lukaku. The Belgian chases it down, but Adrian comes out quickly to smother the danger.
    • 6'
      GREAT SAVE! Everton win a corner that Barkley delivers from the right. The half-clearance falls to McCarthy on the edge of the West Ham area, and the Republic of Ireland international tries his luck with a venomous half-volley that forces Adrian into making an instinctive stop.
    • 7'
      Appeals for a penalty now from Everton, as Stones claims he had been tugged back by Oxford in the area from the resulting set-piece, and it does appear that he was. The former Barnsley defender was clearly incensed, but Anthony Taylor was having none of it.
    • 9'
      It’s been a bright start from the hosts, who seem to have thrown West Ham slightly with this change in formation. The visitors eventually manage to get their star man Payet on the ball, and the ex-Marseille man jinks inside before attempting to pick out Emenike with an ambitious throughball, but Rob
    • 11'
      SO CLOSE! Poor defending from Everton invites Payet to drive forward from midfield and power a low effort at goal. It looks set to nestle in the bottom-left corner, but it ends up whistling just wide of the upright.
    • 13'
      G R. Lukaku Assist B. Oviedo
    • 13'
      It was a patient and incisive move by Everton, capped off by a great throughball by Bryan Oviedo, with Lukaku duly doing the rest.
    • 13'
      GOOOOOAAAALLLLL!!! What a finish by Lukaku! The Belgian forward continues his amazing run of form against West Ham as he latches onto a precise pass by Oviedo - spinning Oxford in the area before drilling a low left-footed strike in off the far post. Everton 1-0 West Ham!
    • 16'
      A yellow card now for Mirallas, who went down under pressure from Kouyate. It did appear that the Belgian winger had been clipped by the West Ham midfielder, but Mr. Taylor decided that it was simulation.
    • 18'
      A free-kick now for West Ham as McCarthy could Emenike in a central position 30 yards from Everton’s goal. Payet drifts in the cross, which is flicked on by Ogbonna, but his header sails harmlessly to Robles.
    • 19'
      More appeals for a penalty now from the hosts, as Lennon’s cross appears to strike the arm of Ogbonna. A spot-kick would have been a harsh decision, however, and the winger should have perhaps tried to get his cross in a fraction earlier in order to get it around the first man.
    • 20'
      A sloppy pass from Stones allows West Ham to capitalise and maintain a short spell of pressure on Everton’s goal. They eventually work it out to Noble on the cusp of the Everton penalty area, but the Hammers’ skipper’s resulting first-time strike shanks well wide and trickles out for a throw-in.
    • 21'
      CLOSE! Everton again concede possession deep in their own half, and the visitors pounce swiftly. It is worked out wide to Cresswell, who flashes a superb cross across the face of goal, but Emenike is unable to latch onto it for what would have been a tap-in.
    • 23'
      Finally, the hosts get it cleared quickly and Mirallas latches onto the loose ball. He attempts to get past Kouayte, who makes the interception but Oviedo is on hand to keep Everton’s momentum going. The full-back again drives a pass into Lukaku, whose strike is deflected wide for a corner, but noth
    • 25'
      STUNNING SAVE! That’s another fantastic stop from Adrian, who reacts brilliantly to prevent Barkley’s rasping strike going in at the near post. It was a great effort by the England midfielder!
    • 28'
      Good, strong and committed defending from Mirallas as he slides in on Antonio. The in-form West Ham man delivers the resulting throw-in into the area, but Robles comes out bravely and confidently to punch it clear.
    • 29'
      Great play from West Ham as Cresswell combines with Lanzini down the left, and the Argentine is duly fouled deep in Everton’s territory by Coleman. Payet delivers the free-kick, which pinball’s around in the Everton area before it is deflected out for a corner.
    • 30'
      Appeals for a penalty now from West Ham, but again there is nothing doing for the referee. Payet delivered a precise corner to the back post which caught Funes-Mori out. Ogbonna got to the ball first, but under pressure from the Argentine - who did look to nudge the former Juventus man in the back -
    • 33'
      West Ham are seeing pretty much all of the ball at the moment, with Everton struggling to get out of their own half. Mirallas eventually does well to regain possession down on the left, linking around Lanzini and forcing the visitors’ midfielder into conceding a throw-in.
    • 34'
      RED CARD! Mirallas is sent off! That is a real blow for Everton, as the Belgian - who was really unlucky to get a booking for simulation earlier in this game - is given his marching orders for a late challenge on Cresswell. That does seem an incredibly harsh decision by Taylor, but the hosts will no
    • 37'
      The temperature is really beginning to rise now at Goodison, and you have to say it is all down to that decision by the referee to send Mirallas off. Barkley is dragged back cynically by Emenike, and the West Ham forward duly goes into the book.
    • 39'
      From a defensive stand-point, at least, that sending off doesn’t change too much for the hosts - who were already sitting deep with two banks of five and four respectively. However, they will have to be much more wary of West Ham’s treat and ability to overload the right flank in the absence of Mira
    • 41'
      The hosts seemed to have being sparked back into life following that dismissal, though West Ham do manager to forge an opportunity down the right. Emineke drops in a cross that Robles collects, before being clattered into by Antonio. It certainly looked like a yellow card, but the referee lets it go
    • 43'
      GREAT SAVE! Cresswell drills in another terrific cross that Emenike gets on the end of on this occasion with a first-time flick towards goal, but Robles somehow reacts to prevent the ball going over the line. That was a fantastic stop!
    • 44'
      Everton have returned to a more familiar back four since they went down to ten men, with Lennon coming across to the left side of midfield and Coleman pushing up to the right wing. Again, they manage to carve out some space down the left flank, but Lukaku’s touch is a poor one and the move breaks do
    • 45'
      That’s a silly tackle by Jagielka, who gives West Ham the perfect opportunity to level as he concedes a free-kick right on the edge of the area. Cresswell and Payet stand over it...
    • 46'
      SI M. Bešić SO B. Oviedo
    • 46'
      SI A. Carroll SO B. Oviedo
    • 46'
      And, for Everton, Muhamed Besic - who has missed seven games through injury - replaces John Stones, which will add some steal and grit to Everton’s diminished midfield.
    • 46'
      The second half is under way at Goodison, with both sides making changes. For West Ham, Andy Carroll replaces Reece Oxford.
    • 47'
      It’s been a positive start to the second half by the hosts, as Lukaku manages to get on the ball and turn towards goal, bursting forward at pace from midfield. He attempts to take on Kouyate, but his strike deflects harmlessly into the arms of Adrian.
    • 49'
      Top defending from Jagielka, who does excellently to prevent another brilliant delivery from Cresswell finding Emenike in the six-yard box. Everton manage to clear the resulting corner, but only as far as Lanzini, who wins a soft free-kick after being bundled into by Besic.
    • 50'
      JUST WIDE! Payet drops in a superb cross from the resulting set-piece, which is met on the rise by Antonio, but the former Nottingham Forest winger - who scored with a header against Tottenham last time out - can only direct his effort off target.
    • 51'
      Good pressure from Everton high up the pitch, as Besic gets on the ball and pulls the strings in West Ham’s half. He eventually slides a pass out to Oviedo, who drills an effort goalwards from range, which Kouyate can only deflect wide.
    • 53'
      A patient move from West Ham as they work it down the right, with Noble skipping past Barkley before laying it off to Antonio. He attempts to float a cross to the back post, but he gets it horribly wrong and it sails out of play for a goal kick to the hosts.
    • 55'
      Almost an opening for Everton! Coleman gets down the right at pace and drinks a cross towards Barkley on the edge of the area. The England midfielder looks set to hit it on the volley, but the ball drops just too short and he can only bundle it out thanks to what appeared to be a deflection off Anto
    • 56'
      G A. Lennon Assist B. Oviedo
    • 56'
      It was another superb move from the hosts, as Lennon and Lukaku combined with perfection to carve open West Ham's defence.
    • 56'
      GOOOAAAAAAALLLLLL!!! WHAT A BRILLIANT GOAL BY EVERTON! They tore the visitors apart there with some superb interplay! Lennon, who has been given a free role in the second half, jinks inside and links up expertly with Lukaku, getting on the end of the Belgian’s return pass before coolly slotting home
    • 59'
      This really is a crucial period now for both of these sides. For Everton, it is a case of continuing what they have been doing so far in the second half, while for the visitors they have to change their tactics if they are to get a foothold in this game. And they look to be doing just that as Bilic
    • 61'
      SI A. Song SO B. Oviedo
    • 61'
      SI D. Sakho SO B. Oviedo
    • 61'
      The second substitution sees Pedro Obiang make way for Alexandre Song, who made his Premier League debut - for Arsenal - against the Toffees.
    • 61'
      And those changes will now take place, the first of which sees Emmanuel Emenike replaced by Diafra Sakho.
    • 62'
      A chance for West Ham, as they lump a cross into the area towards the head of Carroll. The ex-Liverpool striker rises high to meet it, but fouls Jagielka in the process.
    • 64'
      Slack play from Lukaku allows West Ham to break down the left, with Lanzini doing well to win a corner off Oviedo. Payet delivers it, but again it is poor and Everton are able to smother the danger.
    • 66'
      STAT FLASH - West Ham, who have never before accumulated this many points at this stage in a Premier League campaign - have won just three of their 39 Premier League away trips to Merseyside (at Liverpool/Everton); losing 26 and drawing 10.
    • 67'
      Smart defending from Funes-Mori, as he gets across on the cover to ensure that Sakho is unable to get on the end of a throughball from deep.
    • 68'
      PENALTY TO EVERTON!!! Besic displays some excellent footwork to link his way around three West Ham defenders and drive towards the area. He is scythed down by Song, and Anthony Taylor duly awards the spot-kick.
    • 69'
      Penalty Miss Romelu Menama Lukaku
    • 69'
      Penalty Save Adrián San Miguel del Castillo
    • 69'
      MISSED! That’s a really poor spot-kick by Lukaku who, with the opportunity to wrap up the victory, can only direct a team effort at Adrian.
    • 72'
      CHANCE!!! Lukaku should have scored! Barkley feeds the striker with a fantastic throughball. The former Chelsea man bursts free of his markers, but he can only slide his attempted finish into Adrian, who makes an instinctive save.
    • 74'
      West Ham win another corner down on the right, which Payet again lifts into the area. McCarthy gets to it first with a great header before being clattered into heavily by Carroll.
    • 75'
      A booking now for Joel Robles, who picks up a yellow card for descent.
    • 76'
      SI O. Niasse SO B. Oviedo
    • 76'
      A change now for Everton, as Oumar Niasse is introduced in place of Aaron Lennon, who has been super this afternoon. It is a second Premier League appearance for the former CSKA forward, who makes his first appearance at Goodison.
    • 78'
      G M. Antonio Assist B. Oviedo
    • 78'
      It was a great cross by Mark Noble, who put it on a plate for Antonio. Will Everton live to regret that penalty miss?
    • 78'
      GOOOOOOAAAAALLLL!!! A lifeline for West Ham, then, as Noble drifts in a dangerous ball that is headed home powerfully by Antonio! Everton 2-1 West Ham.
    • 78'
      Claims for handball from Payet, whose volley strikes the arm of Besic, but there is nothing doing for the referee.
    • 80'
      A booking now for Angelo Ogbonna after he cynically pulls back Lukaku.
    • 81'
      G D. Sakho Assist B. Oviedo
    • 81'
      Dimitri Payet's have been unusually poor today, but he put in a superb cross when it counted that Sakho duly got on the end of. What a turning point that penalty miss from Lukaku has proved to be!
    • 81'
      GOOOOOAAAAALLLLL!!!! WEST HAM ARE LEVEL!!! Well, Everton have defended excellently so far this afternoon, but they have been exposed here as Payet delivers another pinpoint cross that Sakho heads home into the bottom-left corner.
    • 84'
      Huge appeals for a penalty once more by Everton, as Besic’s strike hits Ogbonna in the area, but once more the referee waves away the claims.
    • 85'
      Wasteful! Barkley does brilliantly to drive away from danger and lay off a great pass into the path of Lukaku, but the Belgium forward’s heavy first touch is a costly one and the move breaks down.
    • 86'
      SO CLOSE! That’s top defending from Cresswell, who gets across to beat Coleman to a superb cross into the area from Oviedo.
    • 89'
      SI G. Barry SO B. Oviedo
    • 89'
      A final change now for Everton, as Gareth Barry - who missed out on a starting berth due to a chest infection - replaces Romelu Lukaku as the hosts look to see this game out.
    • 89'
      Everton are really pressing here, but West Ham are looking deadly on the counter as Noble picks out Payet. The France playmaker takes a perfect first touch to jink inside, but Jagielka gets across to make a superb covering tackle.
    • 90'
      G D. Payet Assist B. Oviedo
    • 90'
      It was nothing more than a hopeful punt into the area from Diafra Sakho, who won the initial knock-down and Payet duly applied the finish.
    • 90'
      GOOOOAAALLLLLLL!!! WEST HAM HAVE WON THE GAME IN STOPPAGE TIME!! What a turn-around from the visits, as Payet gets on the end of a knock-down to slot a finish under Robles.
