MATCH HIGHLIGHTS: EVERTON 4-0 HULL
EVERTON 4-0 HULL
That's it. Everton with an emphatic win in the end against 10-men Hull as they go into the top six. Hull remain in the drop zone.
GOAL! EVERTON 4-0 HULL (Lukaku 90+4)
Lukaku has another! Rounds the goalkeeper and scores with his right foot after latching onto a poor back pass by Elabdellaoui.
GOAL! EVERTON 3-0 HULL (90+1)
And there it is. Lukaku gets his goal. Nice ball through by Valencia as he repays the favour and the finish is clinical.
EVERTON 2-0 HULL
89: Robertson unhappy not to win a free-kick and the referee calls over Maguire to discuss it. Bit of drama but in terms of the results this one is fizzling out a little. Lukaku still looking for that goal though.
86: Elmohamady on for Markovic.
86: Barkley does well to shrug off a challenge and feeds Barry inside the box. The ball is slightly behind him and his shot is just over the bar.
83: Hull with a couple of corners but surely it is too late for them now. Everton clear well anyway.
82: Diomande is on for Hernandez.
79: Barry booked.
GOAL! EVERTON 2-0
HULL (Valencia 78)
Valencia with the left-footed finish from close range after being put through brilliantly by Lukaku.
77: Valencia is on to replace Davies.
Hull are down to 10 men and have been pushed out to 150/1 with Sky Bet as Huddlestone heads down the tunnel. Everton are trading at 1/16 and a draw is 10/1 while Romelu Lukaku is 9/2 favourite to score the game's next goal. Get all the in-play odds here.
76: The visitors attempt to work it short but lose possession.
75: It certainly makes Hull's task trickier. They have a corner now though.
73: Danny Higginbotham on co-commentary feels that was a harsh call and should have been a booking.
73: RED CARD! Tom Huddlestone has been sent off for an over-the-top challenge on Gueye.
72: Chance! Right-wing cross finds Robertson at the far post and he attempts a side-foot volley. The connection isn't great and hits the side-netting.
69: Much more open game now although it is not immediately obvious which team that favours. Grosicki gets away down the left but overhits the cross.
67: Lukaku wins the header from the corner but it is easy for Jakupovic to deal with.
66: Strong but fair challenge on Barkley by Maguire that the fans don't enjoy and then Coleman wins a corner.
64: Grosicki is on for Davies. Silva has responded to Koeman's attempt to match up but switching his own system.
63: Williams is booked for a cynical block on Markovic.
61: Another good break by Everton and again Lukaku cuts inside onto his stronger left foot and blasts a shot on goal that is well saved by Jakupovic.
58: Chance for Funes Mori immediately but he shoots just wide. Then Barkley produces a driving run into the box but Maguire comes up with the tackle just as the Everton man shaped to shoot.
56: Funes Mori is on for Calvert-Lewin. Tactical substitution by Koeman as he switches to three at the back. It's an acknowledgement of how Hull have come back into this game.
55: Everton's turn to break as Barkley puts Lukaku away. The striker cuts inside and ignores Calvert-Lewin outside him, opting instead to fire off a shot from 20 yards but it is just over the bar.
54: It is a waste in the end as Robertson curls the corner out of play.
52: Hull really starting to frustrate Everton a bit. The away side are getting a few more bodies forward too. No clear chances yet this half but Hull have a corner.
EVERTON 1-0 HULL
50: Bit quieter at Goodison Park as Hull enjoy a good spell of possession. It comes to nothing though as Robles deals with a high ball into the box.
48: Good tackle by Gueye brings a Hull attack to an end. He has been vital in the middle of the pitch.
46: Everton kick off and the second half is underway.
SOCCER SATURDAY PRICE BOOST
Things were looking rosy for the Soccer Saturday Price Boost when Everton, Leicester and Chelsea all went ahead early on. But Stoke have pegged the Premier League leaders back to 1-1 and the current in-play price is now 15/8.
Place your bets here...
Half time: Hull finished it with a brief flurry but Everton deservedly lead at the break thanks to Calvert-Lewin's early goal.
44:More sloppiness from Everton at the back as Barry attempts a dribble on the edge of his own box but he gets away with being dispossessed as a subsequent 50-50 challenge goes out for a goal-kick.
43: Davies' turn to play Barkley in now but it is a touch too strong and Everton settle for a corner that Huddlestone clears.
41: It's an inviting ball in from Baines but Lukaku cannot quite get on the end of it.
40: Davies plays a nice one-two with Barry and then drives at the defence. He wins a free-kick in a dangerous position that Baines will take.
39: Everton having the better of it but that's a reminder that the lead is a precarious one at the moment. Hull still a threat on the break.
37: Chance! Everton make a mess of things at the back as Williams' header to Robles is not strong enough. Clucas nips in but his attempt to lob the goalkeeper fails as he lofts the ball over the bar.
34: Corner at the other end following Markovic's surging run. Pinball in the box but Davies is able to clear in the end.
33: Everton work a short corner well and Barry eventually lofts a ball to the back post but Williams' looping header is easy for Jakupovic.
30: Substitution as Schneiderlin is shaking his head and has had to go off injured. Barry is on to replace him.
28: Delay as Schneiderlin requires treatment. He is on the deck which will be a concern for Everton.
27: Bit of a lull in proceedings here. Everton still with the ball and probing for another opening.
24: Lukaku puts the ball into the net after Gueye slides a pass through the centre but he is just offside.
22: Everton are looking so dominant but for the occasional Hull break. They are camped inside the opposition half and there are some nice interchanges. Calvert-Lewin just fails to properly connect with a right-wing cross. That was almost his second!
19: Good break by Hull but Hernandez takes the wrong option by trying to beat Jagielka and the defender does well. Calvert-Lewin then wins a free-kick for a foul by Ranocchia at the other end. Baines overhits the free-kick and the chance is gone.
18: Calvert-Lewin wins a free-kick. He is causing problems for the Hull defence by drifting inside. Gets more applause now by spinning away from Elabdellaoui.
15: Lukaku with the left-footed shot from inside the box but it is blocked by Ranocchia.
