EVERTON 3-0 WEST BROM
FT: All over at Goodison Park and Everton have comfortably seen off their nearest rivals for seventh place.
Romelu Lukaku had a hand in both goals before half-time before sealing the victory with a header eight minutes from time.
That's his 19th Premier League goal of the season and puts him level with Harry Kane in the race for the Golden Boot. It also marks his best return in a Premier League season.
90+1: POST! Everton work another short corner, this time to Gueye. He turns away from Morrison on the edge of the area and is unlucky as his low drive comes off the outside of the post.
90: TWO minutes of added time...
88: YELLOW! Dawson clotheslines Calvert-Lewin with a heavy challenge and the West Brom defender is in the book.
87: NO PENALTY! Barkley wants a spot-kick after his shot from distance strikes McAuley on the arm. It was outside the box anway and would have been harsh on the West Brom defender. Davies' follow-up volley is then blocked.
EVERTON 3-0 WEST BROM
84: SUB! Gareth Barry, who just picked up a yellow card, is replaced by Dominic Calvert-Lewin, making his return from an ankle injury.
GOAL! EVERTON 3-0 WEST BROM (Lukaku, 82)
That should be game over! Barkley does very well on the left to lift a cross into the six-yard box. Lukaku drifts away from Nyom and gives Foster no chance with his header.
EVERTON 2-0 WEST BROM
81: YELLOW! Barry hauls back Rondon on the counter and it's an easy decision for referee Graham Scott.
80: SUB! We'll see James Morrison after all. He comes on for Claudio Yacob. That's an attacking change and West Brom's final substitution of the match.
78: Here's another look at Everton's opening goal, scored by Kevin Mirallas...
76: SUB! Pulis makes his second change almost immediately, bringing on Salomon Rondon for Hal Robson-Kanu.
75: SUB! West Brom's first of the game as Chris Brunt replaces James McClean. James Morrison has sat back down, it doesn't look like he'll be coming on anytime soon.
74: BLOCKED! Lukaku takes instead of Barkley but it's a tame effort, striking Dawson in the wall and bouncing away from danger.
73: YELLOW! Yacob gets caught the wrong side of Lukaku as the ball is played over the top and Everton win a free-kick in a very promising position, about 22 yards from goal in a central area...
72: Jonny Evans received quite a bit of treatment during that Everton substitution. He trudges off to continue that as we get back under way. It's not clear when he picked up a problem.
70: SUB! Here comes a change but it's a second from Everton and not one for West Brom. Idrissa Gueye replaces Everton's first goalscorer, Kevin Mirallas.
Davies comes across for a long chat with Ronald Koeman.
68: Everton are looking pretty comfortable at the moment. West Brom have offered very little in attack, which is not a surprise considering Livermore, Fletcher and Yacob are all defensive-minded central midfielders.
Robson-Kanu is looking very frustrated up front for the Baggies.
66: Well it looked like Pulis was about to bring on Chris Brunt and James Morrison but the pair of substitutes have just put their jumpers back on after getting ready to go.
64: Fletcher is a little fortunate to win a free-kick after coming under intense pressure on the edge of his own penalty area. Tony Pulis is still barking instructions out to his team and it looks like he's about to make a change. It's not Rondon, though...
Little threat from the Baggies as they attempt to get back in the game and they are 150/1 with Sky Bet for an unlikely three points. Romelu Lukaku is 9/2 to score the next goal with a 3-0 final scoreline on offer at 3/1. Get all the in-play odds here.
60: Barry does very well again to halt a potential West Brom counter, stepping in front of Robson-Kanu to nip an attack in the bud. Barry and Schneiderlin have been impressive.
61: CHANCE! Barkley twists and turns inside the box after collecting a cross from Mirallas. He gets away from McAuley but blasts his effort into the side netting.
58: Robson-Kanu wins a free-kick for West Brom midway inside the Everton half. It's been tough going for the Baggies forward so far - surely it's only a matter of time before we see Rondon...
56: There was an Evertonion special guest on the pitch at half-time...
53: Coleman then concedes a corner, which is taken by Chadli. It's cleared out to Livermore and his pass sells Yacob short. The West Brom midfielder is penalised for a high foot. Poor from Livermore.
52: CHANCE! Robles denies Chadli from point-blank range. That's the best opportunity of the game for West Brom so far.
50: Brilliant play by Lukaku on the left flank as he beats Dawson far too easily with a couple of stepovers. His cross is a very good one too but there's no team-mate anticipating at the back post. Lukaku needed to be in two places at once there.
49: Everton go on the front foot as Davies steals in down the left but the move breaks down when it's worked out to the right. Funes Mori has tucked into Baines' left-back spot.
46: SUB! A change for Everton at the break as Leighton Baines is replaced by Ramiro Funes Mori. No sign of an injury before the break for the left-back.
We're back under way for the second half...
HT BET UPDATE
The Toffees well on top at home again and are just 1/33 for victory with Sky Bet. The visitors can be backed at 100/1 for an unlikely three points with the draw 22/1. A 4-0 final scoreline to the hosts is 9/1 - get all the in-play odds here.
HT: Two goals in six minutes before half-time puts Everton in control over West Brom.
Romelu Lukaku has played a key part in both, with Kevin Mirallas and Morgan Schneiderlin on the score-sheet.
Tony Pulis will be disappointed. His side looked solid until falling behind but now have plenty of work to do.
45: TWO minutes of added time by the way...
GOAL! EVERTON 2-0 WEST BROM (Schneiderlin, 45+1)
Everton have a second before the break and that could be crucial! Lukaku plays a central role again, holding off the challenge of Evans and playing a lovely pass into the path of Schneiderlin.
The Frenchman, breaking into the box, holds off Livermore and lifts his finish over Foster. Nicely done.
EVERTON 1-0 WEST BROM
43: A little untidy from Dawson as he takes out Davies and Everton have a free-kick towards the West Brom corner flag. Mirallas takes but it clips the wall. Disappointing.
45: McClean then needlessly dives in on Coleman and Everton have a set-piece on the opposite flank.
NO PENALTY! It's worked short by Barkley and he looks for Coleman, who stumbles and eventually hits the deck with Livermore tracking the defender. Livermore was the wrong side but there doesn't look like much contact between the two and it's a goal kick.
42: West Brom go in search of an immediate reply as Chadli slips Livermore into the Everton box from the left channel. The holding midfielder never looks convincing with his shot, though, dragging it badly wide on his left foot.
GOAL! EVERTON 1-0 WEST BROM (Mirallas, 39)
Everton make the breakthrough! Lukaku starts the move on the right flank and his pass inside fortuitously finds Barkley in space 14 yards out.
The England attacker's low shot is saved by Foster but the ball spills out to Mirallas, who sticks it home from close range.
EVERTON 0-0 WEST BROM
38: SAVE! Robles tips a low, bobbling effort by Chadli wide and it's another West Brom corner. Barkley clears at the near post.
37: SHOT! Barkley curls a long-range strike a few yards over Foster's bar. West Brom will be very happy with shots from that distance. They are packing the midfield and making it so difficult for Everton to pass their way through, with Livermore, Fletcher and Yacob offering good cover for McAuley and Evans.
36: McClean bursts away from Coleman down the left and puts in a whipped cross for Robson-Kanu. Excellent defending by Williams takes it off the head of his Wales team-mate. West Brom have enjoyed a little spell over the last five minutes or so.
34: West Brom's turn to win a corner as Robles flaps at a cross from the left. The visitors put it into the mixer through Chadli but Lukaku clears at the near post.
The ball is worked down the left channel again into Chadli in space but this time Barry heads away. Two poor deliveries by the former Spurs attacker.
33: Everton are starting to get a bit more creative as they look to break down a stubborn West Brom defence. Barkley scoops a pass into the path of Lukaku, whose flick looks for Davies, but it's slightly behind the youngster. That would have been some move.
31: Everton win another corner, this time down the right through Coleman, and it's taken short again. It eventually comes to Barkley 20 yards out but it's all too slow and his left-foot effort is straight at Foster.
The short corner is clearly something Everton have worked on, but it's not paying off at the moment.
29: Davies gets space down the left for the first time this afternoon after a neat flick by Lukaku. The young midfielder wins a corner, which is taken short to Baines.
CHANCE! His delivery is excellent, right onto the head of Lukaku, but the Belgian nods wide from six yards under pressure from Evans. Another chance for Lukaku.
28: Very smart defending by Barry. West Brom are growing into this game now and McClean pops the ball into Robson-Kanu in the Everton area. His lovely lay-off nearly gets Chadli in on goal but Barry gets back to cover and see it through to Robles.
25: NO PENALTY! Everton make a mess of clearing a ball into their penalty area and Robson-Kanu goes down under the challenge of Williams from behind. It would have been very soft and referee Graham Scott is not interested. That wasn't very convincing at the back from the home side, though.
24: West Brom will be pretty pleased with how this game has gone as we pass the midpoint of the first half. They look very solid defensively, allowing just that one opportunity to Lukaku so far.
21: It gets a bit scrappy in the West Brom area after Baines drives a low cross into the box. Mirallas tries to get his shot away before it falls to Davies, with his effort also blocked.
19: West Brom put together their best sustained attack as Chadli twists and turns and finds Dawson on the right. He stands up a cross for Fletcher at the back post but the Scot's looping header is comfortable for Robles.
