ALL THE BALL - BUT NO GOALS

This was the highest possession in a Premier League game by a David Moyes side (68.8%) since Man Utd vs Fulham in Feb 2014 (75.4%).


THE TOP FOUR RACE - HOW IT STANDS

WEST HAM 0-1 EVERTON

Sky Sports’ Alan Smith

“West Ham were below par today. They came up against a really determined set up that Carlo Ancelottio put out. It was a hard-fought win, it really was.” 

WEST HAM 0-1 EVERTON 

FT: There goes the final whistle! 

Everton keep their feint Champions League hopes alive with a hard-fought victory in east London! A brilliant defensive display after Calvert-Lewin's strike!

West Ham - who ran out of ideas - certainly aren't out of the running but they can't afford to drop any more points now if they're going to make up the gap above them.

WEST HAM 0-1 EVERTON 

90+4: Fornals launches a long ball forwards looking for Dawson who has joined Diop up front. 

It comes out to Antonio who crosses from the left. Away by Godfrey. 

Antonio crosses again... and then turns away in disgust as he overhits it for a goal-kick.

WEST HAM 0-1 EVERTON

90+2: West Ham have sent Diop forwards to act as a makeshift striker for these final minutes - but Coleman robs Bowen of the ball before he can get a cross in.

WEST HAM 0-1 EVERTON

Sky Sports’ Alan Smith

“It’s been a game of half chances really for West Ham. They haven’t been able to carve out anything meaningful in the main. That was just an ambitious swing of the left boot – and why not.”

WEST HAM 0-1 EVERTON

90+1: Four minutes of added time. Can West Ham come up with one last chance? 

WEST HAM 0-1 EVERTON

90: Into the final minute of the 90 and still West Ham probe. Still they can't see a way through this determined Everton defence... 

SHOT! Coufal tries his luck from range as the ball is half-cleared to him on the edge of the area but he slashes across it with his left foot. 

WEST HAM 0-1 EVERTON

A long throw from Coufal is flicked on by Soucek but Everton make sure they win the second ball and clear.

West Ham come again with a free-kick near the halfway line but Delph does well to reclaim possession. 

WEST HAM 0-1 EVERTON

88: It's excellent defending again from Everton. 

They're pinned right back in their own third but they didn't allow Antonio to turn in the right channel and cross, and when he came round to a more central area later in the move there was no shot or pass on.

WEST HAM 0-1 EVERTON

Sky Sports’ Alan Smith:

“His first touch of the game was really good to set it up and he very nearly finished the move at the far post. It would have settled it.”

WEST HAM 0-1 EVERTON

85: Another Everton change - Delph on for Sigurdsson.

WEST HAM 0-1 EVERTON

84: POST! INSTANT IMPACT FROM KING! 

He's straight into the build-up play and when Calvert-Lewin hooks in a cross after drawing out Fabianski King has a great chance at the back post but his header comes back off the woodwork! 

What an introduction that would have been!

WEST HAM 0-1 EVERTON

83: King is coming on for Richarlison. The Brazilian is less than impressed with coming off!

WEST HAM 0-1 EVERTON

80: OVER! Coufal had ended up on the left and he cuts back on his right to cross for his compatriot Soucek but the midfielder's looping header never threatens Pickford's goal.

WEST HAM 0-1 EVERTON

79: Fredericks wins West Ham a corner. Can they come up with something from this set-piece? 

Holgate and then Keane clear the first and second balls. Everton have really stood up to the physical challenge this afternoon.

WEST HAM 0-1 EVERTON

Sky Sports’ Alan Smith:

“It’s been a game of tackles like that. We’ve had a few players sliding in late.” 

WEST HAM 0-1 EVERTON

77: Allan into the book now after a bad tackle on Bowen.

WEST HAM 0-1 EVERTON

76: CHANCE! Out of nowhere, Everton almost grab a second! 

Calvert-Lewin feeds Coleman, who has made a lung-busting effort to join the counter-attack. He has to hit it first time but he takes a touch and that gives his marker a chance to get back and block his eventual shot.

WEST HAM 0-1 EVERTON

75: Lingard is furious and his protests about a foul being given against him has earned him a yellow card. 

In fairness to the Hammers man there wasn't much in his push on Davies - but his reaction demonstrated how this West Ham side are starting to get very frustrated with their struggles to break Everton down. 

WEST HAM 0-1 EVERTON

Sky Sports' Ben Grounds at the London Stadium:

"Last roll of the dice from Moyes. His players are giving everything to find this equaliser. Diop was feeling the back of his hamstring a few moments ago, but he's going to have to play on now. Frustration from Lingard."

WEST HAM 0-1 EVERTON

74: Yarmolenko is straight into the action on the right flank. He's looking to cut back inside on his left but Everton double up on him and close him down.

WEST HAM 0-1 EVERTON

73: Yarmolenko is coming on for West Ham. Can he be the one to unlock this Everton defence? 

He replaces Benrahma who has been below his best today and missed that great chance in the first half.

WEST HAM 0-1 EVERTON

72: The first booking of the day goes to Soucek for a rough tackle on Richarlison.

WEST HAM 0-1 EVERTON

72: Most of this half has been played in Everton's half but we have some end-to-end action as Antonio's drive forward is halted by Keane and Richarlison and Calvert-Lewin try to break for the visitors... but they also get snuffed out.

WEST HAM 0-1 EVERTON

69: An unnecessary foul from Allan, sliding in and not winning the ball off Fornals, gives Lingard a chance to swing in a free-kick from the left. 

He bends it towards the penalty spot but Keane is there to head away. The visitors back three really have been so solid this afternoon. 

WEST HAM 0-1 EVERTON

67: Good defending from Coleman stops Benrahma making progress down the left flank and Lingard then shows his frustration when a one-two with Antonio leads to him losing out to Godfrey and giving away a free-kick.

WEST HAM 0-1 EVERTON

65: Good footwork from Bowen on the edge of the Everton box to make some space to chip in a cross but - like so many of West Ham's crosses this afternoon - Everton deal with it comfortably.

WEST HAM 0-1 EVERTON

Sky Sports' Ben Grounds at the London Stadium:

"Mason Holgate has positioned himself in the right-hand channel of Everton's back three with Godfrey moving across into the central position, with Michael Keane to his left."

WEST HAM 0-1 EVERTON

62: Change for Everton with Mina coming off with an injury and Holgate taking his place.

WEST HAM 0-1 EVERTON

Sky Sports' Ben Grounds at the London Stadium:

"That's a huge let-off for Everton. Coufal was afforded far too much time and he couldn't have done much more. The rebound might have fallen kindly for Bowen but he just couldn't readjust his feet."

WEST HAM 0-1 EVERTON

61: POST! AND WHAT A MISS! Coufal almost pulls West Ham level! And then Bowen somehow misses the follow up with the goal at his mercy!

Fornals lays it off to the on-rushing right-back as he bursts into the box but his angled effort across Pickford comes back off the woodwork and Bowen somehow misses from three yards out! 

He's had to leap over the keeper and can't position his body correctly to divert the ball goalwards when it hits him, with the ball instead falling safely square for Pickford to gather!

WEST HAM 0-1 EVERTON

59: Cresswell isn't going to be carry on and Fredericks comes on for the Hammers on-field skipper. 

Fredericks takes the armband for now but signals he'll pass it on to Diop when the opportunity arises! 

WEST HAM 0-1 EVERTON

Sky Sports' Ben Grounds at the London Stadium:

"It looks like that injury to Cresswell is worse than initially feared. He's only just come from a lay-off as well. That's a big blow for the hosts. Cresswell was desperate to play on through the pain."

WEST HAM 0-1 EVERTON

58: West Ham have dominated possession without testing Pickford so far in this half. Indeed, as we approach the hour mark, the Everton stopper is yet to make a save.

WEST HAM 0-1 EVERTON

57: West Ham enjoying plenty of territory since the restart but they have been lacking the quality in the final third.

An offside flag on Bowen stops their latest attack. 

WEST HAM 0-1 EVERTON

55: BLOCK! Antonio finds Cresswell in space, he's been wincing with the effects of that injury but he gets a cross in which comes back to Fornals just inside the area but his effort is blocked behind for a corner.

It's another wasted cross from the Hammers... and Benrahma's attempt to cross from open play moments later is awful. 

WEST HAM 0-1 EVERTON

54: Cresswell up and running again now but he slips as he attempts a diagonal into the Everton area and Keane clears the danger. 

WEST HAM 0-1 EVERTON

Sky Sports' Ben Grounds at the London Stadium:

"England assistant manager Steve Holland is in the stands, and he will have been impressed by Pickford's commanding presence as his instructions continue to echo around this vast bowl of a stadium."

WEST HAM 0-1 EVERTON

52: It's a poor free-kick from Lingard, failing to beat the first man, and there's not much more invention on the follow-up delivery from Fornals, which is easily claimed by Pickford.

WEST HAM 0-1 EVERTON

Sky Sports' Ben Grounds at the London Stadium:

"Stuart Attwell wasn't rushing for anyone in making that decision. It's fast-paced but he had a long hard look at that challenge before giving it West Ham's way. I counted at least five seconds. Cresswell is hobbling."

WEST HAM 0-1 EVERTON

51: Benrahma, Fornals, and Soucek exchange passes on the edge of the Everton box but there's no way through. 

It comes out to Cresswell but a poor touch leaves him lunging for the ball and he comes off worse as Godfrey nips in to take it. Perhaps fortunate to get the free-kick... but he's not going to be able to take it himself! 

WEST HAM 0-1 EVERTON

50: Another cross hooked in by Digne but this one is far too deep and Cresswell is able to hook clear. 

West Ham yet to really get going at the start of the second half. They need to find some rhythm if they're going to get back into this important match.
