Commentary

It will be another home task for Everton next time out, when they face Watford in just under a week - but West Ham will get back to the Europa League before then, hosting Genk on Thursday. Until then, thank you for joining us - and have a great week!
For David Moyes though, it is a big win and one that the Hammers faithful will be delighted with. He got a warm reception from the Toffees upon his arrival - even in victory today, he is unlikely to have shrugged off their old affection.
Rafa Benítez is going to have plenty to mull with that one. His side's sterling run at home under his watch comes to an end and now he must consider his options. The lack of a first-choice finisher did not help today - but his side would have been second best, even if they had managed a draw.
Angelo Ogbonna's header with just over a quarter-hour to go is the difference, as West Ham pick up a major victory over rivals Everton at Goodison Park! David Moyes trumps his former club, who miss the chance to go into the top four. Full-time in the Premier League, it finishes Everton 0-1 West Ham.
90' + 6' FULL-TIME: EVERTON 0-1 WEST HAM
90' + 5' Pickford is up for the corner... and Godfrey heads over! That will be that!
A. Yarmolenko
J. Bowen
90' + 4' Andriy Yarmolenko will take Bowen's place for West Ham, with a final Everton corner to come...
90' + 3' One last roll of the dive for the hosts...
90' + 1' There will be four added minutes here - and Gray almost finds the response in the first of them! Zouma makes the block superbly against his old club.
89' Pickford goes full stretch to deny another West Ham second now, but it is going to take something special for the Toffees - or cataclysmic for the Hammers - to get an equaliser, you'd wager. 
M. Lanzini
S. Benrahma
87' West Ham make another change now, as Manuel Lanzini replaces Said Benrahma.
86' That's almost a second for Ogbonna! Chaos reigns in the Everton box and as the Toffees fail to dig themselves out of danger, the defender comes close to tucking a second in the back of the net.
84' No player has had more ball carries leading to a shot (12) or a goal (3) than Everton’s Demarai Gray in the Premier League this season. West Ham’s Michail Antonio has also had three ball carries leading to a goal this term.
82' Godfrey comes close to steering a corner over the crossbar now. Everton's time is ticking down.
C. Dawson
T. Souček
79' For West Ham, Craig Dawson replaces Tomas Soucek, following that facial injury.
A. Gordon
A. Iwobi
79' Changes now for the first time in this match. For Everton, Anthony Gordon replaces Alex Iwobi.
78' The Hammers edge the set-piece away at first glance and the hosts groan in frustration. They are running out of opportunities.
76' Some disgruntlement from West Ham now as play continues despite an apparent facial injury for Soucek - and Everton win a corner while he is down too.
J. Bowen
Assist
74' Jarrod Bowen delivered the corner there and the arc of his effort could well have come in off the far post himself. That header certainly caused no issues though.
A. Ogbonna
Goal
74' GOAL! ANGLEO OGBONNA HAS THE BREAKTHROUGH FOR WEST HAM! 1-0! The corner is whipped in and it is a towering header from the defender, beating out Godfrey and steering it beyond Pickford in at the left post on the far side. The pressure tells for the Hammers!
73' Rondon loops a grazed header straight to Fabianski, who has no real issue with it, and then West Ham snap up a corner down the other end.
72' Play resumes and West Ham pat it easily back to Pickford to get the game back underway.
70' Pickford smashes the ball out of play under little pressure - but it is an act of sportsmanship, with Antonio down injured in back play.
68' Moments after Antonio sees a shot blocked, West Ham bear down again. This is a match being played in Toffees territory right now.
66' With a third of this game to go, there is still nothing to split either side. The time for heroes is now - especially for Everton, who would be letting a golden chance slip if they fail to come up with the win here.
64' Iwobi slots another finish wide of the mark. There's a gradual sense that if there is a winner in this, it is going to come very late in the day.
62' Andros Townsend has been directly involved in eight goals in nine games in all competitions for Everton (5 goals, 3 assists), as many as he had in his final 61 appearances for Crystal Palace (2 goals, 6 assists). However, Townsend has never scored in 14 games against West Ham, more than he’s faced any other side without finding the net in his career.
60' Both sides are making limited movements on their bench. Are we poised to see some substitutions enter the equation to shake things up?
58' With the hour mark fast approaching, both sides are still looking for a breakthrough. Opportunities are starting to come thick and fast though.
56' The attempts are flying in! Coleman sticks a cross-turned-shot over the goalmouth down one end, then Benrahma is duly blocked back down the other end again,
54' Benrahma lofts a neat finish in towards Pickford, on the back of a Hammers corner, and the Everton and England shotstopper has no issue fielding that one.
52' Inches away for Everton! Townsend turns a low, hanging cross in towards the left post and Rondon just directs it waywardly beyond the woodwork with an inspired touch.
50' Iwobi - who has been one of the brighter sparks up front - sees an effort duly blocked now by the visiting defence, smothering away any opportunity for a follow-up.
48' Are the Toffees missing that killer instinct up front today? There will be questions if they fail to find the net today, though given the absence of Calvert-Lewin and Richarlison, it is a double blow.
46' We're back underway for the second half at Goodison Park. Will Everton be able to edge this one or can West Ham sneak a winner for their boss against his old side?
Everton have won seven points from losing positions in the Premier League this season, more than any other side coming into this weekend’s games. Indeed, it’s already as many (or more) as they won in each of their last three campaigns, with the Toffees last winning more points from behind in 2017-18 (14).
There's nothing to separate Everton and West Ham at the interval at Goodison Park - but it is the Hammers, with a goal ruled out for offside, who are possibly shading this Premier League clash. At half-time, it is Everton 0-0 West Ham.
45' + 1' HALF-TIME: EVERTON 0-0 WEST HAM
45' The corner swings in and West Ham ably see it away. There will be one added minute in this first half.
44' Everton exert pressure back down the other half of the pitch. The sun is coming out on Merseyside - and Zouma rides to the rescue, deflecting Coleman out for a corner.
42' Rice has really been busting a gut to put this one in favour for his side, but a finish whipped over from distance ensures this remains on level terms.
40' Still no goals with five minutes to go, but both sides are definitely threatening more than ever.
38' Now Gray forces a save down the opposite end, and the Hammers respond by tearing down the other end to win consecutive corners. This one is coming to life now.
36' Soucek has it in the back of the net - but the flag is up! West Ham fashion a great opportunity and Pickford palms an initial effort away, only to spill it into the path of the former, who was in an offside position.
35' Doucoure is really starting to take this game by the scruff of the neck. A header skims its way off to the left edge of the box now and West Ham sweat a little harder.
33' Almost an own goal for West Ham! Not one but two errant legs almost put an Everton cross into their own net, and Cresswell manages to hurry it away before any damage can be wrought.
Pablo Fornals
Yellow Card
31' Fornals can't believe he's fouled Townsend there - but not only is it a foul, it is a yellow card for the West Ham man.
29' West Ham have lost two of their last three Premier League games (W1), more than they had in their previous nine combined (1). However, away from home West Ham are unbeaten in six Premier League matches (W4 D2), with the Hammers last having a longer such run in the competition back in January 2009 (7 games).
27' Oh, what a chance! Everton let fly with a sublime ball, snaking across an open box and there is no-one there to tap it past Fabianski.
25' An early current of restlessness at Goodison Park looks to have subsided now. The Toffees are holding this game, particularly around the middle - they are winning more duels on the whole.
23' Iwobi is the latest man to try his luck. He sees his effort blocked as he tries to drive home. Everton are definitely growing into this one.
21' Doucoure and Iwobi combine around the Hammers' box, but don't manage to pick up anything out that can seriously leave Fabianski threatened.
19' West Ham are shading this one so far, but both teams are giving the impression that they could find a breakthrough. Everton have steadily built their way into the game.
17' Everton need a spark - and now they find one with a maze-like run back through the middle. Townsend, one of their form players, is the architect with a lacking final ball; Doucoure blazes a subsequent finish off-target.
15' Everton have won all three of their Premier League home games so far this season – they last won each of their first four at Goodison Park in a league campaign back in 1978-79 under Gordon Lee.
13' Antonio does win the free-kick this time, dragged down by Keane, who dodges any further action for the foul.
11' Benrahma - one of the standout performers of the season so far for David Moyes - almost tees up a half-chance now but the West Ham finish is thumped over the crossbar and into orbit instead.
M. Antonio
Yellow Card
9' Antonio goes down under a challenge now but the referee feels the contact is minimal - and books the West Ham man for simulation instead.
7' West Ham are showing some lively promise, dancing around the corners of the turf. It has been a relatively low-wattage, consistent start to life for both.
5' If there's one side that needs to find a little more rhythm, it is the Toffees at this early juncture. Rafa Benitez flicks a few gestures to his wide players on the side.
3' Both sides show early sparks on Merseyside - a flashed pass sails beyond Antonio as the Hammers look to cut up their hosts and then Everton push their way back down the other end.
1' We are underway in this Premier League clash between Everton and West Ham!
The teams have emerged at Goodison Park and we are moments away from kick-off. Today's referee is Stuart Attwell.
West Ham have won two of their last three Premier League away games against Everton (L1), as many as they had in their previous 21 visits to Goodison Park. They’re looking to win consecutive away league games against the Toffees for the first time since March 1930.
Everton have won more Premier League games (27) and scored more Premier League goals (87) against West Ham than they have vs any other side in the competition. Food for thought, that.
Subs: Manuel Lanzini, Nikola Vlasic, Alphonse Areola, Harrison Ashby, Andriy Yarmolenko, Craig Dawson, Issa Diop, Jamal Baptiste, Arthur Masuaku.
WEST HAM (4-2-3-1): Lukasz Fabianski; Ben Johnson, Kurt Zouma, Angelo Ogbonna, Aaron Cresswell; Tomas Soucek, Declan Rice; Jarrod Bowen, Said Benrahma, Pablo Fornals; Michail Antonio.
Subs: Mason Holgate, Harry Tyrer, Jonjoe Kenny, Asmir Begovic, Lewis Dobbin, Jean-Philippe Gbamin, Tom Davies, Yerry Mina, Anthony Gordon.
EVERTON (4-4-1-1): Jordan Pickford; Seamus Coleman, Ben Godfrey, Michael Keane, Lucas Digne;  Andros Townsend, Abdoulaye Doucoure, Allan, Alex Iwobi; Demarai Gray; Salomon Rondon.
The Toffees will have to contend without several of their regular first-teamers however, with Richarlison and Dominic Calvert-Lewin both missing up front for the hosts. West Ham though are packing the firepower; Michail Antonio leads the line for the visitors.
But between them and that spot stands another European contender, in the shape of David Moyes' Hammers. It has been a solid start to the campaign for the ex-Toffees boss at London Stadium - and a win over a side who likely present a key rival will surely boost their prospects.
Dark clouds loomed on Merseyside when Carlo Ancelotti departed and fans were aghast at Rafael Benitez's arrival - but the former Liverpool boss has certainly made his mark to start with. A win will see them sail past Manchester United - and into the Champions League places.
Hello and welcome to live coverage of the 2021-22 Premier League season, as Everton look to leapfrog into the top four against West Ham at Goodison Park.
