Everton 1-0 West Ham United – Premier League – 1st March 2014

Soccer - Barclays Premier League - Everton v West Ham United - Goodison Park

A late goal from sub Romelu Lukaku eventually broke down a stubborn West Ham rearguard to secure a precious three points for the Toffees at Goodison Park on Saturday. Despite having the lion’s share of the possession, the home side struggled to break down a well-organised Hammers’ defence. Steven Naiasmith did his best to make the breakthrough for the Toffees while Sam Allardyce decided to replace Carlton Cole with Andy Carroll after just 28 minutes of action. But ultimately it was Roberto Martinez’s decision to bring on Lukaku that would make the difference, with the big Belgian netting from a Leighton Baines centre late on.

    Very impressed by West Ham. They aren’t going to push for Europe any time soon but they are a force to be reckoned with and no team will look forward to playing against them.

    Everton are in decent form. Not exactly on fire, but definitely in with a chance of Europa League next season.

    Which, as a Man Utd supporter, fills me with relief.

    Sorry Toffees, those away trips to Vilnius & Vienna are all yours. Beautiful places for sure. Just not good for rest.
