All over at Goodison Park. West Ham pick up their first points of the season, and they were richly deserved too. A happy birthday indeed for Manuel Pellegrini!
Is 65 still the retirement age? Forget. But the now-65-year-old will be happy with that! He's still in a job and that will ease the pressure somewhat.
- Yellow cardBernardEverton
Now a late yellow for Bernard. That should be that.
The man of the match...
- Yellow cardRobert SnodgrassWest Ham United
Yellow for Snodgrass, but he's not happy having got the ball first before Bernard. A lot of force behind it, mind.
Wowza. Five minutes added on!
Game is just winding down now and that's all because of West Ham's management of the game. Had Niasse taken his chance, it could have been different.
OFF THE BAR! Digne finds Niasse but he can only volley against the bar from eight yards out! He has to put that away.
- OffAndriy YarmolenkoWest Ham United
- OnRobert SnodgrassWest Ham United
The away support show their appreciation for Yarmolenko, who makes way for Snodgrass.
Anderson has had a bright afternoon too and he earns the Hammers a corner. West Ham in no rush to take this one, and the cross is eventually cleared.
That's Walcott's afternoon over. On comes Lookman.
Groans from Goodison Park as Sigurdsson hits it straight into the wall, and straight at Yarmolenko it seems, who is down holding his face as the referee stops play.
- Yellow cardDeclan RiceWest Ham United
Rice goes in the book after bringing down Walcott. 25 yards out. Right in the centre... Sigurdsson fancies this.
WIDE! Speculative attempt from Anderon as he cuts onto his right foot before shooting from 25 yards out, but it's always curling away from goal.
- OffMark NobleWest Ham United
- OnCarlos SánchezWest Ham United
Pretty much like for like as Noble goes off for Carlos Sanchez. Commentator states Lucas Perez was set to come on, but he's seen on the sidelines sitting down, shaking his head while a member of the backroom staff has a word with him. Refusing to warm-up? That's being mooted...
- OffCenk TosunEverton
- OnOumar NiasseEverton
And that is Tosun's final play! Quite the contrast, not an afternoon to remember for the forward. On comes Niasse.
OVER! The flag stays down as Calvert-Lewin's ricocheted pass finds Tosun, but the striker can only fire over on the turn about eight yards out.
- OffMarko ArnautovicWest Ham United
- OnMichail AntonioWest Ham United
And that is pretty much Arnautovic's final play. He has a slight niggle it seems, and makes way for Antonio.
Just too much space for West Ham in that attack. Obiang had plenty of time to find Arnie, who played it back to Obiang, who then drew in the defenders before finding the Austrian once more. Could be the killer blow.
- GoalMarko ArnautovicWest Ham United
GOAL! And it does indeed suit West Ham!
Arnautovic gets the goal his performance deserves. Obiang and Arnie combine in devastating fashion. The former threads it through for the latter, whose first-time effort sneaks under Pickford.
An hour gone, 30 to go. It remains open, and impossible to call on who will strike next. Could suit West Ham if Everton continue to push!
Entertaining, this, and you feel there's a goal or two left. Cue 2-1 finish...
Everton are calling for a penalty but referee Martin Atkinson is not interested. Perhaps more the fans calling for it as Obiang shoulders Sigurdsson off the ball. Never a penalty.
Now it's Zabaleta who goes into the book as he checks the run of Bernard to ensure he cannot fly past the defender.
Yarmolenko a lucky man as he lets a cross go over his head, but Digne can't respond to bring it down in time inside the West Ham box.
- Yellow cardAndriy YarmolenkoWest Ham United
Booking for Yarmolenko after he pulls back Bernard. Pure frustration at being dispossessed in the first place.
It may be Everton who need to fight their way back into it but that hasn't put West Ham off an attack or two. They came forward in numbers but Obiang skews an effort well wide after being found by Anderson.
A decent start to the half from Everton, but Walcott's cross is headed away by Zabaleta.
- 2nd Half
And we are back under way at Goodison Park. Finely poised, this. Everton were woeful but are very much in it - all on them to peg West Ham back now.
- End of 1st Half
There goes the half-time whistle. What a blow for West Ham with just seconds to go until the break. Everton will come out with a spring in their step now...
- GoalGylfi SigurdssonEverton
GOAL! What a time to score... Gueye plays it out wide to Kenny, whose cross picks out Sigurdsson - and that's a fine header beyond a helpless Fabianski.
Just the two minutes added on.
- OffMorgan SchneiderlinEverton
Wow. A first-half sub.... Off goes Schneiderlin - that will hurt, unless he actually has an injury...
- Yellow cardArthur MasuakuWest Ham United
Very, very, very high boot from Masuaku, who karate kicks Walcott and even leaves his studs on the back of the winger's head. Walcott is fine, and there was no malice in it, but the Everton fans feel he is lucky to escape with just a yellow.
Replays showed Tosun actually scuffed that attempt, and that he was none too happy with Sigurdsson, who got in his way somewhat as he looked to unleash the strike. Can't have helped the striker.
SAVE! Game is very open as Everton look to work their way back into the match. It's a decent chance for Tosun, but his low strike is too close to Fabianski after West Ham's defence kept backing off.
Few saw this coming, and there will be question marks over Everton's play in the build-up for both goals. So, so sloppy.
- GoalAndriy YarmolenkoWest Ham United
WHAT A GOAL! Everton are the masters of their own destruction... but what a strike from Yarmolenko.
Pickford's pass out is woeful and after Noble is brought down, play is waved on as Yarmolenko cuts onto his left foot and curls a beauty past Pickford.
That's two goals in 31 minutes for the Ukrainian.
Another hairy moment for Everton. Schneiderlin gets caught in possession and Obiang looks to send Arnautovic through on goal. However, Pickford's starting position is perfect and he rushes out to clear just in time.
And first since 2008...
SAVE! Big chance for the hosts. Digne ghosts past Zabaleta down the left and his cross finds Tosun in the middle of the penalty area. His header, however, is straight down the throat of Fabianski.
Said it could be a long afternoon for Arnautovic up front on his tod, but fair play, he's keeping the Everton defence busy. Early contender for MOTM a quarter of the game in as the camera cuts to Richarlison - the Toffees are missing him so far!
Just the fourth Ukrainian player to find the target in the Premier League...
SAVE! Well worked free-kick as Anderson picks out Diop, but his flick-on is too close to Pickford, who makes a simple stop.
Arnautovic seeks out Yarmolenko once more - not the easiest combo to type out quickly... - but this time the pass is too strong. Still, Yarmolenko gets on the end of it, but he's out wide and the attack ends when Noble crosses to no one.
Against the run of play - certainly. But it was a fine move from West Ham, with Arnautovic holding up play beautifully to allow a couple of team-mates to join him on the counter. Once he was free, you thought he'd go it alone, but he knew the percentages were higher if he'd square it - and right he was.
Everton must come from behind once more!
- GoalAndriy YarmolenkoWest Ham United
GOAL! Well. Well. Well!
Yarmolenko scores on his first West Ham start! Too easy for the visitors - Arnautovic is set free with a ball over the top and he lays it on a plate for Yarmolenko, who slots it past Pickford. Devastating counter.
Long ball from Gueye is so close to finding Calvert-Lewin over the top of the West Ham defence, but Fabianski comes out to claim.
Plenty going down the right for Everton. Walcott skips past Obiang, who goes to ground needlessly in an attempt to make a challenge, but the cross isn't good enough.
Still, Everton go on to win a corner, but it's half-cleared before Gueye scuffs an effort on goal. Scuffs is being nice, too...
First attack for West Ham. But Everton get back in numbers and squeeze the visitors back into their own half.
All Everton. West Ham set up deep with Arnautovic the lone man up top - could be a long afternoon for him.
Bright start from Everton with Kenny down the right wing, his cross finds Sigurdsson who lays it off for Walcott - but his attempt is blocked.
Digne then tries his luck from distance but it doesn't trouble Fabianski.
- 1st Half
We are a go at Goodison Park - it's Everton who get the game under way.
Pellegrini all smiles in the dugout. He's already in place with the players in the tunnel, ready to come out.
10 minutes to go. Tough one to call this one but you have to fancy a home win. Sticking my neck on the line? 3-1 Everton - but that's perhaps a bit hopeful on the goal front!
Talking of Lanzini, here he is on Instagram two days ago as he continues his road to recovery.
The Argentine is not expected to play until 2019 after undergoing knee surgery.
Last time out…
The home side won this fixture on both occasions last season. Everton demolished West Ham 4-0 at home last November, but the Hammers turned that on its head with a 3-1 win back in May.
Manuel Lanzini was on target twice that afternoon – oh how West Ham miss that man…
Not going to plan for Manuel Pellegrini so far, and the West Ham boss admits he still has plenty of convincing to do.
"These are moments that every club suffers at one time of the season," Pellegrini said. "In our case, we are trying to change some things.
"I don't think, if you have some doubts in the worst moment, you can continue working the same way. I must convince [everyone] what I am doing.
West Ham may be winless, but Everton boss Marco Silva is taking nothing for granted.
"For us it is not important what position they are, whether or not they are looking for their first win, we have to keep focusing on our work to give 100 per cent and play at the best level to win the game," he said.
"We are talking about a club with a lot of quality in individual players and they spent a lot of money and signed a lot of new players.
"They have a new manager as well and sometimes it takes time to settle everything. We will respect them but the most important thing is what we can do."
A bit more on the team news...
A huge six changes for West Ham. Pablo Zabaleta, Arthur Masuaku, Pedro Obiang, Declan Rice, Mark Noble and Andriy Yarmolenko all come in.
Out go Ryan Fredericks, Aaron Cresswell, Carlos Sanchez, Robert Snodgrass and Michail Antonio, while Jack Wilshere is injured. So too, Javier Hernandez, who is out with a virus.
For Everton it's two changes - A Seamus Coleman injury means Jonjo Kenny comes in, while Idrissa Gueye replaces Tom Davies in central midfield.
Happy birthday Manuel Pellegrini! May your 65th bring you much prosperity, and the gift of three points. Not if you’re an Everton fan, mind, who are out to spoil the party.
