GOAL Disaster struck for the visitors in the 16th minute when Hammers’ Czech international Radoslav Kovac attempted an overhead kick and the result was what he wanted as it deflected in off Tony Hibbert for an own goal that David Moyes did not need.

GOAL However, Everton fought back to level before half-time when Tim Cahill crossed to Seamus Coleman who side-footed home.

The Toffees had the better of the chances and were unable to put them away but they managed to refute West Ham’s claims of grabbing a second win in a row at home for the first time this season.
