Everton 0-1 West Ham United

(75′ mins); Iwobi’s dragged another attempt across the face of goal, while Keane thwarted Antonio – neither side, at this stage, looking capable of breaking the seal.     

But with just a quarter of an hour remaining, West Ham snatched the lead. Angelo Ogbonna arrived unmarked to head Bowen’s flag-kick beyond Pickford – Exactly what the games needed to shake it from its cumbersome slumber.
