  • Thanks for tuning in this afternoon. Stay with Sky Sports for the full match report and all the reaction.

  • That's it! Steven Pienaar's first-half goal hands Everton the three points as they beat Fulham 1-0.

  • Manolev is booked in the dying stages for a bodycheck on Pienaar.

  • Pienaar picks out Baines with the delivery and Everton are happy to sit on possession in the Fulham half as the seconds trickle down.

  • It seems Fulham have run out of time to pull something back as Everton win a free-kick on the left late on.

  • Senderos gets away from Baines and finds Ruiz on the edge of the box. His ball in is seen away by the Toffees defence and falls to Emanuelson but it's high and wide.

  • A cross in from Pienaar is chested down by Fellaini and he tries to set up Osman but can't quite pick out his man.

  • Everton come close to doubling their lead late on as Barkley unleashes a shot but Schwarzer denies him with a strong save. Four minutes of stoppage time have been added.

  • Everton win a free-kick just inside their own half but Senderos is there to prevent Anichebe from latching onto it and the ball goes to Schwarzer.

  • A great header from Jagielka sets Pienaar on his way but he allows the ball to go out in midfield and Fulham get a throw-in.

  • Ruiz lifts a long ball directly into the box and it's Jagielka this time that's there to hoof it away and dissolve the threat.

  • Howard charges out to punch away a Manolev cross as Fulham ramp up the pressure in these dying moments.

  • Another free-kick is handed to Fulham in midfield and Duff lofts it in this time but Osman is there to get it away to safety.

  • Petric sends the resulting free-kick straight into the wall and Everton have the chance to regroup at the back.

  • Emanuelson does brilliantly with a surging run through the heart of midfield and he draws a foul from Osman, who earns a booking.

  • We're into the final five minutes of regular time and Everton are getting forward. Baines drives in a fabulous cross and Fellaini is poised perfectly to meet it but he somehow thumps it into the ground and over the bar from in front of goal.

  • Enoh is back on his feet - which is just as well really because Jol has made all three of his changes this afternoon.

  • There's another break in play as Enoh goes down in apparent pain after rising to greet the ball with Pienaar. There doesn't appear to be much contact and it looks like he's landed awkwardly.

  • Osman is fouled by Kacaniklic in the Everton half to hand the hosts a free-kick, which is lofted up to Anichebe, who holds off Senderos to find Mirallas.

  • Pienaar tries to charge down Schwarzer as he takes a kick but the keeper, who has been solid so far this afternoon, keeps his cool.
