  • And that's it! Everton twice come from behind to earn three priceless points, while also extending their six-year unbeaten run at Upton Park. They're also now the only remaining Premier League side with an unbeaten record this season, with Liverpool having lost to Southampton in one of the other 1500 kick-offs. It's up to joint-second for the Toffees, for the time being anyway, while West Ham remain in the bottom-half, and could drop lower than 11th by the time this weekend's action is over.

  • Another chance to make 100% sure of the points as Kevin Mirallas breaks down the wing with two waiting in the middle, but he scuffs his attempted delivery, which fails to clear the first man.

  • The Hammers know they need a goal here and are pushing every one forward, although they waste a good chance now as a decent crossing opportunity ends with the ball being delivered right into the arms of Tim Howard.

  • Romelu Lukaku should probably have just put this game to bed as he's played into the area with plenty of the goal to aim for, but it looks like he wants to walk it in, but ends up turning into his marker who easily robs him of possession.

  • The fourth official raises his board and shows there will be seven minutes of injury-time added on here at the end. Plenty time for West Ham to snatch a point, although with 10 men, there might be no way back.

  • After a lengthy break the game gets back under way, and Silvain Distin almost snatches a quick-fire equaliser, getting his head to the end of a delivery into the area , but he can't quite direct it and the ball fizzes out wide. Romelu Lukaku, meanwhile, seems to have regained all his senses and returns to the field for the final few minutes.

  • The home fans have been absolutely stunned into silence, and somehow Everton have turned this game completely on its head. Kevin Mirallas does all of the hard work, twisting and turning in the area before somehow clipping a delivery into the danger zone, and Romelu Lukaku is most determined and heads the ball down and into the bottom corner. There's no celebration, though, because the striker took a huge blow to his head, and looked to have been unconscious for quite a few moments there. He's hobbling off the park now, looking very groggy indeed, although if he can't carry on both sides will finish the game with 10 men, as Everton have already used all their substitutes.

  • GOAL! West Ham 2-3 Everton! Romelu Lukaku!

  • That is simply stunning! Leighton Baines is behind the resulting free-kick, and just like before this one is heading nowhere else expect the very top corner, although it's the other side of the goal this time, with the England international's sublime curling effort going in off the angle of the post. You won't see a better free-kick this weekend, that's for sure.

  • GOAL! West Ham 2-2 Everton! Leighton Baines!

  • Mark Noble turns from hero to zero now as the West Ham captain is shown a second yellow card for a foul on Ross Barkely, and Everton now have a huge chance to rescue something from this game.

  • Third and final change for West Ham now As Kevin Nolan makes way for Matthew Taylor, with Sam Allardyce looking to sure up his midfield for the final 10 or so minutes.

  • Everton's unbeaten start to the season is under serious threat now, and with all three substitutions having been made, there's little else Roberto Martinez can do to impact the outcome of this game, besides some astute positioning of the men he has at his disposal.

  • For all of Everton's possession, it's West Ham who have the best chance of the half as Kevin Nolan is upended inside the area, with Mark Noble stepping up to slot home a textbook spot-kick to put the hosts back in front.

  • GOAL! West Ham 2-1 Everton! Mark Noble!

  • Penalty to West Ham!

  • Everton's possession stat has now climbed to 70% in this half, although West Ham did just have a half-decent chance after Mladen Petric blocked an attempted clearance to win the ball, but he couldn't get it out from under his feet as the chance went begging.

  • Another change for West Ham now as Ricardo Vaz Te is brought on in place of Matt Jarvis.

  • Here come Everton again, and in particular Leighton Baines, who breaks down the left wing before playing a neat one-two and whipping a ball into the area, with his effort taking a big deflection and forcing Jussi Jaaskelainen into a brilliant reflex save.

  • West Ham finally work their way into the opposition half, and end up winning a corner, but after rising well to meet the delivery in the area, Mohamed Diame can only head wide of the mark.
