  • Villa 0 Everton 2. All over and the Toffees take the spoils. Villa held their own, but luck was against then.

  • Baines wins a late free-kick. Villa frustration boiling over. Jagielka looks to jog forward, but then decides against it. Final few seconds being played out.

  • Corner played out to McCarthy, who tees up Baines 25 yards out. He decides to try his luck, but drags his shot a little and sees it skid well past the post.

  • Deulofeu gets his first touch. A direct run and a couple of step-overs see him into the box, and he wins a corner off Clark. Deulofeu decides to take himself.

  • Vlaar concedes a throw. Villa on the back foot again when they really need to be piling forward. Not going to be their afternoon.

  • Four minutes of stoppage-time to be played.

  • Flag up this time against Mirallas. He disagrees with the decision. It is his final act as he is replaced by Deulofeu. Would have liked to see more of him, but Martinez can't take too many risks.

  • Not what Villa need as Mirallas drives into the box and sends a cross behind off Baker. Corner taken short, and backwards. Everton end up back on halfway. They have no need to go for a third.

  • Bacuna bombing down the right, but is double-teamed by Baines and Naismith. Everton working hard to keep their clean sheet intact. Lukaku, again, being left all along up top.

  • Howard with a bit of time-wasting, which goes unpunished. He lumps long, happy to get the ball as far away as possible from his goal.

  • Villa still clinging to hope. Weimann wide to their right, and sending over across. Helenius goes up with Distin and as the ball squirms behind, it is Everton who get the decision.

  • Everton already looking towards the final whistle. They aren't putting too much emphasis on getting forward now. They are happy to go for the corners.

  • Mirallas down the middle, but the door is slammed in his face. Naismith then flicks the ball cleverly forward and is taken out. Free-kick to Everton which they are in no rush to take. When they do, Naismith is picked out and sends a low drive inches past the post.

  • Mirallas still looking lively. He is moved over to the left, with Naismith out on the right. Everton on course to claim a fourth win in five - Martinez has really taken them on.

  • Surely all over now. Plenty of the home supporters see it that way, with a mass exodus towards the exits taking place. Lambert stood head bowed on the touchline.

  • GOAL EVERTON - OSMAN. Mirallas takes the corner short and Barry ends up being worked into acres of space. He gets his head up and cuts back to the edge of the box for Osman to stroke low into the bottom corner.

  • Second change being made by Everton. Pienaar makes way for Naismith. Just a case of getting fresh legs out there at this stage.

  • Mirallas bursting through challenges. He then slows things down to walking pace 30 yards from goal. Eventually Lukaku is picked out and he sees a shot flick behind for a corner off Clark.

  • Barry and Osman keeping things ticking over for Everton. We said experience could be key, and it is looking that way at the moment. Everton know how to close games out.

  • Attacking change by Villa, with Helenius thrown on in place of Tonev. Big frontman who will added another physical presence.
