Lukaku & Barkley Guide Everton Past West Ham

English Premier League

Result: Everton 2-0 West Ham United

Date: 30 October 2016

Venue: Goodison Park 

Goals from Romelu Lukaku and Ross Barkley handed Everton a 2-0 win over West Ham United at Goodison Park.

The first chance of the game fell for Dimitri Payet. He found himself in acres of space after a West Ham attack and from the centre of the box hit a right footed but was well saved into the right corner.

Everton were also in the game and in the 22nd minute Ross Barkley got a great chance to open the scoring. Bryan Oviedo made a telling pass into the centre of the box, Barkley got to the end of the pass and unleashed a right footed shot that was saved at the centre of the goal.

In the 38th minute another great chance fell for Ramiro Funes however his shot was also saved from a header inside the box following a cross from Kevin Mirallas.

However in the 50th minute Romelu Lukaku broke the deadlock, as the Belgian headed home from close range, after some good work by Yannick Bolasie.

Ross Barkley made it 2-0 in the 76th minute. He initially was at the heart of a counter-attack as he drifted brilliantly out of danger and released the ball to Lukaku with a fantastic cross field pass. The Belgian waited for his teammate to catch up and picked him out at the far post and Barkley slotted home on the volley.

The game slowed somewhat and effectively West Ham were wrestled out of the game for a home win for Everton.
