Everton 2-1 West Ham

Our unbeaten run came to and end at Goodison Park when Everton snatched a 2-1 victory in a match that West Ham were unlucky to lose.

Key decisions went against a very brave Irons side which this week has been ravaged by injuries.

Key players Diafra Sakho, Enner Valencia, Alex Song and Stewart Downing were all missing from the starting lineup, and it was apparent that the pace in the team was missing.

Everton took the lead through a Lukaku strike which simply should not have been given. It was offside, and it was harsh on West Ham to find themselves behind at half time.

However the second half saw a different approach from West Ham with the introduction of Mauro Zarate, who added much needed pace to the side.

West Ham were back on level terms on 56 minutes when Zarate slotted home a well deserved equaliser.

It was then that it looked like the points would be heading to East London, with West Ham throwing the kitchen sink at Everton for the winner, and were very much in control of the game.

However it was not to be, as West Ham were caught out on the break and conceded a Leon Osman goal, which turned out to be the winner.

It was harsh on West Ham who fought well and were simply robbed of a draw by a poor decision from the linesman.
