    Time:90'
    • Bolton Wanderers
    • Everton
    • - Don't forget you can watch highlights of this match, along with every Premier League game, from 00:01 on Monday morning (UK only).
    • 90+2 That's the whistle, Bolton cruise to victory and Everton, frankly, were ordinary.
    • 90+1 Two minutes added time being played.
    • 90' That is Sturridge's last act of the day as he comes off to a standing ovation, Muamba on in his place.
    • 89' Sturridge almost sends Lee through but his pass is blocked and it pops back to STURRIDGE BUT HE CURLS IT INCHES WIDE! What an effort!
    • 88' Elmander turns on the edge of the box and flashes a super drive for the top right that flashes inches wide!
    • 87' Sturridge has a pop from range but well wide this time.
    • 86' All a bit kick and rush from both sides now. Everton have been poor. Poor!
    • 85' Into the last five minutes and, save that spell early in the second half, Everton are poor and must wonder where there next win will come.
    • 84' The corner is sent to Baxter on the edge of the box but this time his shot is poor, well wide off the outside of his boot.
    • 83' Baxter drives in a low shot after a nice link-up betweek Arteta and Fellaini but Jaaskelainen tips it wide!
    • 81' Osman gets down the other end immediately but he spanks is shot over. Well over.
    • 80' Well. The whole of the ball and all that, and it didn't seem like it all crossed the line to me. That should have stood IMO. But hang on, from another angle it seems it may have crossed the line. Tight.
    • 79' Holden smashes a finish into the roof of the net after a wonderful backheel from Sturridge keeps a ball headed out in play, but the whistle has gone - apparently it did go out. That was close.
    • 78' EVERTON SUB: That Baxter comes on for Anichebe shows how desperate Everton's striking situation is. Not that he's a bad player, but he's a child and unproven at this level.
    • 77' Beckford is yelling at Fellaini for not playing his preferred ball but, frankly, he should have controlled it anyway.
    • 76' Fellaini robs Mark Davies and the ball in for Beckford is miscontrolled by the ex-Leeds man, who wanted it played ahead of him and not into feet.
    • 75' Free-kick to Bolton on the right but Holden's ball in is cleared. Now Osman picks it up but Sturridge intercepts.
    • 73' Throw to Bolton on the right wing. Everton really missing something up front - the Yak is banging them in for Leicester, which looks a poor move from Moyes now.
    • 72' Sturridge chases on to a long through ball but Howard gets out quick to claim.
    • 70' The free-kick is swung into the box by Arteta and Jaaskelainen takes under little pressure.
    • 69' Osman wins a throw on the right. Everton will stay 13th after this but only three points clear of the drop zone.
    • 68' Arteta plays it on for Anichebe but Mark Davies clears.
    • 67' And that's his third in three since joining on loan from Chelsea. Fernando who?
    • 66' Distin clears but the loose ball drops to Lee who heads it on and STURRIDGE! WHAT A FINISH! Oooooh he's on fire and he smashes a volley past the helpless Howard. 2-0. Everton in the poop.
    • 65' Sturridge wins a free-kick off Distin after a smart turn.
    • 64' Sturridge has a pop from 35 yards which goes well wide.
    • 63' Jaaskelainen slides out to claim just before Cahill can reach a through ball.
    • 62' Fellaini wins a header from a long ball, now Beckford holds it up for CAHILL but he turns and fires it over! Well over, and wide too. Got it all wrong.
    • 61' EVERTON SUB: Coleman and Bilyaletdinov off for Beckford and Osman. A very attacking change.
    • 61' KNIGHT UPDATE: Apparently he is walking about and is convinced he'll be back in a few weeks.
    • 60' BOLTON SUB: Matty Taylor makes way for Chung-Yong Lee.
    • 59' Elmander on the right draws a push from Distin and he raises a wry smile knowing he kind of bought that.
    • 58' Everton now have a free-kick just to the right of the box... Baines to take but into the arms of Jaaskelainen. A good ball not not enugh movement.
    • 57' Everton swarm forward again as Arteta finds Neville, who lays it off for Coleman, nice feet from him and inside to Fellaini who wastes it with a poor shot well wide from all of 25 yards.
    • 56' Gary Cahill blocks a shot from Anichebe after Distin found the striker with a nice through ball. This is much better from Everton.
    • 55' Taken short to Baines, a super ball but Kevin Davies heads away from Fellaini. Arteta on it now, Baines crosses well again but Anichebe can't meet it! Now Arteta tries a half-volley but miskicks, Everton still have it... Neville on the right, super slide tackle from Kevin Davies. Hurrah!
    • 54' Fellaini wins a free-kick off Taylor down the other end and Arteta wants it this time. Fellaini rises highest but his header is blocked and Everton have a corner.
    • 53' Strong play by Fellaini to hold off Holden, who goes down holding his face but play on. The ref eventually pulls play up as it's a potential head injury. He's fine really but Bolton ask the question - it was a slight hand off as Fellaini changed direction to get away.
    • 52' Free-kick to Bolton but Taylor puts it into the wall. He latches on to the rebound and is clearly taken out by Bilyaletdinov but no free-kick! Odd.
    • 51' Throw to Bolton on the right which Ricketts will launch in... headed away but back to the right-back, who miscontrols out for a goal kick.
    • 50' Great cross from Taylor on the left, low, fizzing and across the six-yard box but no-one gets a touch and it spins to safety.
    • 49' Jaaskelainen has it now. Slowish start to this half, too many long balls.
    • 48' Coleman blocks a cross that skews up in the air and into Howard's arms.
    • 47' Taylor with a decent low ball in but Distin hoofs it away.
    • 46' Second half underway. It's tipping it down now.
    • 45+3 Coleman crosses but it beats everyone and the far post too. Goal kick. Half-time and Bolton lead through Gary Cahill's early goal.
    • 45+3 Jaaskelainen slides to the edge of his box with Coleman racing in and he gets there first but slides out of the area, letting go of the ball just in time. Throw.
    • 45+2 Mark Davies finds Kevin Davies, now Taylor but his cross is poor and sails away for a throw.
    • 45+2 Looking back at that Wheater challenge, he didn't actually get the ball and Coleman's protests were with reason.
    • 45+1 Three minutes added time being played
    • 45' Taylor's ball in is met by Wheater and it goes back to Taylor. He loses out though and Everton break, Arteta and Cahill and Coleman is in on the right but a great challenge from Wheater, getting all the way back to slide in!
    • 44' Mark Davies has a pop from the edge of the box, super ball from Kevin Davies to find him, but it's deflected wide. Corner again.
    • 43' Groans as Elmander gives it away but Fellaini responds in kind and Matty Taylor buys a corner off Neville. Sturridge almost got there.
    • 42' Baines on the left with another dangerous ball, half-cleared but in flies Fellaini and Wheater whacks it clear!
    • 41' Lovely cross by Coleman but Bilyaletdinov, Anichebe and Cahill (T) all miss it! Now Baines has it and feeds Arteta but he shoots straight at the keeper.
    • 40' Taylor will whip this in left-footed but Howard flies across to punch one-handed. Good clearance.
    • 40' Good flick on by Elmander to Kevin Davies but his cut back for Sturridge is weak, he was falling as he played it, and Bilyaletdinov clears - until Elmander is fouled by Baines.
    • 39' Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere is in the crowd, I assume visiting his old friends from his loan spell last season.
    • 38' Fellaini tries to release Neville down the right but the flag is up for offside.
    • 37' Bilyaletdinov comes forward, a lot of space but he delays a touch and is closed down. Cahill (T) is on it though and he tries a pass wide, Baines in the end winning a throw. He gets it back, putting in another good cross but Cahill (G) heads out.
    • 36' An awkward bounce forces Distin to lean into the ball, the home fans yelp for hands but it was his chest and he almost flings his arm off in protest at the claims.
    • 35' A long punt upfield from the USA keeper goes straight out for a goal kick to Bolton, which Jaaskelainen puts long.
    • 34' Good ball in from Taylor and a touch diverts it on goal but straight at Howard, who gathers easily.
    • 33' Scrappy as a long one is aimed for Elmander, Coleman able to bring clear. But his ball hits Wheater, Sturridge comes forward and Heitinga fouls. An advantage is considered but the ref pulls it back.
    • 31' Neville finds Coleman just outside the box but a good firm tackle from Robinson and Bolton.
    • 30' The ball in from Holden is cleared but the visitors clear. Now Sturridge is on it but his first touch is again shaky and Everton get it away.
    • 29' Coleman gives it away, now Sturridge on the ball but Distin clips him and Bolton have a free-kick.
    • 28' This is David Wheater's Premier League debut for Bolton, having played in the Cup.
    • 27' Knight leaves on a stretcher in the end. Seems like his knee has gone, hopefully just a strain.
    • 26' BOLTON SUB: Wheater on for the stricken Knight.
    • 25' Eventually the corner is taken by Baines but Elmander heads away. Knight, who carried on, breaks down again and his day is over.
    • 24' Looks like they're both just a bit sore. Anichebe is already up while Knight seems alive. Sturridge and Elmander are arguing about the latter's failure to play him through earlier.
    • 23' Both Knight and Anichebe are hurt after that super tackle. Anichebe was caught slightly but then his trailing leg took Knight out. Both utterly accidental.
    • 22' Arteta with a super ball to free Anichebe who is clean but a super challenge from Knight sliding in! Corner.
    • 21' Anichebe down the right but his cut-back is cleared. Coleman with a cross but Gary Cahill gets a toe on it and Bolton clear.
    • 20' Sturridge with a deep cross, too close to the keeper Howard who claims easily.
    • 19' Taken short and Baines buys some space before shooting but it's congested and the low drive is blocked. Now Neville crosses and Knight away for a corner.
    • 18' Knight hauls down a furious Anichebe, no booking but a free-kick 30 yards or less from goal.
    • 17' Good stuff from Everton as Baines gets it on the left and he curls in a beauty, what a ball that dips and curls on to CAHILL SURELY but a poor miss! He uses his right foot when surely a Cahill header special was in order? The finish bounces into the ground, high and wide. Should have been 1-1.
    • 16' Everton with what is a rare spell of passing time...
    • 15' Sturridge is caught offside after a long pass from Robinson puts pressure on Neville.
    • 14' Jaaskelainen pumps it downfield, Heitinga in a muddle and Elmander gets it to Sturridge who slips Davies (K) in but Baines gets across him and passes back to Howard.
    • 13' Nothing comes from that free-kick but Everton attack again until Mark Davies tackles Anichebe.
    • 12' Baines tries to cross early but is taken out late by Elmander. Yellow card.
    • 11' Coleman with a deep cross that just drifts over defence and attack for a goal kick. David Moyes is furious at the marking on that goal, screaming blue murder at Distin and co.
    • 10' Bolton have a free-kick on the left wing which Holden will whip in right-footed.... GOAL! Gary Cahill! Lovely free-kick from Holden, near unplayable and Cahill's header runs off Heitinga, outfoxing Howard and in! 1-0.
    • 9' Lovely ball from left to right bu Sturridge, Ricketts beats Bilyaletdinov and then Distin but his cross is poor, really poor and on to the head of Neville with plenty of options.
    • 8' Cahill tries to find Sturridge but waves his hand in apology for a poor pass.
    • 7' Everton are struggling to get out of their half now, Cahill (Tim) increasingly deep...
    • 6' Ricketts gets forward and after some hesitation has a pop on goal but a low drive goes well wide.
    • 5' Gary Cahill turns on the edge of the Everton box but the visitors clear as he stumbles. Bolton win it back though and build again as Holden comes forward...
    • 4' Good work by Sturridge to hold the ball up and win a throw off Neville.
    • 3' Bolton seem to be more intent on creating an early opportunity but Coleman snuffs out an attack...
    • 2' An early corner for Bolton but Taylor's ball is headed well over by Gary Cahill.
    • 1' The first half is underway at the Reebok!
    • 15:55 Odds for today's match are Bolton 17/10, Draw 11/5, Everton 17/10, reflecting the closeness of these teams.
    • 15:50 FACTS: Ivan Klasnic, on the bench today, has scored in both of his Premier League appearances against Everton; Marouane Fellaini, who starts, has scored in two of his three Premier League appearances against Bolton.
    • 15:45 FACTS: Everton are the only team in the Premier League not to win a penalty this season but are the most fouled team in the division, kicked, shoved and tugged 346 times so far.
    • 15:40 FACTS: Bolton have lost none of their 13 Premier League games against teams from the bottom half of the table this season; Bolton have committed more fouls than any other team in the Premier League (357); Stuart Holden has made 103 tackles, more than any other player in the top flight; Daniel Sturridge has scored in both of his league appearances for Bolton.
    • 15:35 EVERTON TEAM NEWS: Louis Saha is injured again so cannot follow up his four-goal haul against Blackpool. Victor Anichebe leads the line instead. The only other change is the expected return of Tim Cahill to the starting XI, although he comes in at the expence of the injured Jack Rodwell. Phil Jagielka is still on the bench after returning from a thigh injury a few weeks back.
    • 15:30 BOLTON TEAM NEWS: A 4-5-1 or a 4-3-3 depending on how you look at it, with Danny Sturridge and Kevin Davies either side of Johan Elmander up front. No change from the 2-1 defeat at Spurs. Jlloyd Samuel (thigh) has returned to training after six months out but is some way short of match fitness while Ricardo Gardner, Joey O'Brien and Sean Davis are also on the sidelines.
