    Time:90'
    • Everton
    • Fulham
    • - Remember, you can watch highlights of this match and all the weekend's Premier League games live on site from Monday (00:01).
    • 90+5 Baines clips the ball in, Fulham clear and the whistle goes. 1-0, not the greatest spectacle in the end.
    • 90+4 Manolev has had a poor game and he is booked for a foul on Baines. Late free-kick on Everton's left wing...
    • 90+3 Everton with long spells of possession now, working the corners as they look to close this out.
    • 90+2 Annoying news for Everton - Spurs have scored a late equaliser at Wigan (no points for guessing who).
    • 90+1 Barkley on the ball, he beats one man, then another, he's in on goal and must score but tipped away by Schwarzer! Would have been some way to open his account!
    • 90' Four minutes added time being played.
    • 89' Ruiz lofts one into the box but Jagielka heads clear. Now Anichebe flicks it to Barkley, who releases Mirallas but the Belgian is offside.
    • 88' ... But a poor delivery from Duff is headed out for a throw by Osman. Manolev with a cross, Hangeland attacks Howard who punches clear, back in and Rodallega gets a touch but Everton clear.
    • 87' Petric will take this... Straight into the wall. Poor. But he picks up the loose ball and wins a free-kick on the right, off Mirallas. Probably of more use for Fulham right now, Hangeland getting up there...
    • 86' Schwarzer and then Emanuelson play it out of trouble, the Dutchman - who is playing left-back now - cutting inside and running deep into Everton's half before he is chopped down by Osman.
    • 85' TERRIBLE MISS FELLAINI! Open goal after a wicked Baines cross bypassed keeper and Emanuelson, but the Belgian thumps it into the ground and over from close range. Bad miss.
    • 83' Enoh is down injured now - Fulham have used all their subs! He collided with Pienaar.
    • 82' Everton with another attack but Fulham have everyone behind the ball.
    • 80' The corner lands for Fellaini who diverts it towards goal, Osman turns it forward and Anichebe tries to flick it over Schwarzer but sends it clear of the bar!
    • 79' Pienaar wide to Mirallas, great run past Manolev but the cut-back from the byline is cleared by Hangeland. Baines then wins a corner. Can sense a second goal coming now...
    • 78' FULHAM SUB: Rodallega on for Karagounis.
    • 77' More fine build-up play but it culminates in a scuffed shot from Barkley.
    • 76' GREAT SAVE SCHWARZER! Great approach play Everton again and Mirallas hammered a drive on goal but the keeper tipped it away in style!
    • 75' Baines with a free-kick on the left now but Senderos clears. Manolev then clips Pienaar and there's another set piece.
    • 74' Mirallas goes down in the Fulham box as Manolev clears but only he appeals for a penalty and the ref turns away.
    • 73' A second corner as Mirallas's initial effort is scrambled behind by Enoh. Short this time but Fulham can clear.
    • 72' Baines's free-kick is punched away but only to OSMAN but his half-volley is headed over by Hangeland.
    • 71' Emanuelson chops Coleman down just outside the Fulham box and the referee books the Dutchman.
    • 70' Manolev again gives it away. Not been overly impressed with him today.
    • 69' Possession has narrowed to 53-47%, showing just how much Everton have eased off this second half.
    • 68' Karagounis is angry after being caught by a high boot from Barkley. The ref deemed both had their feet up and he has a point.
    • 67' Mirallas turns into space, knocking it wide to Baines whose low cross is cleared.
    • 66' EVERTON SUB: Jelavic has again been disappointing and he is replaced by young Ross Barkley.
    • 65' Jelavic with a cross from the right that is blocked by Emanuelson but lands for a throw.
    • 64' Clever run and cross from Duff but Distin shows great speed to reach it with a deft defensive header.
    • 63' Sloppy from Coleman to give it away and Fulham continue their best spell of possession so far.
    • 62' Everton are starting to sit back a touch now. Fulham could snatch something here.
    • 61' Clumsy from Osman on Kacaniklic, and the England midfielder is lucky not to enter the book.
    • 60' Great save from Howard off Duff but the Irishman was offside on Ruiz's pass. Well off actually.
    • 59' Everton now have a corner on the right but there is a lot of jostling between Jelavic and Manolev... The referee ignores it, Baines's ball flies towards the six-yard box and Jagielka flicks it just wide!
    • 58' Baines swings in the free-kick but Ruiz - who has done little so far today - loops a header clear.
    • 57' Everton now have a free-kick on the right, won by Coleman. Baines to take...
    • 56' FULHAM SUB: That's the end of Richardson's game and Duff replaces him.
    • 55' Richardson goes down and needs treatment to a leg injury.
    • 54' Much better from Fulham as Emmanuelson drives an effort wide after fine play by Kacaniklic on the left.
    • 52' Coleman on the right trades passes with Pienaar, with the Irishman overhitting his cross for a goal kick.
    • 51' Fulham now have a free-kick on the left, which Karagounis will take. Hangeland and Senderos get up for it but Jelavic clears.
    • 50' Mirallas to take this corner from the left... headed clear at the near post.
    • 49' Everton on the charge now ans Jelavic cuts inside from the left after a great touch but he overplays it and Fulham clear. Mirallas again finds Jelavic though and Senderos has to slide in to concede a corner.
    • 48' Terrible Karagounis corner sails out for a goal kick.
    • 47' Error from Distin as he leaves a ball for Jagielka, who is beaten for pace by Petric, but Distin recovers to concede a corner.
    • 46' The second half is underway!
    • 45+1 As Anichebe fires a weak shot at Schwarzer, the ref blows for half-time and Everton lead 1-0 after a pretty dominant performance against a Fulham side robbed of Dimitar Berbatov through injury.
    • 45' One minute added time is being played.
    • 44' That was a great chance - the replay shows Petric was only an inch or two away from converting. The taller Berbatov may well have done so.
    • 43' Richardson gets in down the left after good play by Kacaniklic, a fine low cross completely leaves the defence and Howard for dead but a stretching Petric can't get there! So close!
    • 42' A Fulham attack breaks down with Kacaniklic caught offside on the left wing.
    • 41' Baines again leaves Manolev for dead, he picks out FELLAINI but the finish is blocked by his own player Anichebe!
    • 40' Anichebe flicks the ball around Hangeland to race away but Richardson catches up with him to clear for a throw.
    • 39' Senderos catches Coleman after Everton resist the corner and follow-up attack, but he's not booked for it, just spoken to.
    • 38' Jagielka gives the ball away with a shocking pass across the face of goal! Kacaniklic is in on the left but his drive is tipped behind by Howard! Corner.
    • 38' Jelavic is onside as he gets in behind the Fulham defence but, from the right, he tries to shoot instead of find Anichebe and ends up dragging his effort well wide.
    • 37' Baines finds Osman in a lot of space but his pass aimed for Jelavic is casual and poor and Fulham clear.
    • 36' Terrible play from Manolev, who was the recipient of an excellent pass by Schwarzer but ran straight down the right into three Everton players. Then Fellaini is able to get a shot on goal after some lovely one-touch play by Jelavic and Pienaar, but he sends the low effort across the face of the area and wide of the far post.
    • 35' Distin is quite fortunate to win a free-kick off Petric. Fulham get the ball back but a superbly-timed tackle from Jagielka retrieves it for Everton.
    • 34' Fellaini sets off a touch too early as the ball comes in for him. Offside and a Fulham free-kick.
    • 33' Baines launches the ball into the box but Anichibe's shot is wild and off target.
    • 32' Senderos does well to prevent a corner, whacking it to touch for a throw. He then makes another intervention, a somewhat agricultural but effective clearance from Anichebe.
    • 31' Everton free-kick 27 yards out, a touch to the left but basically central. Mirallas and Baines over it, Mirallas takes and it hits the wall to spin away for a throw.
    • 30' FULHAM SUB: Berbatov hobbles off after half an hour. Not sure how he picked up that injury, perhaps when stretching into that high ball earlier? Petric on.
    • 29' ... But it culminates in a Kacaniklic cross that Everton clear. Meanwhile Everton counter and Enoh is booked for stopping Pienaar in full flight.
    • 28' Having said that Fulham hold on to the ball for around a minute as a more promising spell develops...
    • 27' Everton have had 60% possession according to our stats although I would say it's more than that by now.
    • 26' Jelavic almost gets in behind Fulham's defence but his mis-hit lob isn't troubling Schwarzer and indeed Senderos is able to head it back to the keeper.
    • 25' Kacaniklic threads a fine pass to Berbatov cutting inside from the left but the Bulgarian had strayed offside.
    • 24' Fulham have shown little to imply that they will do anything other than lose a 20th straight league match at Goodison. A real bogey ground for a side little short of woeful away from home.
    • 23' Jelavic picks out Anichebe, whose header lands well wide of the far post.
    • 22' Osman lofts a high ball for Coleman, who is very advanced on the right, but it's too strong a pass and out for a goal kick.
    • 21' Anichebe with a good turn on the left and he feeds Jelavic who has the better of Senderos but mis-kicks the finish!
    • 20' Great cross Baines but a sliding Jelavic just fails to connect! Mirallas picks it up and he starts a short-passing move from deep... But it goes back to Howard. Everton can afford to be patient.
    • 19' Kacaniklic could be in for Fulham but good defending by Distin and Jagielka to shut him out.
    • 18' Everton launch into another attack but Senderos cuts out Osman's through-ball for Anichebe. Vital touch.
    • 17' Fulham try to bite back immediately but Everton clear their lines.
    • 16' The replays knocking about don't do the goal justice - you need to see it from the start just inside the Fulham half. Deserved as they have dominated.
    • 15' FANTASTIC GOAL EVERTON! A wonderful team strike from the hosts, one-touch and flicks all the way until Coleman cuts back a low cross for Pienaar to roll the finish home.
    • 14' Mirallas is offside as he blasts a rising drive over via the palm of Schwarzer, but it was a nice move by Everton.
    • 13' Baines strides forward, finding Jelavic wide left but Manolev closes him down and wins a throw off the Croat.
    • 12' Kacaniklic gets hold of the ball for the first time but is tackled by Coleman. Mirallas gives away a free-kick by fouling Karagounis.
    • 11' Manolev is skinned by Pienaar but his low pass is not controlled by Anichebe. Back with Pienaar but this time Manolev is wise to him and concedes a throw.
    • 10' Fellaini with a rather hefty barge on Manolev, who brushes it off but wins a free-kick.
    • 9' A long ball almost sends Berbatov through but he just fails to connect with that long leg.
    • 8' Fulham have a throw deep in Everton territory, their first real move in that direction.
    • 7' Coleman plays a low ball down the right but Mirallas is unable to do anything with it and Fulham have a goal kick.
    • 6' Enoh's lofted ball lands well clear of Berbatov, who I think had strayed offside anyway.
    • 5' Baines to take an Everton free-kick from the right that Schwarzer punches away unconvincingly but Hangeland is there to hoof clear.
    • 4' Senderos again puts in a block but this time it's a corner. Swung in by Mirallas and Fellaini rises with a downward header but Schwarzer blocks and Fulham clear!!
    • 3' Jelavic puts ex-Toffee Senderos under pressure but the Swiss defender manages to hook the ball out for a throw.
    • 2' A wild effort from Anichebe lands high and wide after some promising interplay with Jelavic.
    • 1' The first half is underway!
    • 14:55 MATCH ODDS: Everton 1/2, Fulham 7/1, draw 10/3
    • 14:50 FACTS: Fulham have failed to score in three of their last four league games. Fulham have recovered fewer points than any other team in the top flight from losing positions this season (5).
    • 14:45 FACTS: Everton have won the last 19 league games in a row on home soil against Fulham. The Toffees are unbeaten in their last seven matches in all competitions against the Whites (W5 D2 L0). Marouane Fellaini has scored four goals in his last three appearances in all competitions against Fulham.
    • 14:40 Fulham welcome back Damien Duff from injury, but he starts on the bench with Alexander Kacaniklic - who was recalled from his loan at Burnley following an injury to Askhan Dejagah - starting on the wing. Stanislas Manolev starts at right-back with Sascha Riether out with an ankle injury. Steve Sidwell starts his four-match ban so Eyong Enoh starts in midfield.
    • 14:35 Victor Anichebe recovers from a knock to start for Everton as David Moyes goes with two strikers today as Nikica Jelavic starts too. Darron Gibson does not make it after he suffered an injury, but Leon Osman starts with Ross Barkley on the bench, disappointing for those like me wishing to take another look at the exciting youngster.
    • 14:30 TEAMS - Everton: Howard, Baines, Jagielka, Distin, Coleman, Osman, Fellaini, Mirallas, Pienaar, Anichebe, Jelavic; Subs: Mucha, Hibbert, Heitinga, Oviedo, Naismith, Barkley, Duffy /// Fulham: Schwarzer, Manolev, Senderos, Hangeland, Richardson, Emanuelson, Karagounis, Enoh, Kacaniklic, Ruiz, Berbatov; Subs: Etheridge, Hughes, Frimpong, Duff, Frei, Rodallega, Petric
    • 14:25 Martin Jol: "We would like to have £25m to spend on a 23-year-old but we can't. You have to be creative and that is good in the short term. But in the longer term it is not what you want. Of course, I know a lot of players who could do well but structurally for the long term it is not ideal. I would love to decrease the amount of loan players in the future."
    • 14:20 David Moyes: “We know we’ve dropped a few points at places you maybe wouldn’t expect but then we’ve beaten Man City and United at home. I wonder come the end if people will say Everton have roughly finished where most people would have put them. If anybody thought we should have finished fourth they would need to really justify the argument why because I would find it hard to see their reasons for that.”
