West Ham 1 Everton 1
West Ham started with Faubert and Ilunga in as full backs and Obinna in for Cole.
West Ham started a little slowly but worked hard at closing down space and gradual worked their way into the game. Their hard work was rewarded in the 16th minute when Kovac tried an overhead shot from 10 yards and Hibbert deflected the ball into the back of his own net.
West Ham then had a couple of opportunities to extend their lead. In the 20th minute Obinna cut in from the right and fired a shot into the side of the net. In the 26th minute Upson headed well over from 8 yards.
In the 23rd minute Ilunga was forced off and Spector came on to replace him at left back. In the 43nd minute Everton got the equaliser when a cross from the left wing found Coleman completely unmarked at the far post to shoot home from 5 yards.
In the 43rd minute Upson headed wide from 10 yards. Two minutes after that Parker tried to chip Howard from 18 yards only to see his shot drop onto the top of the net. In the 46th minute Coleman had a good opportunity to grab his second but shot well wide from 13 yards.
Everton dominated the second half early on. In the 51st minute Pienaar shot over from just inside the area. In the 56th minute Rodwell fired wide from 23 yards. In the 56th minute Cole replaced a limping Piquionne.
In the 70th minute a great run from Sears down the right and a good cross across the area found Cole unmarked but Cole scuffed his shot wide from 12 yards. That chance seemed to spur West Ham into action and in the 72nd minute Tomkins headed over from 7 yards.
In the 74th minute Obinna fired a 25 yard freekick straight into the wall. However apart from that little five minute spell it was Everton who looked the more likely to score. Their best chance fell to Cahill whose shot from 10 yards was easily saved by Green.
In the end a draw was probably a fair result. West Ham pick up another point but appear to have lost Ilunga for a while, and Piquionne looked to be carrying some sort of injury when he limped off.
