Follow all the action live as Everton look to continue their impressive start to the Premier League season when they take on former boss David Moyes’ West Ham United.

Rafael Benítez’s arrival as manager may have been met with, at best, a mixed response from supporters over the summer but the Spaniard’s are working so far, with his side sitting in sixth with 14 points from their opening seven fixtures. New arrivals Demarai Gray and Andros Townsend, who have scored three league goals each since the start of the campaign, have been key to their strong early showings.

West Ham haven’t been too shabby either, though, and are currently three points behind the Toffees in tenth. They did lose last time out against Brentford, but that followed two impressive away victories over Leeds United and Manchester United the EFL Cup. Michail Antonio has scored five goals and assisted three in just six appearances, and is available for selection after missing the international break with Jamaica for logistical reasons. The Hammers have only won of their last seven fixtures against Everton, but their impressive away means the home side can take nothing for granted this afternoon.

Everton 0 – 0 West Ham

22 mins: Soucek weaves his way into the left side of the Everton box and flicks a cross over towards Antonio. Pickford comes out to punch the ball clear but Bowen takes it under control. He brings it back into the danger area and passes it into Fornals who shoots of the spin only for his effort to get blocked by Ben Godfrey.

20 mins: Everton put together another attack working the ball down the left side. A cross into the box from Digne is cleared as far as Doucoure who runs onto the chance and drills an effort from range over the crossbar. That one got the Everton fans excited for a few seconds.

18 mins: Finally, a bit of gusto from Everton. Coleman intercepts a pass from Fornals and sends his team forward on the counter-attack. Soloman Rondon receives the ball and works out wide for Andros Townsend. He cuts inside onto his left-foot and sweeps a cross towards the back post where the ball just evades Alex Iwobi.

Everton 0 – 0 West Ham

15 mins: West Ham have been the more attacking side over the opening 15 minutes. They’ve spent a fair bit of time operating around the Everton penalty area but haven’t been able to effectively penetrate Everton’s defence. Abdoulaye Doucoure loses the ball on the edge of his own box and gets lucky as Benrahma scuffs a cross straight out of play.

12 mins: Said Benrahma has the first sight on goal with a long-ranged effort that he leans back on and boots high over the goal. Keane and Antonio tussle over a 50/50 ball with the West Ham forward getting the better of it and winning a free kick.

9 mins: Michail Antonio is shown a yellow card for diving! He receives the ball inside the final third and turns well, driving the ball towards the box. Michael Keane comes out to tackle him but pulls out of the challenge at the last minute and Antonio goes down on the edge of the box. Good decision from the referee as Keane didn’t touch him.

6 mins: Ben Johnson is forward for West Ham and looks to send a cross into the penalty area from the right. He’s hounded by Allan and the ball comes loose. Bowen is backing him up though and he takes over, firing across a low pass into the box for Benrahma. Returning defender Seamus Coleman nips in front of the midfielder and clears the danger for Everton.

3 mins: West Ham have started sharply. Aaron Cresswell goes on an enterprising run down the left wing and fires across a tantalising pass into the six-yard box. Michail Antonio makes a run through the lines but can’t reach the ball at the back post and it goes out of play.

Everton 0 – 0 West Ham

Kick off: West Ham get the ball rolling and send it long over to the right side of the pitch. Lucas Digne brings the ball under control and knocks it back to Jordan Pickford. Pickford sends the ball back to Digne who’s drifted wider on Everton’s left side but he loses possession to a high press from Jarrod Bowen. Bowen links up with Tomas Soucek to get the ball into the area but can’t control the return pass and the rolls behind for a goalkick.

Here come the teams

The players make their way out onto the pitch at Goodison Park. This should be a good contest. West Ham are unbeaten on the road for six months but Everton have been brilliant at home this season.

Demarai Gray and Andros Townsend are in good form so too are Said Benrahma and Michail Antonio. This one could go either way.
