COMMENTATOR: Just brilliant, just brilliant!

:00:18.:00:20.

COMMENTATOR: What a turn, what a goal!

:00:21.:00:29.

COMMENTATOR: Look at that. Oh, look at that!

:00:30.:00:44.

Hello, a double header for you tonight.

:00:45.:00:46.

First up, three crucial Premier League matches

:00:47.:00:49.

followed by highlights from this season's first two FA

:00:50.:00:50.

Every match watched in the company of Martin Keown and Trevor Sinclair.

:00:51.:00:55.

Bournemouth's feisty draw at Old Trafford last Saturday

:00:56.:00:57.

was the first point picked up by Eddie Howe's side in five games

:00:58.:01:00.

and they looked to build on that against West Ham.

:01:01.:01:03.

Your commentator on the South Coast, John Motson.

:01:04.:01:09.

COMMENTATOR: If it's goals you want to see, this fixture looks a good

:01:10.:01:15.

bet on paper. Bournemouth have conceded 36 in their last 15 games,

:01:16.:01:19.

they haven't kept a clean sheet in their last eight and neither have

:01:20.:01:25.

West Ham in their last six. Suspensions for Tyrone Mings Andrade

:01:26.:01:29.

rue Surman, following events at Old Trafford, mean that Simon Francis

:01:30.:01:35.

returns after injury and Dan Gosling comes into the Bournemouth midfield.

:01:36.:01:40.

Michail Antonio is back from suspension, Andy Carroll is on 49

:01:41.:01:48.

Premier League goals and ?20 million Ayew is on the bench. What price

:01:49.:01:56.

loyalty. Mark Noble plays his 398 match today. He has been criticised

:01:57.:01:59.

by supporters this week on social media. This is a key game for

:02:00.:02:07.

Bournemouth. They defended well at Manchester United, they got a point.

:02:08.:02:10.

But they really need three from home games now. Gosling. Here's Daniels.

:02:11.:02:22.

Oh, Gosling is going to put Daniels in here. And that's a penalty

:02:23.:02:31.

against Feghouli. Bobby madly in no doubt at all. An arm went in there

:02:32.:02:36.

somewhere. It floored Daniels. He's pulled him back by the left

:02:37.:02:41.

shoulder. Important moment for Bournemouth in the ninth minute. Oh,

:02:42.:02:53.

he's put it wide. After scoring two in two. Josh King misses number

:02:54.:03:01.

three. That could be a blow for Bournemouth, we shall see.

:03:02.:03:04.

Bournemouth haven't had the best record against West Ham. They beat

:03:05.:03:09.

them 4-3 at Upton Park early last season, but then they lost here,

:03:10.:03:13.

3-1, they also lost at West Ham in August. Oh, here's Feghouli, the man

:03:14.:03:20.

who gave the penalty away. Oh, that's a good turn, and West Ham

:03:21.:03:25.

have taken the lead within seconds of Bournemouth missing a penalty.

:03:26.:03:29.

How on earth did Bournemouth lose their concentration like that? A

:03:30.:03:34.

penalty was missed, West Ham attacked. The Bournemouth defence

:03:35.:03:38.

crumbled. Feghouli was the man here who had given away the penalty. He

:03:39.:03:42.

made the opening here for Antonio. That turn and that left foot shot is

:03:43.:03:46.

everything they missed when he was suspended. Bournemouth could have

:03:47.:03:50.

gone ahead with the penalty, but it's West Ham who go-ahead after 10

:03:51.:03:56.

minutes through Michail Antonio. Startling opening to this game. It's

:03:57.:04:04.

a decent ball. It's Feghouli here. Daniel steps in, not far enough.

:04:05.:04:09.

That's Antonio, again. Feghouli made the goal for him earlier on. Here,

:04:10.:04:18.

Antonio stretching Boruc, just wide. Arter.

:04:19.:04:26.

Now it's Fraser. Thats with a good effort, and it brought Darren

:04:27.:04:33.

Randolph down to his right. Ryan Fraser here gets a chance to try

:04:34.:04:37.

himself. Randolph needed to get good hand on that. Corner to Bournemouth.

:04:38.:04:46.

They played it short to Arter. Now again it's Fraser. Good chip over.

:04:47.:04:52.

Steve Cook was in there for Bournemouth. Darren Randolph

:04:53.:04:58.

responds again. Scored a couple of useful goals this season against

:04:59.:05:03.

Bournemouth, one against Liverpool here. Goalkeeper had to be sharp.

:05:04.:05:04.

Charlie Daniels. Just in case anybody is wandering

:05:05.:05:13.

about Jack Wilshere, he's on the bench again today for Bournemouth.

:05:14.:05:19.

More invention in the midfield, he might be important later on. For the

:05:20.:05:24.

moment it's the direct route. Oh, Afobe was coming in on the near-post

:05:25.:05:30.

there. Gosling wins it back to Fraser. Played into Afobe. This is

:05:31.:05:38.

Josh King. Josh King has equalised and made up for his penalty miss

:05:39.:05:42.

with 31 minutes gone. Bournemouth are level. A lovely little flick up

:05:43.:05:47.

and then a left foot shot as the ball came down. Look at that from

:05:48.:05:52.

King. Good skill. It's Bournemouth 1, West Ham 1. An astute piece of

:05:53.:06:00.

play and a devastating finish. Daniels. Oh, that's a good ball to

:06:01.:06:08.

Pugh. Afobe, far-post. Pugh with his step over. Is that another penalty?

:06:09.:06:13.

It is. That's a familiar little trick of Marc Pugh and it's foiled

:06:14.:06:21.

and fooled Jose Fonte. A second penalty to Bournemouth. Do you

:06:22.:06:25.

change the penalty taker? That's the big question, and they have. Benik

:06:26.:06:35.

Afobe has picked up the ball. Oh, they've missed two! Darren Randolph

:06:36.:06:41.

makes the save from Benik Afobe. Eddie Howe can only stand there and

:06:42.:06:45.

wander - how do you miss two penalties in a home game, in the

:06:46.:06:50.

first half, and still expect to win. Randolph did well. It wasn't the

:06:51.:06:54.

best penalty in the world and neither was the one before it. Now,

:06:55.:07:01.

Antonio has got ahead of Francis. The goalkeeper starts to come. And

:07:02.:07:07.

Boruc does enough to force Antonio to strike that wide. Bournemouth

:07:08.:07:12.

defence caught out there. They were a bit square. Boruc shut the angle

:07:13.:07:14.

down. Carroll, Feghouli. Oh, deflection

:07:15.:07:28.

and a good save by the goalkeeper's feet. Feghouli there, threatening to

:07:29.:07:34.

put West Ham 2-1 up. The goalkeeper's left foot saved

:07:35.:07:38.

Bournemouth. They really do need to start this second-half in a positive

:07:39.:07:51.

frame of mind. Free-kick. West Ham have are pulled everybody back here.

:07:52.:07:56.

Fraser and Daniels on the ball. It's left to Fraser. Afobe's up there.

:07:57.:08:04.

Oh, King. Josh King, was he offside? There's no flag. And Josh King has

:08:05.:08:09.

scored his second. Mark Noble is complaining, I think, about

:08:10.:08:13.

handball. He now has gone across to the assistant referee. This will be

:08:14.:08:17.

a blow for Bournemouth if he changes his mind now. Goal! Josh King who

:08:18.:08:24.

missed that early penalty, he now has his second goal of the game and

:08:25.:08:28.

Bournemouth are back in front. Now then, as the free-kick is taken, the

:08:29.:08:34.

header on there, well, I don't think King is offside. I think, where they

:08:35.:08:40.

are appealing, West Ham, is there. It might have been Afobe. Certainly,

:08:41.:08:45.

in my view, onside King. 2-1, Bournemouth. Good challenge by

:08:46.:08:53.

Gosling. Here are Bournemouth, four against three. Afobe on the ball.

:08:54.:08:58.

King to his left, Gosling down the middle. Oh then it became five in

:08:59.:09:05.

the attack. Here's Fraser. Oh, unlucky. When Pugh joined in there,

:09:06.:09:10.

there were five Bournemouth shirts against three West Ham defenders.

:09:11.:09:14.

Somehow or other it never quite happened. This is Obiang. Cresswell

:09:15.:09:26.

doing a good job in keeping that in. Gosling now has found Arter on the

:09:27.:09:30.

break for Bournemouth. He's got players right and left. Josh King.

:09:31.:09:35.

Afobe is on this side. Here's Afobe. Making room for the shot, is he? He

:09:36.:09:42.

is. Oh, and it might well have been a goal to clinch the game. Darren

:09:43.:09:46.

Randolph, who has had a good afternoon, was right on it. Good

:09:47.:09:51.

effort by Afobe. We are halfway through the second-half here.

:09:52.:09:57.

Bournemouth lead by 2-1. West Ham, by no means finished. Here's

:09:58.:10:03.

Antonio. Nicely set up there by Lanzini. Good skill. Then Antonio

:10:04.:10:07.

an, he doesn't need any back lift at all. There goes Fraser. -- and. He

:10:08.:10:22.

tucks that back to Adam Smith. There is the chip. There's the chance for

:10:23.:10:27.

Afobe. Afobe wasn't challenged when he headed that over the bar. That

:10:28.:10:34.

would surely have clinched it, with 15 minutes to go. Obiang. Here's

:10:35.:10:46.

Ayew. Obiang, again. Oh, and they have allowed him to come through.

:10:47.:10:56.

West Ham get back to 2-2. It's the substitute, Andre Ayew with his

:10:57.:10:58.

second goal for the club. With only eight minutes to go here and the

:10:59.:11:05.

right back, Byram, who came on as a substitute, made that goal.

:11:06.:11:08.

Bournemouth lose the lead again. Was there an offside there? There was no

:11:09.:11:16.

flag. Byram pulled it back. Andy Carroll helped that on. Obiang

:11:17.:11:21.

involved as well. Byram getting down to the line there. Ayew makes it 2-2

:11:22.:11:25.

here. Anything can happen now. It's been that sort of game. This is

:11:26.:11:36.

Ayew. Again, Byram is sprinting down the right hand side, but

:11:37.:11:40.

Bournemouth, with Josh King, looking to break away. And, they have. This

:11:41.:11:50.

is Jack Wilshere. This is Pugh. Wilshere, against the goalkeeper's

:11:51.:11:55.

legs, Josh King. Extraordinary stuff here at Bournemouth. King has

:11:56.:12:00.

completed a hat-trick. Jack Wilshere has come on with an astute pass that

:12:01.:12:05.

may well win the game. Bournemouth back in front. Jason trying to calm

:12:06.:12:13.

them down here and Eddie Howe. Look, don't get carried away. I've seen

:12:14.:12:17.

some finishes on this ground. Jack Wilshere slots the ball in here. And

:12:18.:12:22.

then Josh King with the strike, over the goalkeeper and the flying

:12:23.:12:25.

defender on the line. And Bournemouth lead 3-2. King, despite

:12:26.:12:31.

missing an early penalty, completes a hat-trick. We had a lot thrown at

:12:32.:12:36.

us to miss a penalty and they score second later. It summed up the run

:12:37.:12:43.

we were on. The lads dug deep. When it was 2-2 the game was in the

:12:44.:12:46.

balance. We scored a great winning goal. It was a goal of high quality

:12:47.:12:51.

late in the game. We are disappointed especially when you

:12:52.:12:55.

have so many chances and at the end of the day when you score away two

:12:56.:12:58.

goals you should get something out of the game. Your players were

:12:59.:13:02.

disappointed and spoke to the referee after Bournemouth's second

:13:03.:13:07.

goal. What was their concern? After the second goal they asked for

:13:08.:13:13.

handball. But, to be fair, it wasn't a handball. When they scored the

:13:14.:13:16.

second goal, no, no. It the was a good goal. A Hat-trick is what a

:13:17.:13:23.

striker dreams off in the Premier League? I said to myself I will sco

:13:24.:13:30.

four in the next two games. I need one more. First to get my first

:13:31.:13:34.

Premier League hat-trick and get more. Missed his penalties and taken

:13:35.:13:39.

his three goals well. Had an outstanding season so far. He is

:13:40.:13:42.

showing his true potential. We will talk about Josh King. He is a

:13:43.:13:46.

really, really, you could see, tangible relief from Eddie Howe

:13:47.:13:50.

today in getting that win, the first in 2017. Josh King instrumental in

:13:51.:13:53.

that with his goals. He didn't have the best start? He didn't. He has

:13:54.:13:58.

been typical of how they have been later. He showed great character. It

:13:59.:14:01.

was an awful miss. He didn't even hit the target. You are expecting

:14:02.:14:06.

the guy to step up now this was going to be turning things around.

:14:07.:14:10.

The very start of the match. He does this. It takes an awful lot to

:14:11.:14:15.

recover from that. Fair to play to him. Trevor, after that he was

:14:16.:14:22.

outstanding. Mentally very strong. Ran himself into the Man of the

:14:23.:14:28.

Match performance. He did this tirelessly all afternoon. Missing a

:14:29.:14:31.

penalty can affect players, it can in a good way, for me it did the

:14:32.:14:35.

latter. Here again, into the six-yard box, trying to get on the

:14:36.:14:38.

end of that. Better quality. Could have had a goal there. Again, his

:14:39.:14:42.

workrate. It's not all attacking. He works hard to win the ball back.

:14:43.:14:45.

Shows great agility here. Good desire. This is not about ability,

:14:46.:14:50.

this is about wanting to penetrate and get forward. Fantastic. Seen the

:14:51.:14:55.

foul. Great, positive play. It's out of nothing his goal. Flips it over

:14:56.:14:59.

Fontaine's head whachl a composed finish. Scored seven goals in the

:15:00.:15:04.

last five games. This is why, full of excitement and intelligence

:15:05.:15:07.

around the box. He is offside on the initial ball in. Not offside in the

:15:08.:15:12.

second phase. Alive to that. Picked up, poor defending from West Ham.

:15:13.:15:14.

That is clinical. His left foot, again. He was doing that all

:15:15.:15:19.

afternoon. He was a thorn in the West Ham side. Great awareness.

:15:20.:15:27.

Keeps the ball. Link up play good after afternoon. Drives into the

:15:28.:15:30.

box. Marked there. He will not get sucked into the all the bodies. Sits

:15:31.:15:34.

out. Great awareness. That is with his right foot. Two-footed. The last

:15:35.:15:38.

hat-trick Bournemouth scored was against West Ham that was Callum

:15:39.:15:40.

Wilson. He deserved that. Were you surprised he did not take

:15:41.:15:52.

the second penalty because nine penalties so far this season and

:15:53.:15:56.

these were the only two they had missed all season. It is a tough

:15:57.:16:00.

one. I would not wanted him to step up if he was not happy. He was right

:16:01.:16:06.

to step out of the way. But a phobia, his penalty was bad. If you

:16:07.:16:15.

do not feel I could, sometimes it is the brave man saying I do not want

:16:16.:16:19.

to take it. Slaven Bilic Odyssey thinks it is a hard feeling, that

:16:20.:16:24.

journey home but reasons to be cheerful with Lanzini. He is going

:16:25.:16:28.

to be disappointed, they should be taking points from the game. But for

:16:29.:16:32.

me if there is any player that could take a positive it is Manuel

:16:33.:16:37.

Lanzini, he was outstanding. He has been put in their to fill the boots,

:16:38.:16:45.

not quite there yet but his play all afternoon was brilliant. The most

:16:46.:16:49.

passes out of the team. 33 in the opposition half. Waiting to pass

:16:50.:16:56.

into Antonio, that was superb. Always looking to penetrate, to get

:16:57.:17:01.

forward. Nice simple pass going forward and he has adapted and

:17:02.:17:05.

improved his game. Great upper body strength to win back the ball. Makes

:17:06.:17:10.

the angle. You seem highlighted here, always trying to make angles

:17:11.:17:15.

to get on the ball, taking responsibility. He commits players,

:17:16.:17:20.

forward pass again and gets himself into an area where he can receive

:17:21.:17:26.

the ball again. The touch a bit better there and that could be a

:17:27.:17:30.

goal-scoring opportunity. And a great passing range. Brilliantly

:17:31.:17:35.

lofted ball into Andy Carroll. Suggestion of handball would have

:17:36.:17:40.

been harsh. If he can do a bit better and be more clinical he will

:17:41.:17:44.

be fantastic. Going back to Bournemouth and Eddie Howe, this

:17:45.:17:48.

could be the pivotal week in the season. The week they had with

:17:49.:17:52.

Tyrone Mings, it felt like relief from Eddie Howe to get that first

:17:53.:17:59.

win of 2017. It is always a joy to watch his team's play, you see how

:18:00.:18:03.

united everyone is. Hopefully this will galvanise them going forward.

:18:04.:18:08.

He was clever to put Jack Wilshire on at the end. The impact he made

:18:09.:18:12.

when he came on. He could have started him but did not and now

:18:13.:18:16.

going in the right direction again. But a big game coming up against

:18:17.:18:17.

Swansea. If Bournemouth's win was crucial

:18:18.:18:19.

in their fight to avoid getting dragged into a relegation scrap,

:18:20.:18:22.

Hull and Swansea are already in one. Both teams started the day

:18:23.:18:24.

in the bottom five of the table, but both have benefited

:18:25.:18:27.

from a recent change of manager. Swansea, there transformation

:18:28.:18:43.

continues under Paul Clement. From desperation to optimism at the foot

:18:44.:18:48.

of the Premier League. Marco Silva has three precious points. Just

:18:49.:18:53.

maybe the greatest game is on. New manager, new signings, new feel

:18:54.:19:03.

about the KCOM. Your commentator at the KCOM, Alistair man.

:19:04.:19:06.

Two changes for a game that feels like a must win for Hull City. Abdul

:19:07.:19:20.

Hernandez leads the line. Angel Rangel and Wayne Routledge commenced

:19:21.:19:28.

for the visitors. Llorente has been in imperious form and is seeking to

:19:29.:19:32.

score for a third successive match, something he never managed at

:19:33.:19:37.

Juventus. Hull City looking for positive omens, they have already

:19:38.:19:42.

beaten Swansea in the league in August. And in the FA Cup in

:19:43.:19:51.

January. A terrific drop from Jakupovic. Lovely play from Swansea.

:19:52.:19:58.

Routledge is in and a good stop from the goalkeeper.

:19:59.:20:07.

Quite routine in terms of what Fabianski has had to do so far. The

:20:08.:20:16.

referee says Hull City can play on. Here is Grosicki. Still off target.

:20:17.:20:27.

Throughout that passage of play Fernando Llorente has stay down. The

:20:28.:20:31.

way he was clutching his bike, you wonder if it could be dead leg. I'm

:20:32.:20:37.

thinking it is. I think the impact, the knee onto the thigh from

:20:38.:20:44.

Huddlestone. Anyone who has suffered from a dead leg will know how

:20:45.:20:49.

debilitating that is. Perhaps Fernando Llorente will have to make

:20:50.:20:56.

way. It is a difficult injury to run off. I'm not sure that was a good

:20:57.:21:05.

idea to play into the path of the man who cannot run. Fernando

:21:06.:21:14.

Llorente does not thank him for it. New managers were meant to bring a

:21:15.:21:18.

positive response from the players. You could argue that although one

:21:19.:21:31.

has gathered more points than the other, they have both had a positive

:21:32.:21:37.

effect on their squad. The grass is decent and great goalkeeping! Really

:21:38.:21:41.

brave from Fabianski and I think wind at himself in the process.

:21:42.:21:46.

Trying to get to his feet. People helping out here, Fabianski. Really

:21:47.:21:51.

brave piece of goalkeeping. One of those as a goalkeeper for you just

:21:52.:21:55.

know you're going to get clobbered. And Fabianski puts his body on the

:21:56.:22:00.

line to get it away from Abdul Hernandez and he gets clobbered.

:22:01.:22:12.

It has has been a costly half for Swansea so far. Angel Rangel oft

:22:13.:22:16.

injured and now Fernando Llorente. On in his stead comes Jordan Ayew.

:22:17.:22:27.

These sites have conceded some 55 goals between them in the final 30

:22:28.:22:30.

minutes of Premier League matches this season. Kept alive by

:22:31.:22:45.

Sigurdsson. Andy Carroll. It comes towards the advancing Wayne

:22:46.:22:47.

Routledge who really ought to have done better. That was a plastic

:22:48.:22:50.

opportunity especially in the context of the game with so very few

:22:51.:22:55.

clear-cut openings. The crowd of just over 19,000, around 400 made

:22:56.:23:06.

the journey from Swansea. There is Sigurdsson for Swansea. Huddlestone

:23:07.:23:18.

protesting the innocence of his team-mate. Sigurdsson giving out the

:23:19.:23:28.

signals. Then going for glory! It was a scramble across his line by

:23:29.:23:34.

Jakupovic. I get the feeling it would have clipped the post but as a

:23:35.:23:37.

goalkeeper you do not want to take that chance. And Jakupovic did not.

:23:38.:23:54.

N'Diaye the player making way. On comes the essay. Taking a position

:23:55.:24:06.

alongside Abel Hernandez. The goalkeeper misses it. Clucas could

:24:07.:24:15.

not take it in his stride. Still not away yet. Another cross from a Hull

:24:16.:24:23.

City player eludes everyone and Sigurdsson gets underway. There did

:24:24.:24:26.

seem a moment when Fabianski came charging out. In terms of

:24:27.:24:32.

inspiration and players that make things happen, Dean Windass in the

:24:33.:24:37.

centre it certainly did it for many years for Hull City. An ambassador

:24:38.:24:40.

these days for the club. Niasse looking for the return. On

:24:41.:25:02.

site as well and he scores! Where did that come from! He does not

:25:03.:25:09.

care. The man he brought on to partner Abel Hernandez in the second

:25:10.:25:13.

half has duly obliged with a goal that could mean so much to his team.

:25:14.:25:19.

It has been quiet in this second half but the stadium erupts. Niasse

:25:20.:25:30.

slipped it underneath Fabianski. The last time he was on target was

:25:31.:25:33.

against Liverpool and they were the winners 2- nil. That was an

:25:34.:25:37.

important result. He might have provided Hull City with another

:25:38.:25:41.

vital three points. They needed to win this game today. In that moment

:25:42.:25:50.

might he have that victory? Some managers reach to a notepad and jot

:25:51.:25:54.

something down but others go absolutely ballistic. Here is

:25:55.:26:11.

Elmohamady. Through two Niasse! That is surely game one. He think so. He

:26:12.:26:19.

was surplus to Everton requirements. But he is essential to Hull City. A

:26:20.:26:25.

good finish as well. Nothing simple about it. He made it look so. Niasse

:26:26.:26:33.

may well have finished off the Swansea for the day. 2- nil.

:26:34.:26:45.

Niasse, a good ball. He has found him, Niasse. Really only two of

:26:46.:27:08.

them. No one else had joined in. Grosicki and Niasse combined, not

:27:09.:27:14.

too far off the target. Jordan Ayew, fouled. They will be

:27:15.:27:23.

counting the cost of the defeat and counting the cost of those who came

:27:24.:27:28.

off injured today. Delivered by Sigurdsson. Alfie Mawson is free.

:27:29.:27:37.

And to subdued cheers and a sharp intake of breath from the Hull City

:27:38.:27:44.

supporters, it goes in for Alfie Mawson, nothing more than a

:27:45.:27:47.

statistic on an afternoon that has belonged to Hull City. Into the

:27:48.:27:53.

corner of the net but nothing more than a scare. Hull City on a day

:27:54.:27:59.

when they just had to win, have done exactly that. A huge victory this

:28:00.:28:07.

for Hull City. 2-1. Congratulations Marco, how big a win is that for

:28:08.:28:12.

Hull City? Really important. We got three important points. We did our

:28:13.:28:18.

obligation to win at home one game against Swansea. A tough day for us.

:28:19.:28:28.

The first half, we improved in the second half and had better control

:28:29.:28:35.

the game. We took a risk with the two strikers and it caused problems

:28:36.:28:41.

for them. Injuries in the first half have hurt us. The players who came

:28:42.:28:45.

on our good players but then in the second you're limited to what you

:28:46.:28:49.

can do. Going into this game I did not think we anywhere near safe. We

:28:50.:28:55.

have a lot to do and we're not anywhere near safe still. Ten games

:28:56.:28:59.

to go and we have got to be starting to play well again. And bounce back

:29:00.:29:05.

next week against Bournemouth. Martin, you struggled a bit with

:29:06.:29:12.

this match. The whole match then changed. It was down to the manager,

:29:13.:29:18.

Michael Silva just change the formation. Niasse came on and made

:29:19.:29:23.

the complete difference. Charging through midfield. Two players at the

:29:24.:29:27.

top of the team and just give and go. You attack the space, lovely

:29:28.:29:31.

ball into him and he came on with a point to prove. And he has proved

:29:32.:29:37.

it. Maybe powerful. Again thinking OK, I like this, I will stay down

:29:38.:29:41.

the middle. Again looking for that, he gets lucky. And Niasse just put

:29:42.:29:46.

it away. That just changed the game. With Llorente, the opposite

:29:47.:29:57.

situation with Swansea. He's injured today, just before half-time. They

:29:58.:30:02.

have got no vocal point. They struggled. All the good work came to

:30:03.:30:07.

nothing? Llorente scored three goals in the last two games. Balls come

:30:08.:30:11.

into the box he had been feeding off. The team didn't realise he'd

:30:12.:30:15.

gone off. They played in almost exactly the same well. This is sort

:30:16.:30:19.

of ball Llorente would have loved coming in here. It goes over the top

:30:20.:30:24.

of Ayew's head. He didn't seem to be able to hold on to the ball for them

:30:25.:30:28.

today. He was disappointing. That is what he has to do. Build that

:30:29.:30:33.

platform. Loses possession. Then, suddenly, you can't get Sigurdsson

:30:34.:30:36.

on the ball. You can't be effective in the final third. I think the DNA

:30:37.:30:42.

of Swansea is - get the ball down, pass it around, have possession,

:30:43.:30:45.

then get the ball into wide areas and Llorente will feed off that. It

:30:46.:30:50.

affected the vocal point. It unbalanced the side. Hull got

:30:51.:30:53.

confidence. Silva made the changes and went on to win the game. Three

:30:54.:30:59.

out of four Premier League home wins since he arrived as well. OK.

:31:00.:31:01.

Everton's defeat to Spurs last weekend might have

:31:02.:31:03.

ended their nine-game unbeaten run, but there is still belief a top six

:31:04.:31:06.

They took on West Brom, who are striving to hit

:31:07.:31:10.

their Premier League record points total.

:31:11.:31:11.

COMMENTATOR: There's no stopping Everton or Romelu Lukaku at Goodison

:31:12.:31:20.

right now. The team have rattled in 15 goals in four consecutive

:31:21.:31:24.

victories here. The Belgian has scored in each of them and has 18

:31:25.:31:27.

for the season, matching his best ever tally in the Premier League. In

:31:28.:31:34.

sharp contrast, Kanu has one to his name. That was the first start for

:31:35.:31:40.

Albion. This is only his second. His goal came at Southampton on New

:31:41.:31:44.

Year's Eve. West Brom's last away win. Strikers the pre-match talk in

:31:45.:31:51.

more ways than one this afternoon. Everton remember a giant from the

:31:52.:31:56.

past, the golden vision, Alex Young, whose funeral it was today. A league

:31:57.:32:02.

and FA Cup winner and scorer of 87 goals in the blue shirt.

:32:03.:32:07.

Barkley. That will drop for Davies. Still Davies. Davies. Now, Jagielka.

:32:08.:32:20.

Struck his own player, Ashley Williams in the way. Coleman to

:32:21.:32:26.

collect the pieces. Never scared to have a little dribble. What a cross.

:32:27.:32:31.

Missed at the near-post by McAuley and turned behind at the far-post by

:32:32.:32:37.

Nyom. This is the right-back with the left-wing dribble. Quality

:32:38.:32:46.

cross. Tony Pulis' 300th match as a Premier League manager. He's never

:32:47.:32:51.

finished in the Top 10. Very much on course for that come May. Barry.

:32:52.:33:03.

Schneiderlin. Barkley, Barry, into Lukaku. Sight of goal. Just wide of

:33:04.:33:10.

goal. Clever interchange here from Everton. It was quick, it was

:33:11.:33:15.

accurate, it released Lukaku, on his weaker right side, but he's only a

:33:16.:33:18.

fraction away from giving Everton an early lead here. Nyom.

:33:19.:33:29.

Robson-Kanu. Looking to get beyond Coleman. It won't read Chadli. Barry

:33:30.:33:39.

is there. Davies' first touch was heavy. Evans, Nyom. Still forward

:33:40.:33:48.

from launching the earlier raid. Neat backheel from Robson-Kanu. .Y

:33:49.:33:53.

was strong up against Chadli. Had to be careful in there as well not to

:33:54.:33:58.

bring the Belgian down. Good back-tracking from Barry. Best move

:33:59.:34:03.

that they have produced so far. Kevin Mirallas. Lukaku, lovely

:34:04.:34:11.

touch. Tom Davies. It's off Dawson and behind for another corner.

:34:12.:34:16.

Davies perhaps had more time than he appreciated there. The flip there

:34:17.:34:22.

from Lukaku. Davies decided to hammer the cross early. Mirallas

:34:23.:34:29.

pulling it back here to Baines. He's got away from Chadli all too easily.

:34:30.:34:35.

In towards Lukaku! Wide of the other post this time. Another shake of the

:34:36.:34:40.

head. He feels he should have done better here, Baines. M Ronald Koeman

:34:41.:34:45.

has certainly got the smiles back on the faces of the Goodison faithful.

:34:46.:34:55.

A fortress here this season, one defeat here o. Dawson in no rush.

:34:56.:35:03.

He's found Chadli. Good shot from him. Turned behind. Taking no risks

:35:04.:35:11.

at all. It was heading home. McAuley. Now Tom Davies for Everton.

:35:12.:35:28.

To Barkley. Lukaku wants it played forward. Here he is. He's got four

:35:29.:35:39.

around him for company. Albion smothering Everton at every

:35:40.:35:41.

opportunity. It's still alive for the home side. Lukaku. It will drop

:35:42.:35:51.

for Barkley. Now Mirallas! Everton get the breakthrough. Kevin

:35:52.:35:58.

Mirallas, probably not the Belgian that most people before the game

:35:59.:36:02.

would have predicted would open the scoring. But six minutes before the

:36:03.:36:06.

break, Mirallas has his fourth of the season. Lukaku started it, and

:36:07.:36:14.

when it ran to Barkley, his effort brought a fine save from Foster.

:36:15.:36:18.

Mirallas on hand to pounce. Everton, for the first time this afternoon,

:36:19.:36:22.

had to soak up pressure in the last few moments, they take the lead.

:36:23.:36:26.

Mirallas, who has scored a few goals down the years at The Hawthorns,

:36:27.:36:30.

gets their first goal against Albion at Goodison for four years. Foul by

:36:31.:36:38.

McClean. The referee wants to play advantage, but then decides that a

:36:39.:36:41.

free-kick is the more logical option.

:36:42.:36:46.

Looking for Coleman. He is in behind Livermore, who pushed him over,

:36:47.:37:00.

didn't he? Well, does it look as though Coleman made a meal of it or

:37:01.:37:04.

is he trying to keep his feet and his feet are just slipping from

:37:05.:37:13.

underneath him? Everton looking really good at the moment. Bare

:37:14.:37:17.

feeds it through to Romelu Lukaku. Is held up by Evans. But not for

:37:18.:37:23.

long. He's found Schneider, who is in against Livermore. And

:37:24.:37:29.

Schneiderlin scores. It's his first Everton goal. It's the finish that a

:37:30.:37:33.

regular goalscorer would be proud of. Great hold-up play and linkup

:37:34.:37:40.

play from Lukaku. Schneiderlin too strong for Livermore and too cute

:37:41.:37:45.

for Ben Foster, who came out to meet him, but it's a great finish from

:37:46.:37:49.

the Frenchman whose last Premier League goal came from Manchester

:37:50.:37:53.

United against Everton here at Goodison. Robson-Kanu down for

:37:54.:38:01.

Chadli. Through the legs of Barry. Chadli goes on. . Gareth Southgate,

:38:02.:38:12.

England manager here to cast an eye over Ross Barkley, in particular,

:38:13.:38:14.

whose last appearance for England was a year ago against the

:38:15.:38:19.

Netherlands. Lithuania of course coming up for England at the end of

:38:20.:38:25.

this month. Mirallas. Running at Dawson and crossing. It's Barkley,

:38:26.:38:29.

on the turn, brill yanltly, is there a finish? Side-netting. Clever feet

:38:30.:38:36.

from Ross Barkley. Got it slightly underneath his feet before he could

:38:37.:38:39.

get the shot away. But he's revelling in this extra

:38:40.:38:42.

responsibility that Ronald Koeman has given him since the turn of the

:38:43.:38:46.

year, just to play behind Romelu Lukaku. Still the door slightly

:38:47.:38:55.

ajar. If Albion can get one, in the next few moments. Far side is Funes

:38:56.:39:01.

Mori with a chance to cross. Instead, it'ses Ross Barkley up

:39:02.:39:06.

against McAuley. -- it's. In towards Lukaku! He finds the net, as he

:39:07.:39:14.

always does at Goodison in 2017. Eight minutes from time. And if the

:39:15.:39:18.

game was ever in doubt, I don't really think it was, it certainly

:39:19.:39:23.

isn't now. Romelu Lukaku, for the first time in his Premier League

:39:24.:39:27.

career, reaches the tally of 19 goals. Fabulous delivery. Lukaku

:39:28.:39:32.

nods it home past a hapless Ben Foster.

:39:33.:39:36.

Might be time for a fourth if this stays in and they do anything with

:39:37.:39:44.

the cross. It's Giaccherini, turning well. Firing against the post. Just

:39:45.:39:50.

four points between these sides at kick-off today. There was a requests

:39:51.:39:54.

imon the pitch. Everton 3, West Bromwich Albion 0. We will always

:39:55.:39:59.

score because we have that type of players and of course with Romelu

:40:00.:40:02.

Lukaku, normally he will score every game. That's a really comfortable

:40:03.:40:07.

situation, but you needed to fight, you need to defend of you need to

:40:08.:40:12.

run. Also I think the pressing on the ball, on the midfield and by Tom

:40:13.:40:18.

Davies and Morgan was outstanding. 3-0 scoreline, did the play reflect

:40:19.:40:22.

that? You watch the game, Martin, I don't think it did. Obviously,

:40:23.:40:27.

conceding the two goals before half-time, you know, killed us. Up

:40:28.:40:30.

until that point we were well in the game. You know, Lukaku and Barkley

:40:31.:40:36.

were pretty outstanding for them today and, you know, that final

:40:37.:40:42.

third, it's thin lines. You know they have benefitted from it today.

:40:43.:40:47.

You can't fault the players they worked hard and put a lot of effort

:40:48.:40:51.

into this game if you haven't been here you would think it was a stroll

:40:52.:40:54.

in the park for Everton, it was anything but that. Not my prime job

:40:55.:41:01.

to do it, to score goals, but if I can help the team and to score many

:41:02.:41:06.

goals, I will do it because, like I say, if you want to be a top mid

:41:07.:41:10.

Eldin Jakupovic fielder you need to score more than five goals a season.

:41:11.:41:15.

I will try to score a couple more. His first goal for 511 days in the

:41:16.:41:21.

Premier League. It's obviously paying dividends reuniting with his

:41:22.:41:24.

old manager, Ronald Koeman? He is maybe not the final piece in the

:41:25.:41:30.

jigsaw, he is a major part of that picture

:41:31.:41:36.

you see it for Everton. Barry sits deeper. Of all these great players,

:41:37.:41:41.

I say great, Barkley and Lukaku will be top, top players if not already.

:41:42.:41:44.

Somebody has to sit deep and do the work. Be the feeder. Look at this.

:41:45.:41:49.

He wants to punch things into those players and make things happen. He

:41:50.:41:54.

clears up as well. No doubt. He is the nightwatchman but he wants to

:41:55.:41:58.

pass and make things happen. His manager knows him well. He wants to

:41:59.:42:03.

be the all round midfield player. That's the pleasing thing. Koeman

:42:04.:42:06.

will give him the licence to get forward. As he does here. He drifts

:42:07.:42:09.

forward, Lukaku does brilliantly. There is no doubt he is you are ping

:42:10.:42:15.

now, Lukaku. Look at this, lifts it over the goalkeeper. Shows he can

:42:16.:42:20.

play. To be in Koeman's team you have to be able to show all the

:42:21.:42:25.

facets of a midfield player. He was told he wasn't good enough for

:42:26.:42:27.

Manchester United. He is good enough for Everton. Lukaku on 19 goals,

:42:28.:42:32.

best ever Premier League season. We have ten games to go? He is on fire.

:42:33.:42:36.

He is playing well. Knows his role in the team. Looks fitter. His stats

:42:37.:42:41.

there, improving year after year. You think about his experience, he

:42:42.:42:46.

is still only 23. He's been involved in 24 Premier League goals this

:42:47.:42:55.

season. Sanchez has had 26. He is a nightmare for defenders. He's

:42:56.:42:59.

powerful, good in the air. He can finish with both feet. Runs in

:43:00.:43:03.

behind. His linkup play is I improving all the time. The biggest

:43:04.:43:08.

thing, this is what Everton fans will here, he's ambition. Ambitious.

:43:09.:43:13.

He wants to play in the Champions League. They have to match that. If

:43:14.:43:18.

not they will be leaving. They are getting closer to that top six that

:43:19.:43:23.

they crave. The Premier League season continues

:43:24.:43:25.

on Sunday with Match of the Day 2 # You'll never walk alone...

:43:26.:43:43.

#. Everton have lost only one

:43:44.:43:57.

of their last 17 home matches and their win over West Brom sees

:43:58.:44:03.

the Toffees close the gap on sixth Hull's third win over Swansea this

:44:04.:44:06.

season leaves them just a point from safety,

:44:07.:44:10.

although Crystal Palace have a game in hand,

:44:11.:44:11.

while Bournemouth remain 14th after picking up their

:44:12.:44:13.

first win of 2017. That's it for the

:44:14.:44:15.

Premier League action.

:44:16.:44:18.
