Everton have been dealt a second injury blow in two days after Dominic Calvert-Lewin suffered a setback in his rehabilitation from a quadriceps problem.
The club said the striker would “remain out for a number of weeks”. On Tuesday it emerged that the in-form midfielder Abdoulaye Doucouré had broken a foot.Continue reading...

David Moyes engaged the referee, Stuart Attwell, in lengthy conversation on the final whistle, then waved politely to old friends in the directors’ box before striding over to the jubilant West Ham fans in the far corner of Goodison Park. Only when he reached them, and started punching the air in celebration, did we finally see what this victory meant.
Goodison has not provided its former manager with the warmest of returns since he departed eight years ago, revelling in his torturous finale at Manchester United and overlooking his claims for a second go at the job several times since. The sight of Rafael Benítez, a former adversary from many Merseyside derbies, in the home dugout may have provided an added spur. West Ham delivered a result and a performance for their manager to savour. The visitors lacked a cutting edge to accompany their authority but, thanks to Angelo Ogbonna’s late header, claimed the victory their efforts deserved.Continue reading...

It was a happy return to Goodison Park for David Moyes, with Angelo Ogbonna heading a second-half winner for West Ham
While we’re on the topic of Rice, he seems to be collecting attributes like football stickers. Just a couple of seasons ago, he looked like a centre-back playing in midfield, but increasingly he looks like a man at one with his position and at one with himself; if he can get on the ball more often, he might just start controlling games, as well as influencing them.
I’m really looking forward to watching Demarai Gray and Andros Townsend today. The suspicion, when they arrived at Goodison, was that the combined fee of £1.7m was the key motivating factor, but they’ve made an absolute mockery of that, whether theory or reality. What’s especially interesting is that both can play on either flank or in behind, so are able to turn up or receive the ball in all sorts of areas. I daresay Declan Rice has been briefed on his responsibilities this afternoon.Continue reading...

Everton manager’s rice-and-vegetables approach is not to all tastes but who better to lead the club to the game’s high table?
What we want and what we need are often very different things. You get home weary in the evening and look around the kitchen. You probably could knock something reasonably tasty together from the vegetables and the brown rice, but you feel the urge of the delivery. Perhaps you go for the familiar pizza, the comfortingly big easy flavours. There’s the greasy satisfaction of feeling full, but in the morning you feel bloated – and then a glimpse at the receipt provokes another wave of regret.
Or maybe you try the fashionable new German or Swiss place everybody’s raving about. It arrives and you don’t really get it. You pretend you’re sophisticated enough to appreciate it, but you don’t enjoy it and it doesn’t fill you up. You’ve wasted your money.Continue reading...

The idea that Rafael Benítez and David Moyes would one day be standing in the home and away areas at Goodison Park respectively would have seemed ludicrous during their six years as Merseyside rivals, yet both have moved on impressively with the job of rebuilding reputations and historic clubs. Everton have won their opening three home games for the first time in 32 years and a fourth would bring their highest points total after eight matches of the Premier League era. West Ham, however, are unbeaten on the road this term and can equal a club record of seven consecutive Premier League away games without defeat. Andy Hunter
