Half Time: West Ham 1 Everton 0 - Morrison!!!!!!!!

Ok, it took a huge deflection, without which the ball would not have found the back of the net, but who cares? Ravel is off the mark, West Ham have scored and, thus far, the roses are sweet smelling.

We haven't looked particularly good with the ball again, but we have looked far better than against Stoke. Maiga has won three headers and has actually found a team mate with a few passes. He's also had a shot which, sadly, sailed well over the goal. But beggars can't be choosers, that's a marked improvement!

Again, the defending in midfield and at the back has been tigerish, and one Jussi save apart for Marallis, we have coped excellently without the ball. The trouble, Everton have been poor, in part thanks to our pressing game, and are likely to improve markedly in the second 45. Poor O'Brien has his hands full with Baines and Marallis and if Lukaku comes on, Collins and Reid will know they are in a game. Morrison has to be careful too after a first half yellow for a rash challenge.

Fingers crossed, but we have led against Everton quite a few times before, only to lose the game!
