As the saying goes (sort of) it's been a game of two contrasting periods. The Hammers dominated the first 20 minutes and could well have taken the lead on a couple of occasions but for fine defending from Seamus the Coal Man et al. Dimi Payet band Manny Lanzini both carved out good chances but couldn't quite convert.
However, for the latter part of the half Everton have been in the ascendency with Ross Barkley denied by an amazing Adrian save. However, perhaps the key moment was when Pedro Obiang was hauled down by Gueye but Referee Anthony Taylor bottled it and produced only a yellow card. Gueye had pushed Michail Antonio in the face a few minutes prior to that in a challenge that surely also warranted a yellow card. Hmmmm.
Either way, it's 0-0 at the break, but the good news is that the Hammers look back to their usual selves again! Promising...
