FT: Everton 2 West Brom 1

And that's full time. Many thanks for following and give me a follow on Twitter @danielstorey85. Congratulations Everton, and well done Leighton Baines, some player.

90+4
Everton playing keep ball in the West Brom area, but lose the ball

90+2
Jelavic opts not to keep the ball in the corner, much to the frustration of David Moyes

90
We will have four minutes of added time

89
Some handbags between Neville and Olsson, but comes to nothing

87
West Brom beginning to apply pressure as Everton will look to defend this out

85
Lukaku earns a corner for West Brom

84
Anichebe off for Jelavic

83
That's an awful miss from Osman. Pienaar hits the post but the ball rebounds out to Osman, who somehow hits the ball over

81
Mirallas the man who came off

81
Dorrans booked for tripping Baines

80
Gibson has been brought on for Everton. Not 100% who came off just yet

78
Everton are now the side pushing for a goal, West Brom saving themselves for a last hurrah

76
West Brom making their final change, Rosenborg on for Thomas

76
This is now end-to-end, but David Moyes must be disappointed that it is even a contest

73
Jagielka shoots over the bar. Everton have finally got themselves going again

71
Leon Osman fires over the bar, and this game now has an electric atmosphere

69
Huge appeals for an Everton penalty, and in fairness Anichebe was dragged to the ground by Yacob. Big call

68
Dorrans hits the bar with a free kick. Everton are rocking here

67
Free kick to West Brom 25 yards out.

67
Why oh why did Everton sit back at 2-0 up. They were the better team but allowed West Brom onto them.

66
That's a horror show for Heitinga. Lukaku rounds Howard and shoots on goal. Heitinga is there to clear, but fails to clear and inexplicably allows Long to head home.

65
2-1!!! Shane Long scores

64
Shot from Lukaku blocked by Distin

63
James Morrison replaced by Shane Long. Attacking change

62
Not a brilliant return from injury for Yacob so far....

61
First booking of the game for Yacob, who barges into the back of Pienaar

59
From the corner, Pienaar shoots straight at Foster

58
Mirallas shoots, and Foster gets down well to save and tip wide

56
West Brom win a corner, their first of the match

55
Billy Jones has now made four or five fouls, and must be careful to avoid a booking

54
Baines caught offisde after more interchanges with Pienaar.

53
West Brom are at least enjoying more possession than at any stage of the first half

51
West Brom have to get players in support of Lukaku if they are to have a chance here. He is being left so isolated, even with the ball at feet

49
Marouane Fellaini tracks Thomas, one of West Brom's brighter players this evening, and wins the goal kick

47
West Brom did not show anything during the first half, but Lukaku immediately has a shot on goal. It goes a way over, however

46
Back underway

And that's half time. Two Baines goals see Everton with a comfortable lead. What can West Brom do to respond? Join me for more in fifteen minutes.

45+3
Nothing more than Everton deserve. Easy penalty into the bottom right hand corner. A huge task for West Brom now.

Clumsy tackle, Baines scores the penalty!!

Anichebe brought down by Yacob

45+1
We will have three minutes of added time

45
Since the goal, West Brom have resorted to lumping ball forward to Lukaku, which isn't helping him with little support

44
After that stoppage, the game has gone a touch flat as we meander to half time, but David Moyes will be a happy man.

43
Possibly unfortunately becomes definitely, as a stretcher is brought on. It looked innocuous, but may have twisted his knee. Yacob will replace, but thoughts with Thorne as he looks in huge pain. Goodison stands to applaud, which is nice.

42
Thorne does look to be in pain as he stays down. Possibly may have to be withdrawn

41
Thorne has an injury for West Brom, and receives treatment. Just looks like a clash of knees

40
The link-up between Baines and Pienaar down the left is giving Everton so much joy since the switch of wings by Mirallas. He has barely touched the ball since he moved to the right, but Everton look dangerous every time the ball goes down the left

38
The running and hassling by Anichebe makes him a manager's dream. Not for the first time he forces a West Brom defender into a hurried clearance, and they win the ball back.

37
Foul by Jones on Pienaar, and Everton have a set piece out wide, but it is wasted.

36
Lukaku flagged offside. That's five of those so far against West Brom already, hampering any potential

35
The corner causes panic, but after the ball is returned into the box, Foster finally claims well and aims to release Thomas

34
Baines again crosses, and Olsson has to clear behind. Baines is playign beautifully again

33
Everton now dominant, and a Baines cross causes panic in the Baggies box. West Brom must hold out here.

32
Perhaps I'm being harsh on Foster. It does travel with great power, I just think that having got a touch, he'll be disappointed

31
West Brom must now respond. They haven't had a shot in anger as yet

30
Another goal for the left back. The game needed a goal, but Everton do deserve that.

It's a great strike from Baines, at huge power, but for me Ben Foster is at fault there. He gets a touch and it goes through him

29
Baines scores!!! 1-0 Everton

27
Mirallas has switched to the right, with Pienaar coming to the left, leaving Anichebe up front alone but with Fellaini now able to assist

25
Mirallas is a bright player, but is often wasteful in possession. This time he loses out to Jones

24
Interesting that despite the lack of Jelavic in the side, Fellaini is playing very deep.

23
Goodison is more upbeat now, as Osman begins to enjoy spells on the ball. Ben Foster is noticeably taking an age over his goal kicks

22
Jagielka is playing at right back tonight, and is enjoying the opportunity to venture forward

20
Everton beginning to dominate, as you can probably sense

20
Fellaini hits the post! A long ball is played up to Distin who knocks it down for the Belgian. His shot clips the angle of post and bar.

19
Mirallas gets in down the left, but his pull back is poor. Everton do get a corner.

18
Anichebe almost scores a complete fluke! the attacker turns his man but overruns the ball. Sliding in, his block loops over Foster and just over the bar

16
A poor kick out from Ben Foster almost causes West Brom problems, but the midfield does well to close down Osman

15
Have to say, there is a rather sleepy feel to the match thus far. There are groans from the crowd already, which does seem a touch harsh

14
West Brom finally taking the chance to build things calmly, with George Thorne on the ball often

12
West Brom need Dorrans and Thorne to get their foot on the ball. They are not under huge pressure, but Everton have been able to dominate the ball

11
Pienaar is finding a lot of space in between defence and midfield, allowing him to pick a pass at will

10
Mirallas shoots from 20 yards which rolls wide after clipping the feet of Anichebe

9
Dorrans strikes from the edge of the box for West Brom, but fine block from Distin. First danger for Everton. Lukaku then gets a weak header in on goal

8
Fellaini strikes from 25 yards, but it is blocked by Olsson

7
Great hold up play from Anichebe, but his pass is then miscued, which frustrates the striker

6
Steven Pienaar earns a foul on halfway, and West Brom have not settled sufficiently as yet

5
Everton win the first corner off Olsson. Great cross from Mirallas causes panic at the panic. Claims for handball, but it is cleared.

3
Mirallas dispossessed when attacking the centre backs. The crowd are quiet here, seemingly waiting for the players to entertain

2
A very low key start as both sides size each other up, but Everton win an attacking throw in

1
Everton beginning by calmly passing the ball round the back

1
We are underway...

Our last input before kick off, from Ashley Manhire: "gotta be looking for 3 points here tonight! Lets hope Big Vic takes his chance and gets a goal or two!"

Z Cars blares out as the teams walk out to the cheers of the Goodison faithful

Michael Oliver is our referee, by the way. He's young but has a sterling reputation. Sure he will keep it that way tonight.

Five minutes away from kick off. The ground isn;t full yet but it is getting there. Thankfully, it isn't as cold as it has been on Merseyside.

Hamza is on the Twitter machine to have his say: "Everton to win after a dry spell, slightly disappointing that jelavic is on the bench but it may be good for him. 2-1 BLUES"

Use of the word 'Mighty' gave the game away there didn't it!

A response to Alex Duval from Ray Allden: "Hi, would be happy with a draw but have a sneaky feeling it will be 2-1 to the mighty baggies".

West Brom tonight will do without Peter Odemwingie. The striker is officially given time off after the birth of his son, but you may well know that he has used Twitter to express his wishes regarding a move to Harry's QPR.

Also have some betting news for you, courtesy of SkyBet: Everton are proving extremely popular with the punters tonight despite being odds-on favourites at 8-15 while West Brom are 5/1 with the draw 3/1. Kevin Miralles gets the start upfront and is 13/2 to open the scoring.

Agree with Alex, or think he is talking poppycock? Well then let me no, silly. It's @danielstorey85

Hurrah, I'm not alone. Alex Duval has been in touch, and has this to say: "Everton need a big win here tonight, so I'm going for 2-0 with Mirallas scoring the first, WBA just don't have enough"

I have to say that I'm pleased for Victor Anichebe getting a run in the first team. He has impressed with both his hold-up play and crucial goals. Jelavic has performed for Everton, but his goal record recently has been dry at best.

Everton fans will be looking for a boost after the news that their deal for Leroy Fer has been cancelled. Still, you'd rather know about a knee problem before than after signing a player. Does that mean they have £8million burning a hole in their pocket?

West Brom, meanwhile, have struggled of late. They were third in November but now find themselves in eighth place. Steve Clarke will want his side to stop the rot

So, Everton looking to continue a run that has seen them sit in fifth place, three points off the top four, and one defeat in ten

West Brom: Foster, Jones, McAuley, Olsson, Popov, Thorne, Brunt, Dorrans, Morrison, Thomas, Lukaku Subs: Myhill, Tamas, Yacob, Long, Rosenberg, Ridgewell, Fortune

Everton: Howard, Baines, Heitinga, Jagielka, Mirallas, Distin, Neville, Osman, Pienaar, Fellaini, Anichebe Subs: Mucha, Gibson, Jelavic, Oviedo, Naismith, Hitzlsperger, Gueye

The teams are in, and Everton's main news is that Nikica Jelavic has been dropped after his poor spell

My name is Daniel Storey, and the first thing I urge you to do is get in touch with me via Twitter (@danielstorey85) with your thoughts and predictions ahead of the game

Good evening and welcome to live text commentary from Goodison Park as Everton host West Brom.
