Romelu Lukaku's 50th league goal for Everton put them on the way to a deserved 2-0 victory over West Ham United on Sunday, ending a run of four league games without a win.

It kept the Merseysiders sixth in the Premier League and West Ham in the bottom five.

Goalkeeper Adrian's one-handed save from Ross Barkley was the highlight of a quiet first half. The game livened up within five minutes of the resumption when Yannick Bolasie set up Lukaku to head into an empty net.

Barkley began and finished the move for the second goal, driving in Lukaku's cross.
