Adrian's one-armed save gained inevitable plaudits to deny Barkley midway through the first half but it was a deflection which had spared his blushes.

The defender fired a powerful effort at Adrian, who could only parry the ball into the path of Yannick Bolasie, who directed it back into the centre of the box where Lukaku was waiting to head in from close range.

On the quarter hour, Edimilson Fernandes looked to score a second goal, only to see his shot blocked to give Lukaku a break away which ended with Winston Reid slipping and Gareth Barry curling a shot inches over the bar.

The goal sparked a big reaction from West Ham, but they were unable to find a way past Robles in the Everton goal.

Lukaku kept up his remarkable scoring record against the Hammers by heading the Toffees in front in the 50th minute.
