And that is full-time. It finishes 0-0, which will leave Bilic frustrated perhaps as his side created the better chances. Everton will feel they were let off the hook as they failed to have a single shot on target.
There will be two added minutes.
The ball is played over the top for Sakho who may have controlled the ball with his arm. His shot is blocked for a corner. The set piece falls to Fonte at the back post but his header down is straight at the keeper.
Baines puts the ball into the area and Fernandes puts it behind for another Everton corner. This time Collins heads the ball clear, the ball is crossed in again and Jagielka's looping header goes over. Collins is lucky not to concede a penalty as he was tugging Williams' shirt as the cross came in.
Calvert-Lewin puts in a deep cross and Fonte flicks the ball behind for a corner. The set-piece comes out to Lookman, whose ball into the box is cleared.
Everton have a corner after Nordtveit loses his footing and puts the ball behind. The delivery from Barkley is cleared.

- Yellow cardJosé FonteWest Ham United
Fonte is booked for diving in on Calvert-Lewin, the youngster is lucky to avoid an injury.
CHANCE! Lookman has space on the edge of the box and fires in a dipping effort which is narrowly over, the youngster is coming more into the game.

Barry, the most booked player in Premier League history, has another caution against his name for tripping Ayew. The resulting free-kick is an attempted cross but is straight into the arms of the keeper.
The Hammers are continuing to press, the changes that Koeman made at the break have not had the desired effect.

CHANCE! Fernandes runs into the box, cuts inside and his shot is blocked, it falls to Lanzini's who fierce drive hits Jagielka.

And that is half-time. The home side have dominated and created a few half chances, while Everton have not had any chances of note. Lukaku has hardly had a kick.
There will be two added minutes.
West Ham have a promising move down the right but Fernandes puts in a poor cross, Calleri lethargically chases it down and loses it. The home side are certainly missing a target man like Carroll who can hold the ball better.
West Ham have a free-kick 40 yards out. Williams make a mess of a header, Collins flicks it on and Kouyate misses the ball with a bicycle kick.
Apologies to Hammers fans for the reminder about this man..

Everton have a corner after a cross is headed behind by Collins. The set piece by Bains misses everyone in the box and the Hammers clear.
- Yellow cardEdimilson FernandesWest Ham United
Fernandes is booked for tripping Baines as the full-back burst up the line. Everton have a resulting freekick which Mirallas will take. The ball into the back post is cleared away.
Reid is doing a good job using his strength to handle the threat of Lukaku. In fairness the striker has not had much service from Barkley or Mirallas.
SO CLOSE! Lanzini tees up Kouyate who lashes in a low drive from 20 yards which goes narrowly wide of the right-hand post.
GOOD EFFORT: The corner is swung in, Barkley clears. Nordtveit drives the ball in form distance, it hits Davies and comes back to him and his second shot is deflected and is saved by the keeper.
- Yellow cardIdrissa GueyeEverton
Gueye is shown his tenth yellow of the season after tripping Calleri from behind. The free-kick from Lanzini is flicked behind by Jagielka for a corner.
We have passed the halfway point of the half and we've yet to have any clear cut chances.
Reid has returned to the field and looks to be okay to continue.
INJURY: Reid has gone down in agony after being caught on Davies on the top of his foot. The skipper looks in a bad way as he talks to the physio.
Everton are three points behind fifth-placed Manchester United in the table, although Jose Mourinho's side have two games in hand. Koeman has set his side a target of finishing fifth to avoid having to qualify for the Europa League.
Calleri wants a free-kick after a challenge by Williams near the box after Everton give the ball away, the referee waves play on to the annoyance of the home crowd.
CLOSE SHAVE: Adrian nearly makes a meal of a backpass from a throw-in, kicking the ball straight at Lukaku's head before gathering the loose ball.
The Hammers are having a good spell, the fullbacks are going forward well.
CHANCE! Fernandes pings in a cross from the right for Calleri whose header takes a deflection and goes behind for a corner. The set piece is floated into the back post, Steklenburg is in no-mans land but Masuaku cannot get on the end of the ball.
The home side look to be lumping up balls to Calleri, but he does not appear to have the pace to run onto them. Jagielka is dealing with the threat with ease.
A scrappy start to the game, looks to be a good battle in midfield between Barkley and Nordtveit.
Kouyate gingerly returns to the field after getting treatment and we are back underway.
Kouyate has gone down with a knee injury and is receiving treatment. This is the last thing Bilic needs with his long list of absentees. Cresswell is warming up.
Roger East has a strong word with Davies after a crunching tackle on Nordtveit, the youngster appeared to win the ball though.
The Hammers are going for three at the back to handle the threat of Lukaku with Nordtveit marshalling them.
KICK OFF: Everton get the game underway in their yellow shirts.
Five minutes till kick-off at the London Stadium!
Koeman has kept faith with Holgate and Davies in his line-up. In the build up to the game he said English managers are afraid of giving youngsters a chance: "I see differences in how I like to give young players a chance maybe more than the English managers. They are afraid. I am not afraid to put young players in. I know in English football people say you have to look out for young players, that maybe they say they can play 15 or 20 games, not more."
Maarten Stekelenburg is in the starting XI for Everton for the first time since 19 December when he came off during the Merseyside derby. Meanwhile, Adrian makes his first league start since November.
Ahead of the game, Bilic is hoping to make home advantage count. "We have a few injuries, but we have a good team and we are very positive and this is a good lineup. It's a big game for us against a good team, but we're at home and we're expecting a good game today."
Romelu Lukaku has a sensational record against West Ham, scoring in each of his past nine matches against the Hammers. The striker has found the net 24 times this season and is the Premier League top scorer.
Interesting that both sides have changed their keeper with Randolph dropped for Adrian and Steklenburg in for Robles, which is Everton's only change. West Ham have a long absentee list which includes Carroll, Byram, Noble, Antonio, Ogbonna and Pedro Obiang.
West Ham make four changes to the side that draw 2-2 with Sunderland. Reid, Calleri, Nordtveit and goalkeeper Adrian all start. Argentine Calleri makes his first Premier League start of the season.
The form guide does not make good reading for Slaven Bilic's side: four defeats, one win and one draw from their last six games. Ronakd Koeman's side in contrast have won victories in that time, one draw and one loss.
Welcome to LIVE commentary of West Ham v Everton in the Premier League. The pressure is on the Hammers after a disappointing run of results while Everton are aiming to keep their hopes alive of snatching a top four place. Kick-off is at 15:00 GMT.
