First blood! It's not quite a development on the combative themes that earlier threatened to escalate at times this afternoon however. Naismith goes down with a bit of crimson trickling out of his leg. It looks as though he was could by a stud. He's being carried off on a stretcher.

WEST HAM SUBSTITUTION: Ricardo Vaz Tae on for Morgan Amilfitano. The Portuguese forward replaces the Frenchman, who has been on the receiving end of a fair amount of abuse today from his Blue-shirted markers. Can Vaz Tae find a late leveller?

EVERTON SUBSTITUTION: Muhamed Besic comes on for Ross Barkley to shore up the Everton midfield with his tackling and energy. Eto'o has played his role as attacking super sub well so far. Can Besic now kill he game in order to secure the three points for the Toffees?

GOAL! Newcastle 1-0 QPR. Sissoko scores. Newcastle patiently build down the left with Haidara and Ameobi. Sissoko lays the ball back to Ameobi, he dinks the ball back into the box to find Sissoko's run into the box and he curls a shot into the far corner.

James Collins almost equalises for West Ham! Jarvis runs down the left channels and fires a shot at Howard's far post, forcing the keeper to block the ball with his shins. The ball falls to the Welsh central defender, who could have been carded for his challenge on Lukaku, who makes a bit of a mess of it. Let down by a defender's touch in front of goal.

Costa back on his feet after a spot of treatment. But the first Chelsea change of the day sees Oscar depart to be replaced by Loic Remy.

GOAL! Everton 2-1 West Ham (Osman) - Clattenberg plays advantage to Everton as Lukaku is taken out by Collins. Yet the West Ham defender's cynical challenge only succeeds in sending the ball into Eto'o's path, who streams out to the right side of the box to draw Adian and the backpeddling defenders. With his markers committed, the Cameroonian sends in a beautiful pass across the box to Leon Osman who is free on the left. The Evertonian doesn't miss, and fires home into an almost open goal to marks his 400th appearance with a goal. Narrative strikes again!

Gouffran robs Young and quickly moves away from him and into the box. He finds Perez in the centre, and he snaps a shot at the near post. Green saves competently.

Another speedy break. Some nice play by Matic. Fabregas with the pass for Hazard, but that is a fine stop by Foster from the Fabregas pass.

EVERTON SUBSTITUTION: Samuel Eto'o is on for Kevin Mirallas, with Everton looking for a goal to keep their fearsome record against West Ham intact. It's probably a wise move removing Mirallas from play too given his reaction to Tomkins.

Tom Carroll, who gave the ball away for City's second goal, makes way for Jonjo Shelvey as the away side chase an equaliser.

Great one-two between Ulloa and James but the latter's low shot is saved by the keeper, that was a great chance.

61'

YELLOW CARDS: One for Mirallas and one for Tomkins, again for the tackle and then the reaction respecitvely, as was the case with McCarthy and Reid in the first half. Amilfitano, the victim of both challenges, is walking around the pitch like a man with a thousand grudges. He must keep his head for West Ham to continue to hold their own here.

GOAL! Manchester City 2-1 Swansea City. The champions have their goal! Fernandinho finds Yaya Toure in the box with a backheel, and the Ivorian powers through before sliding the ball past Fabianski. Outstanding goal.

Cattermole is booked for a rash challenge on Cambiasso, which leads to some argey bargey between him and Vardy. He is lucky to stay on the pitch for that.

GOAL! Everton 1-1 West Ham (Zarate) - Allardyce's gambit pays off. Zarate has been heavily involved with everyting over the last few minutes and he's rewarded with a somewhat lucky goal. After racing towards the box, the Argentinian is able to get a shot off that deflects off Jagielka's back and balloons into the air. Howard looks on helpless as the sudden trajectory change sends the shot into the back of his net. It's all square at Goodison Park.

Sissoko races forward after QPR lose possession high up the pitch, slips in Perez, he takes a few touches and tries to touch the ball over Green, but the 'keeper is out quickly to pull off a good block.

WEST HAM SUBSTITUTIONS: Mauro Zarate on for Carlton Cole and Matt Jarvis on for Kevin Nolan. West Ham's captain hobbled off the field to make way for the former Wolves winger. With Zarate joining Jarvis on the field, it looks as though Allardyce is looking for more movement and a change of tact.

Willian loops the ball at the visiting goal. Just over the head of Costa with Foster beaten. So close to a third goal. Again.

The whistle blows for the start of the second-half and West Ham immediately send the ball up top for Carroll and Co. to test the early awareness of their markers. It fails to produce much besides a turnover of possession to Everton however.

Another glorious chance for Chelsea to increase the margin, but Matic lifts the ball over the bar from the Oscar pass. Should really have been three.

The second half gets underway. A goal would be nice, and Janmaat has a low cross cut out for another corner by Caulker. Sandro then blocks another Janmaat cross.

The teams are back on the pitch and the Black Cats will get the second half underway. No half-time changes from either side.

45'+2

HALF-TIME: Everton 1-0 West Ham - An interesting clash of styles which has so far seen Everton come out on top, but it hasn't just been about skill versus steel. There's been plenty of good football and physical challenges from both sides. Everton may have even been the more brutish side given the severity of some of their tackles late in the second half.

Zamora jumps into the back of Colback to win a header, using his arm. It's clumsy and perhaps deserving of a booking, but he escapes any punishment. That's the end of the half.

YELLOW CARDS: Winston Reid receives a yellow for pushing McCarthy, who also receives a card for his challenge. Sam Allardyce and Roberto Martinez argue on the sidelines. What was it about the friendly atmosphere in the tunnel?

Foster races off his line to make a solid stop from Costa. Another excellent save by the England goalkeeper, who is having an excellent match.

Haidara is blocked by Onuoah on the left wing as he sprinted forward, and the QPR man is booked.

Everton almost gift West Ham an equaliser as Martinez's organisational problems at the back rear their head once again. A sloppy pass into no man's land allows Nolan to snatch the initiative and send the ball to Morgan Amilfitano. The Frenchman is clear on goal as the Everton defence struggles to fit its feet but his shot isn't good enough. A big opportunity missed by Big Sam's team.

Taylor has gone down outside the box, and he's injured his right knee again, making his return from injury in 2012. Gouffran is coming on, and Taylor is devastated.

RED CARD! Yacob is off the park for a two-footed challenge on Diego Costa. He won the ball, but it is deemed dangerous play. West Brom down to 10 men. There day goes from bad to woese.

GOAL! A second for Chelsea as Hazard's shot is deflected off Dawson before beating Forster. Awful defending. And Chelsea lead 2-0.

GOAL! Everton 1-0 West Ham (Lukaku) - Everton's follow up move isn't as silky but West Ham don't look as ready for them, and Naismith plays Barkley in who wrong foots the Hammers defence with his shimmer. Adrian is able to parry his shot but it falls to the feet of Lukaku who smashes it home from the left side of the box. Right place, right time.

There's a horrible thud as Bartley clatters into Aguero. It's a needless tackle from behind. The home fans are furious and, after plenty of deliberation, referee Neil Swarbrick gives the defender a yellow card.

Perez bursts down the ritght, uses close control to find Cabella a few yards behind him in the box after stumbling. He lays the ball inside for Taylor, but he curls a shot into the arms of Green.

GOAL! Azpilicueta with the pass to Oscar for the cross. Costa controls with his chest before firing the volley into the net. Great finish, no chance for Foster. Chelsea lead 1-0.

Superb stop from Foster to deny Terry the opening goal from five yards out after Chelsea worked the short corner. Dawson then clears the corner from the other stuff. West Browm living on the edge.

Everton get the game under way and proceed to pass it back into their defence as they do. It may take some time for both teams to settle into this game given the number of injuries and changes.

Newcastle begin the match, and a long ball forward for Perez is overhit and out for a goal kick.
