Easy, easy win for Everton. A bad, bad day for West Brom.

Many thanks for your company. Read a report on this match on the BBC Sport website.

HITS THE WOODWORK

Everton 3-0 West Brom

Everton substitute Idrissa Gueye hits a post after letting fly from outside the area. West Brom can't wait for the final whistle.

Tony Bellew has brought his children to the game. The TV camera zooms in on the boxer who has a broad smile on his face. And so he might.

YELLOW CARD

Everton 3-0 West Brom

Craig Dawson collects his ninth yellow card of the season after upending 19-year-old Everton substitute Dominic Calvert-Lewin.

West Brom have been shocking.

Everton 3-0 West Brom

Everton are finishing strongly. Ross Barkley has a shot from outside the area blocked. It falls into the path of Tom Davies and his effort is also deflected.

Romelu Lukaku is now level with Harry Kane at the top of the Premier League goalscoring charts.

GOAL - Everton 3-0 West Brom

Romelu Lukaku

Too easy. West Brom get what they deserve as Ross Barkley delivers an inch-perfect cross for Romelu Lukaku to head his 19th goal of the season.

SUBSTITUTION

Everton 2-0 West Brom

This has descended into a tedious game. Everton are coasting, West Brom are showing little attacking intent.

The Baggies make their third change as James Morrison replaces Claudio Yacob.

WEST BROM SUBSTITUTION

Everton 2-0 West Brom

Finally Tony Pulis makes a change. Chris Brunt replaces James McClean. Seconds later another change by the Baggies. Salomon Rondon has not scored a Premier League goal in 2017 but is on for Hal Robson-Kanu.

YELLOW CARD

Everton 2-0 West Brom

Claudio Yacob fouls Romelu Lukaku on the edge of the D. It results in the first yellow card of the game and presents Everton with another goalscoring chance.

Lukaku picks himself up...but his effort fails to clear the wall.

EVERTON SUBSTITUTION

Everton 2-0 West Brom

Everton make their second change. Goalscorer Kevin Mirallas gets a standing ovation as he makes way for Idrissa Gueye.

Meanwhile, that double change for West Brom is not happening. Both subs are back in their seats.

Everton 2-0 West Brom

This is a pretty lacklustre display by West Brom. Where's the fight? They're reluctant to push players forward. Why?

Everton 2-0 West Brom

Morgan Schneiderlin is wearing the No 2 shirt. I'm reliably informed the last No 2 to score for Everton before Schneiderlin was Steve Watson, hat trick goal against Leeds United in September 2003.

DOUBLE SUBSTITUTION

Everton 2-0 West Brom

Changes imminent for West Brom.

Everton 2-0 West Brom

Another free-flowing Everton move results in a chance for Ross Barkley, whose shot ripples the side netting. This is tough going for West Brom.

Everton 2-0 West Brom

Crunching challenge by Morgan Schneiderlin on Hal Robson-Kanu in the middle of the pitch. No-nonsense. The Everton man is fortunate not to be shown a yellow card. 

Everton 2-0 West Brom

West Brom's next two games after this are Arsenal at home and Manchester United away. March could yet be an uncomfortable month for Tony Pulis' side. 

Everton 2-0 West Brom

It's another composed performance from Tom Davies. The 18-year-old is very tidy in possession and his passing has been decent. Everton have a star in the making.

Everton 2-0 West Brom

Everton are not sitting back on their lead and you have to fear for West Brom. Romelu Lukaku, who has been involved in both goals, is inside the Baggies area looking to cause further damage but James McClean does well to get in a challenge and get it clear.

Everton 2-0 West Brom

Hearing Leighton Baines has taken a knock. It's not serious but Ronald Koeman is taking no chances.

HALF-TIME

Everton 2-0 West Brom

We're back under way with a change for Everton. Leighton Baines has not re-appeared - Ramiro Funes Mori is on.

Everton 2-0 West Brom

More on Morgan Schneiderlin's goal. It is his first in the Premier League in 511 days, since netting against Everton for Manchester United at Goodison Park.

Everton 2-0 West Brom

That was Morgan Schneiderlin's first goal in an Everton shirt since joining from Manchester United in January for a fee rising to £24m.

West Brom made a £15m bid for the midfielder in December.

HALF-TIME

Everton 2-0 West Brom

Everton are in cruise control. The Baggies have serious work to do if they are to avoid a second successive league defeat.

Schneiderlin doubles the lead

Everton 2-0 West Brom

Remember when West Brom tried to sign Manchester United's Morgan Schneiderlin but he went to Everton instead?

Schneiderlin shows what the Baggies are missing out on as he clips the ball past Ben Foster after a lovely turn and pass by Romelu Lukaku carves open the West Brom defence.

Everton 1-0 West Brom

Still no clean sheet away from home in the league since the opening day of the season for West Brom.

Mirallas fires Everton ahead

Everton 1-0 West Brom

They've had to work hard for it but Everton have the lead.

Romelu Lukaku starts the move which sees Ben Foster parry Ross Barkley's shot into the path of Mirallas to tuck home.

Everton are on course for a fifth successive Premier League home win.

GREAT SAVE!

Everton 0-0 West Brom

Joel Robles keeps Everton level after Nacer Chadli drills a low effort towards the net which requires Robles to make a diving save.

Everton 0-0 West Brom

West Brom are enjoying their best spell of the game. A great run by James McClean ends in Ashley Williams just getting ahead of Hal Robson-Kanu who was ready to turn it home.

Everton 0-0 West Brom

Trouble for Everton as Craig Dawson powers forward before arrowing in a cross which Joel Robles flaps out. It brings West Brom their first corner.

CLOSE!

Everton 0-0 West Brom

Chances are few and far between in a game which has yet to ignite but Leighton Baines easily beats Nacer Chadli before clipping in a cross which Romelu Lukaku heads wide from close range.

Two big chances for Lukaku yet it remains goalless.

Everton 0-0 West Brom

At 36, Gareth Barry is the second oldest player on the pitch behind 37-year-old Gareth McAuley. Barry has already covered a fair distance and tracks back to get in a challenge which thwarts Nacer Chadli inside the Toffees penalty area.

Everton 0-0 West Brom

It's Wales against Wales as Hal Robson-Kanu goes down inside the Everton area while tussling with Ashley Williams.

A couple of West Brom players want a penalty. The referee is not interested.

Everton 0-0 West Brom

Tony Pulis will be pleased with this. Everton have been restricted to one clear chance in the opening quarter of the game.

It's an untidy game but the Baggies, who have not kept a clean sheet on their Premier League travels since the opening day of the season, are growing into this.

Everton 0-0 West Brom

Joel Robles is called into action for the first time - the Everton keeper on his toes to collect Darren Fletcher's looping header from Craig Dawson's cross.

CLOSE!

Everton 0-0 West Brom

Sharp passing just outside the West Brom penalty area leads to Gareth Barry releasing Romelu Lukaku.

The striker is unmarked and lets fly from an angle from about 12 yards...it's agonisingly wide.

That's the game's first big chance.
