FULL-TIME

Everton 4-0 Hull

Did I mention Everton are level on points with fifth-placed Arsenal?

Many thanks for your company. You can read a match report of this game on the BBC Sport website. Until next time. 

Lukaku at the double

Awful defending by Hull lets in Lukaku for his second in as many minutes. The Everton striker rolls the ball into the net after pouncing on a poor back pass.

GOAL - Everton 4-0 Hull

Romelu Lukaku

Everton have to keep hold of Lukaku!

Lukaku strikes again

Everton 3-0 Hull

He's done it! Romelu Lukaku becomes the first Evertonian to score at least 20 league goals in a single season since Gary Lineker scored 30 in 1985-86.

It's a clinical finish from the Belgium striker having been put through by Enner Valencia.

GOAL - Everton 3-0 Hull

Romelu Lukaku

Twenty up for Lukaku.

Everton 2-0 Hull

Enner Valencia scored 69 seconds after coming on for Tom Davies. That's what you call making an impact.

Everton 2-0 Hull

Will Romelu Lukaku get his 20th Premier League goal of the season?

He's twice gone close from distance but remains level on 19 with Harry Kane at the top of the scoring charts.

Everton 2-0 Hull

Everton are pressing for a third. Gareth Barry chips narrowly over from the edge of the penalty area after being teed-up by Ross Barkley who has got stronger as the game has gone on.

Super sub Valencia

Everton are going level on points with fifth-placed Arsenal.

Substitute Enner Valencia, who has only been on the pitch for a matter of moments, combines with Romelu Lukaku before applying a fine finish to leave his team within sight of a sixth successive Premier League home win.

That red card...no doubt it was a poor challenge by Huddlestone but there doesn't appear to have been any intent to hurt Gueye. 

Referee Paul Tierney was convinced it deserved a red card though.

RED CARD

Everton 1-0 Hull

Disaster for Hull. Tom Huddlestone is shown a straight red after clattering into Idrissa Gueye. The Tigers will spend the remainder of the game with 10 men. Is that game over for them?

CLOSE!

Everton 1-0 Hull

Everton's defence falls asleep and Andrew Robertson fires into the side netting from close range when he should have done better. 

Everton 1-0 Hull

Around 20 minutes remaining. Hull are not done and Andrea Ranocchia is beginning to deliver some decent balls into the Everton penalty area.

Everton need a second goal to calm the nerves of their fans.

SUBSTITUTION

Everton 1-0 Hull

Hull make their first change - and it's an attacking one. Forward Kamil Grosicki is on for defender Curtis Davies.

YELLOW CARD

Everton 1-0 Hull

First booking of the game goes to Ashley Willams and he can have no complaints after hauling down Lazar Markovic in full flight.

Everton 1-0 Hull

A delicious cross by Alfred N'Diaye causes a rare moment of panic inside the Everton penalty area.

The Toffees respond through Romelu Lukaku who forces a corner after Eldin Jakupovic dives full stretch to keep out his stinging effort after a wonderful pass by Leighton Baines. 

SUBSTITUTION

Everton 1-0 Hull

Change in formation for Everton?

Young goalscorer Dominic Calvert-Lewin gets a standing ovation as he is replaced by Ramiro Funes Mori, who has a chance with his very first touch but can't find the target from an angle inside the Hull box.

CLOSE!

Everton 1-0 Hull

Lukaku...just over the bar after creating space for himself outside the Hull penalty area. That's the closest he has come to notching his 20th Premier League goal of the campaign.

Everton 1-0 Hull

Two successive corner for Hull which come to nothing. That pretty much sums up their afternoon and Marco Silva shows his frustration.

Everton 1-0 Hull

Ross Barkley could be lining up for England away to Germany on Wednesday yet the midfielder has been pretty quiet here. The same could be said of Romelu Lukaku but there's still plenty of time left for both to make a serious impact.

Everton 1-0 Hull

No changes by either team at the start of the second half. Remember, Everton have already been forced into one substitution after losing Morgan Schneiderlin to injury.

HALF-TIME

Everton 1-0 Hull

Dominic Calvert-Lewin's goal is the difference.

Everton 1-0 Hull

How soon before Marco Silva calls upon Kamil Grosicki? Hull need a goal or two otherwise they are staying in the relegation zone.

Everton 1-0 Hull

Everton have lost their rhythm since Morgan Schneiderlin limped out. They have the lead but it's tame stuff by both teams with half-time approaching.

CLOSE!

Everton 1-0 Hull

They've hardly had a sniff all game but Hull are so close to an equaliser.

Ashley Williams gets it all wrong at the back as his attempted header back to Joel Robles lets in Sam Clucas.

The ball spins onto the of of Everton's net, replays appearing to suggest the last touch was Williams'.

Everton 1-0 Hull

Ashley Williams forces Eldin Jakupovic into a fairly comfortable save after meeting a cross and heading towards the top corner. 

What's up with Everton's fans? Their team is on course for a sixth straight Premier League home win yet Goodison Park is awfully quiet.

SUBSTITUTION

Everton 1-0 Hull

Blow for the Toffees as Morgan Schneiderlin is forced off with an injury and disappears down the tunnel towards the dressing room.

That paves the way for Gareth Barry to come on for his 620th Premier League game.

Boxer and Everton fan Tony Bellew is back in the stands at Goodison. He'll be pretty pleased with what he has seen.

Bellew against Lukaku in the ring? Now I'd pay to watch that.

Everton 1-0 Hull

Hull have serious work to do. They have yet to test Joel Robles and have only just won their first corner.

Everton 1-0 Hull

Schneiderlin to Barkley to Coleman to Gueye to Davies...Everton are passing the ball around with so much confidence outside the Hull area.

Another chance but this time Dominic Calvert-Lewin can't get a touch as the ball flashes past him just outside the six-yard area. Any sort of a touch and that would have been 2-0.

Everton 1-0 Hull

Dominic Calvert-Lewin is loving this. Two seasons ago he was on loan at non-League Stalybridge Celtic. Today, he's causing Hull's defence all sorts of problems. The 20-year-old wins his side two quick free-kicks - both fouls by Andrea Ranocchia who somehow manages to avoid a yellow card.

Everton 1-0 Hull

No real threat from Romelu Lukaku so far but no sign of fan unrest towards the striker after it was revealed he had turned down the most lucrative contract offer in the club's history.

Everton 1-0 Hull

Hull have threatened the Everton defence on two or three occasions. Sam Clucas almost plays in Lazar Markovic but Everton just about scramble the ball away.

How Markovic, who is on loan from Liverpool, would love to score here. 

Everton 1-0 Hull

The 'as it stands' table makes great reading for Toffees fans. 

Everton are level on points with fifth-placed Arsenal.

Moment to remember

Everton 1-0 Hull

What was I saying about a slow Everton start? Forget that. The Toffees take the lead thanks as two of their up and coming talents combine.

The move starts with Morgan Schneiderlin before Ross Barkley plays in teenager Tom Davies who puts a cross in for Dominic Calvert-Lewin to tap home.

A moment to remember for the 20-year-old.
