Manuel Lanzini puts West Ham 1-0 ahead

West Ham moved up to fifth in the Premier League despite having to settle for a point at home to Everton.

Manuel Lanzini put the Hammers ahead with a superb curling finish after Victor Moses' shot was blocked.

But Romelu Lukaku ran on to Gerard Deulofeu's perfect pass to level and extend his run of scoring against West Ham to seven successive games.

Winston Reid headed over for the Hammers and Lukaku went close late on but neither side could force a winner.

Lukaku happy to face the Hammers

Lukaku's remarkable run against the Hammers started on 21 September 2013, when he scored his first goal for Everton, the winner in a 3-2 Toffees victory.

Roberto Martinez hails 'terrific' performance

The £28m Belgium striker has scored the decisive goal on two further occasions against the east London side and, on top of two goals in FA Cup ties, this was the 11th point his strikes have helped secure for Everton in this fixture.

"That is my game, going in behind and trying to be clinical in a one-on-one," Lukaku said afterwards. "It was a great ball from Gerard and the finish was good.

"I am happy but I play to win games and I am disappointed not to win."

Payet injury a concern for West Ham

West Ham had scored at least two goals in nine of their 11 league matches going into Saturday's game but, as soon as Dimitri Payet hobbled off shortly after half-time, they looked far less dangerous.

Payet tried to continue after he was hurt by a James McCarthy challenge before the break, but his injured ankle lasted only five minutes of the second half.

The French play-maker had fashioned three openings during his time on the pitch, putting him level with Arsenal's Mesut Ozil as the players to have created the most chances - 47 - in the Premier League this season.

West Ham boss Slaven Bilic said afterwards: "We lost Payet because of a bad tackle. We can only hope that he will be OK and it is not going to be long-term, but we have to wait for the scan."

Without Payet, the Hammers struggled to break down the Everton defence, although Moses impressed down the right flank.

The threat Moses posed was as much to do with his pace and industry as any silky skills, but he was behind his side's goal and also got on the end of crosses when they were put in from the opposite flank.

But Andy Carroll was never able to make his presence felt in the box and, too often, the Hammers' promising build-up play went to waste.

Manager reaction

West Ham boss Slaven Bilic: "We are never happy with one point, especially at home, but I was happy with the performance.

West Ham 1-1 Everton: Slaven Bilic urges Hammers to shoot more

"We needed that kind of positive reaction after what happened last week at Watford.

"Everton deserved a point but in my opinion we were slightly better than them."

Everton manager Roberto Martinez: "Once we got to grips with the intensity West Ham play with, I thought we were very strong, especially in the second half.

"Our concentration levels were very high once we had conceded, and we worked very hard as a unit defensively.

"We had quality going forward too and it seemed the winning goal would come but we just could not find the final pass."

What next?

After the international break, Everton host Aston Villa and West Ham make the short trip to north London to play Tottenham.
