EVERTON missed a great chance to put pressure on the top four in a genuine contender for worst game of the 2016-17 season against West Ham.
During the clash at the London Stadium, neither side ever threatened with just two shots on target in the entire game – with the most excitement coming as Pixie Lott performed at half-time.
While Ronald Koeman’s Toffees dominated possession, it was Slaven Bilic’s who looked the more likely to score.

Everton move above Arsenal on goal difference with that point, but have played three more games than the Gunners.
Meanwhile, West Ham stay in 13th, just five points above 17th-placed Hull.
