West Ham United v Everton is LIVE on talkSPORT

"I'm really pleased with the way we played". That pipe dream will be denied due to Everton not winning away from Goodison Park since January.

Then James Collins took centre stage at each end - launching himself to cut out a unsafe centre before venturing into the other box to head Lanzini's cross the wrong side of the post.

In a scrappy opening, the first shot on target came after 28 minutes as Nordveit's long-range effort was comfortably gathered by Stekelenburg.

Everton had a late claim for a penalty turned down when Collins tugged Ashley Williams' shirt as they challenged for a corner, while Jose Fonte headed straight at Stekelenburg for West Ham as neither side managed to produce a dramatic conclusion to an uninspiring contest. Bilic's team were going for the victory that would have taken them up to the magical 40 points barrier, but a lack of quality in their attacking lineup meant only a point could be saved. Substitutes: Diafra Sakho (for Calleri, 61 minutes) 6, Aaron Cresswell (for Kouyate, 78 mins) 6.

In fact 22 points have been shed that way this season - the most by any club.

Perhaps the Dutchman made the wrong selection, having hauled off Tom Davies and Idrissa Gueye at the interval after a very poor collective 45-minute showing.

Not that Lukaku's level of application was unstinting.

The former Besiktas boss stressed the need for his side to cut the supply line to Lukaku, but knows that is easier said than done. He blazed down the left-hand side of Everton's defence, beating two defenders yet could not get past a third as Collins hurriedly cleared.

Collins also nodded wide from a decent position and Kouyate, the match victor here against Swansea City in the Hammers' last home league outing, miscued a shot wide from 25 yards out.

The Hammers are still not mathematically out of the relegation fight and the West Ham goalkeeper feels that they have to keep chipping away until the end of the campaign.

"Swansea won the game and Hull won the game so it's still not sorted".

Bilic's future is even less secure after a painfully inconsistent season in charge. Everton never looked like getting one and Lanzini could only fire straight at their keeper when he did get an opportunity to break the deadlock.

But West Ham continued their momentum and Lanzini was in the thick of the action again. Everton may have been ponderous but the energy of their opponents was a significant contributor to that.
