• Osman joins '400 club' in style

    Everton 2 -1 West Ham United

    Leon Osman marked his 400th Everton appearance with the knockout blow in a testy encounter at Goodison Park as the Blues extended their unbeaten run to seven matches. Romelu Lukaku had rammed in the opener with 25 minutes gone after Ross Barkley's shot was blocked but substitute Mauro Zarate equalised via a heavy deflection 10 minutes after half time. A fractious affair could have gone either way until Samuel Eto'o finished a quick counter with a perfect centre that Osman slid home.

The manager indicated that McCarthy still hasn't trained after straining his hamstring against Sunderland nine days ago.
