  1. Thanks and goodbye

    Everton 1-0 Stoke

    So it is three more points for Ronald Koeman's Everton side, who remain unbeaten in competitive games since the Dutchman took over.

    For Stoke, it is one draw and two defeats from their start to the season. Everton deserved the win, but it came in controversial circumstances with a contentious penalty. The quotes could well be lively from Mark Hughes later on.

    Thanks for joining us, bye for now.

  3. Post update

    Everton 1-0 Stoke

    Everton are still attacking, time is running out for Stoke. It will be one point from three games unless they can snatch an equaliser.

  4. Post update

    Everton 1-0 Stoke

    Four minutes of stoppage time. Nervous moments ahead for the home fans.

  5. Post update

    Everton 1-0 Stoke

    Gareth Barry is booked and Yannick Bolasie comes off with 18-year-old midfielder Tom Davies coming on. Can Stoke get a dramatic equaliser?

    Arouna Kone misses a chance for a second Everton goal. He sprinted down the right wing and cut in on to his left foot, but his shot went harmlessly over the top.


    Everton's Ross Barkley goes off to a richly-deserved warm reception, with Ramiro Funes Mori coming on to tighten things up.

  7. Post update

    Everton 1-0 Stoke

    So close to a second for the hosts. Yannick Bolasie, looking for his first Everton goal, is played in by Gareth Barry but curls a shot from the edge of the penalty area just wide.

    That would've wrapped up the game, but Stoke still have hope.


    Everton 1-0 Stoke

    The England manager may have left, but Ross Barkley has just come close to extending his side's lead. He breaks through the defence but is denied by Shay Given, who came off his line quickly to stop the shot.

    Within seconds, Stoke have a great chance. Marko Arnautovic's pull-back is only inches ahead of substitute Jon Walters, who would've had a tap-in if he could have reached the pass.

  9. Post update

    Everton 1-0 Stoke

    Sam Allardyce has seen enough. The England boss is leaving, but will have been impressed by the performances of Stoke's Ryan Shawcross and Everton midfielder Ross Barkley.

    Leighton Baines and Phil Jagielka have not done much wrong, and Allardyce will have liked the look of 19-year-old defender Mason Holgate. Definitely one for the future.


    Everton 1-0 Stoke

    The hugely-impressive Kevin Mirallas has gone off to a standing ovation from the home fans.

    Arouna Kona, who scored twice against Yeovil in the EFL Cup in midweek, comes on as Everton look to kill this game off.


    Everton 1-0 Stoke

    Mark Hughes has had enough. Jon Walters comes on with Peter Crouch the man who, grudgingly, comes off.

    Crouch cleared an Ashley Williams header off the line, but did not too much up front for Stoke.

  12. Post update

    Everton 1-0 Stoke

    A good game this one now. At one end Ross Barkley's effort is parried by Shay Given, before Stoke sprint down the other end, only to be let down by the final ball into the box.

  13. Unlucky Shay

    Everton 1-0 Stoke

    Shay Given scored an own goal against Everton while playing for Newcastle in October 2007. Newcastle won the game 3-2.

    At the moment, the goalkeeper is the very unfortunate match winner.

    Everton 1-0 Stoke

    Mike: Honestly why does this count as an own goal? Unfair on both the attacker and the keeper.

    Christine Foxley: Never a penalty, football is now a non-contact sport.


    Everton 1-0 Stoke

    Stoke, who have offered so little going forward today, are nearly instantly level from nowhere.

    Marko Arnautovic manages to wriggle free in the penalty area and shoot at goal, but the ball ricochets up off the legs of Maarten Stekelenburg on to the crossbar and away.

  16. How it stand

    Yes, yes, it is only early in the season. But Everton fans will like this picture.

    It was a good save. I feel for Shay Given.  

  18. GOAL - Shay Given own goal

    Everton 1-0 Stoke

    Leighton Baines is the luckiest man in Goodison Park. His penalty is pushed on to the foot of the post but the ball then rebounds off the back of Shay Given's head and into the net. Everton lead. It is a deserved lead, but a controversial penalty.

    Leighton Baines
  19. PENALTY for Everton

    Drama at Goodison Park. Ashley Williams tumbles as he and Phil Bardsley are both running towards the near post as a corner is taken.

    The Stoke players are not happy, but referee Michael Oliver points to the spot. Leighton Baines to take the penalty.

  20. CLOSE!

    Wonderful defending from Ryan Shawcross has kept it 0-0 after Romelu Lukaku linked up with Mason Holgate
