In one of the more entertaining EPL matches of the weekend, Everton scored their second consecutive victory by way of a come from behind 3-2 win over 10 man West Ham at Upton Park. The Hammers led twice in the match with Ravel Morrison getting them off the mark on 31 minutes to give them a lead that lasted into half time. That was when the visitors introduced Chelsea loanee Romelu Lukaku to the match though, and it proved to be a decision that would turn the tables and certainly the momentum of the game. Leighton Baines scored the first of his 2 spectacular free kicks on the day in the 62nd to bring Everton level, but a Mark Noble penalty kick was (excuse the pun) hammered home only 14 minutes thereafter to regain the advantage for the home side. Baines authored yet another majestic goal from a dead ball situation in the 83rd after Mark Noble clumsily brought him down from behind, resulting in the West Ham captain’s second yellow of the game and reducing his side to 10 men just prior to Baines’ second. The pivotal point in the match came less than 2 minutes later as Lukaku bravely rose up in the West Ham penalty box to nod home a cross and get off the mark for his new side, not to mention also scoring score game’s winner in front of the traveling Merseyside support.
