  1. The final whistle goes and Everton have run out deserved 3-1 winners after inflicting the damage on Southampton during a 15-minute blitz in the first half. The Toffees remain very much among the leading pack in the Premier League, while Southampton appear to be facing a tough season after going down to a fifth defeat in six league games.

  2. 90+1

    Leon Osman acknowledges the applause from the crowd as David Moyes shores things up further by bringing on Sylvain Distin.

  3. 90

    Three minutes of stoppage time have been signalled, as Everton look to take the sting out of the game by passing it around in midfield.

  4. 89

    Nigel Adkins gives it one last throw of the dice as Adam Lallana goes off to be replaced by Richard Chaplow for the closing stages.

  5. 87

    Leon Osman hurts himself after sliding in for a challenge on James Ward-Prowse which was badly mistimed. Luckily the Southmapton player is okay, while Osman is also fine to continue.

  6. 86

    Leighton Baines tries to swing in a cross but gets it all wrong and it nearly turns into a fantastic shot, but Paulo Gazzaniga stays alert to turn the ball over his bar and concede a corner.

  7. 84

    A goal now would make things really interesting and Rickie Lambert comes close for Southampton as he aims a header at goal which forces Tim Howard to move to his right quickly and parry the ball away.

  8. 83

    There is a growing sense of desperation about Southampton's attempts at goal as the clock ticks down, with Gaston Ramirez blazing over from 25 yards.

  9. 81

    Nigel Adkins responds with a double change of his own, bringing on Emmanuel Mayuka and Ben Reeves for Nathaniel Clyne and Jay Rodriguez.

  10. 79

    Kevin Mirallas has made a tremendous impact since his summer arrival and gets a deserved round of applause as he makes way for another new boy, Bryan Oviedo.

  11. 77

    Marouane Fellaini can look unplayable at times and he has been in the mood ago this afternoon, showing great feet as well as his usual brawn.

  12. 75

    Nikica Jelavic will not be getting his hands on the match ball this afternoon as he is replaced by Victor Anichebe for the final quarter of an hour.

  13. 74

    Steven Pienaar has a chance to play in Marouane Fellaini but his pass is just too short and, although the midfielder wriggles free of his first defender, he cannot get past the second.

  14. 72

    Having stemmed the tide, Southampton are now starting to press hard in an attempt to get back into this game and the crowd have gone quiet.

  15. 70

    Gaston Ramirez makes a great run to latch on to Rickie Lambert's pass and dinks a delightful shot over Tim Howard from close range, only to see the ball drift narrowly wide of the far past.

  16. 69

    Gaston Ramirez decides to go for goal from 25 yards and it is an ambitious effort which Tim Howards gets safely in behind and saves with ease.

  17. 68

    Paulo Gazzaniga has had a busy shift this afternoon and he pulls of another smart save here, getting down to his right quickly to push away Kevin Mirallas' 20-yard strike.

  18. 66

    Southampton dwell too long on the ball in an advanced area and by the time Frazer Richardson finally delivers a right-wing cross the strikers in the centre are static.

  19. 64

    Gaston Ramirez tries to nod the ball on to Rickie Lambert but Tim Howard quickly rushes off his line and gets good distance on his punch.

  20. 62

    Jay Rodriguez lets fly with a cross-cum-shot from wide on the right which flashes across goal.
