  1. That's all for the live commentary from Goodison Park, thanks for joining us. Don't forget to check back for a full match report, player ratings and reaction shortly.

  2. Mark Clattenburg blows for full-time and Everton are 2-1 winners after a thoroughly enjoyable game. Romelu Lukaku's goal proved to be the winner after Gaston Ramirez had cancelled out Seamus Coleman's first-half strike. 2-1.

  3. 90+3

    Seconds left on the clock now as Everton look to keep the ball as close to the Southampton corner flag as possible. Mirallas wins a throw.

  4. 90+2

    Steven Naismith is receiving treatment for a head injury after colliding with Lovren. He's back on his feet and should be able to continue.

  5. 90+1

    Ramirez lofts a free-kick into the box, Lovren climbs to meet it but misses his header and it goes behind for a goalkick.

  6. 90

    There will be three minutes of added time to be played with Everton currently defending deep.

  7. 89

    The corner falls to Baines on the edge of the area, although his strike is somewhat erratic and it flies over the bar.

  8. 88

    Big chance for Everton to kill to game off! Mirallas' scuffs his shot into the path of Lukaku, the striker diverts it goal-bound but Davis does well to get down low and palm it behind for a corner.

  9. 87

    Change for Southampton as Calum Chambers makes way for Nathaniel Clyne.

  10. 86

    Ramirez floats the free-kick towards the back-post where Lambert meets it with his head. There's a call for handball against Disitn but Clattenburg waves it away.

  11. 85

    Lukaku hauls down Fonte midway in the Everton half and Southampton are awarded a free-kick in a potential shooting position. Ramirez and Lallana eye it.

  12. 84

    Alcaraz has had a good Everton debut so far and he cuts in ahead of Rodriguez to clear their lines after a searching through-ball.

  13. 83

    Southampton make a change with young striker Sam Gallagher replacing James Ward-Prowse.

  14. 82

    Luke Shaw rifles a strike over the bar from wide on the left after the loose ball fell to him. That was always rising. Everton goalkick.

  15. 80

    Southampton are attempting to pile on the pressure now, there's some great play by Lallana and Rodriguez before Barkley muscles in to get the clearance.

  16. 79

    Lukaku comes close to adding to his tally for the afternoon after shimmying his way past Ramirez, Ward-Prowse and then Lovren, only to fire over the bar. Great piece of trickery from the big striker.

  17. 77

    Barkley blocks Ramirez' strike before Alcaraz heads behind for a Southampton corner. This is compelling.

  18. 75

    James McCarthy is shown a yellow card for a late challenge on Jay Rodriguez.

  19. 74

    What a breath-taking few minutes of play. Everton have somehow regained the lead despite waves of Southampton pressure, unstoppable finish from Lukaku.

  20. 72

    GOAL! Everton are back ahead through Romelu Lukaku! The striker latches onto James McCarthy's precise ball in and he emphatically sweeps it past Davis to end his barren run of five games without a goal. 2-1.
