Everton produced a stunning late comeback, twice clawing themselves back from behind to earn a memorable 3-2 victory away at West Ham.

In a poor first half, especially for the visitors, Ravel Morrison provided the Hammers with an opening goal, after his shot took a fortuitous deflection off Phil Jagielka.

Some presumably harsh words from Roberto Martinez ensured Everton emerged far more energised after the break. They eventually drew level on the hour mark, thanks to a viscous free-kick from Leighton Baines, and pressed for an advantage.
