Result: Everton too strong for West Ham United

Kevin Mirallas scores twice against West Ham United as David Moyes wins his final game in charge of Everton at Goodison Park.

Everton have registered a comfortable 2-0 victory over West Ham United at home in the Premier League.

The game was manager David Moyes's last in charge of the Blues at Goodison Park before he leaves the Merseyside outfit for Manchester United in the summer.

The hosts surged ahead in the sixth minute through Kevin Mirallas, who combined with Leighton Baines and Steven Pienaar before unleashing an unstoppable shot from 18 yards.

Two minutes later Everton could have doubled their advantage when Darron Gibson tried his luck from outside the West Ham box, but failed to keep his effort on target.

The Toffees continued to dominate proceedings at Goodison as the first half progressed, Victor Anichebe and Leon Osman both testing goalkeeper Jussi Jaaskelainen and his defence.

West Ham got back into the game thereafter as Mohamed Diame and Kevin Nolan threatened to breach Tim Howard's citadel, before Everton defender Sylvain Distin headed Mirallas's corner just wide in the 38th minute.

The hosts continued to have the upper hand in the second half and went 2-0 ahead on the hour mark, Mirallas scoring his second goal of the afternoon after collecting Gibson's pass and getting it in with the deflection off of James Collins.

That proved to be the final goal at Goodison as Everton cruised to all three points.
