But at least Lukaku didn’t score!

West Ham United and Everton drew to a scoreless draw Saturday afternoon at the London Stadium, as both sides couldn’t produce any quality in the final third.

The first half lacked a real moment on goal for both sides, as neither Adrian (no saves) nor Martin Stekelenburg (one save off a decent attempt from the solid Havard Nordtveit) were tested. Slaven Bilic gave Jonathan Calleri his first Premier League start, but the much maligned Argentine failed to be a threat with tentative decision making and imprecise movement.

Things would largely remain the same in the second half despite both teams having more opportunities to score. Substitutes for Bilic and Ronald Koeman tried their best to give the match a breakthrough, but neither side could muster anything of significance on goal.

West Ham now have just four games remaining on their schedule. They will venture next Saturday to face Stoke City in a mid-table clash.
