Super Eagles forward Alex Iwobi was an unused substitute for Everton as the Toffees handed their qualification for Europe next season a huge boost following a 1-0 victory over West Ham at the London stadium.
The Nigerian international has played 28 Premier League games and scored just once in the current campaign with the goal coming in a 2-1 win at Wolves in January.
It was Dominic Calvert-Lewin 24th minute strike that proved decisive against the Hammers.
David Moyes side never really hit their stride on a crucial afternoon as they failed to register a single shot on target.
The closest West Ham came to an equaliser was when Vladimir Coufal’s shot hit the post and Jarrod Bowen could not bundle in the rebound from point-blank range.
Everton hit the post late on through Josh King and they hung on for the win that keeps them in the frame for a European spot.
The Hammers remained in fifth place with 58 points, five points behind fourth-placed Leicester City with three games remaining. Liverpool are only a point behind West Ham with a game in hand.
