Alex Iwobi did not make Everton’s matchday squad for the Premier League game against West Ham due to injury.
The Toffees suffered a home defeat after Tomas Soucek scored a late winner for West Ham as they secured a 1-0 win at Goodison Park.
Aaron Cresswell’s shot deflected off Everton defender Yerry Mina into the path of Soucek, who tapped home in the 85th minute of an uneventful game.
Victory ended a run of four successive defeats at his former club for West Ham manager David Moyes.
Everton, who had won their previous four league games, missed out on climbing to second in the table as they stay in fourth position on 29 points.
The win took West Ham to 10th on 26 points in the league table.
