West Brom v Everton

Everton's final away game of the 2010/11 season ended in defeat at West Bromwich Albion.

Youssouf Mulumbu's 10th minute goal was enough for the Baggies, while there was further woe for the Blues when Diniyar Bilyaletdinov was ordered off late on, just minutes after entering the fray as a substitute.

The result means Everton can finish no higher than seventh place and must still be wary of teams below them in the table.West Brom, and in particular Odemwingie, started well and the Nigerian latched on to Mulumbu's long ball only to fire into the side netting.

And the pair combined again moments later for the opening goal as Odemwingie capitalised on hesitation in the Everton defence, raced to the byline and centred for Mulumbu to poke home.

Everton's first response came 15 minutes in when Victor Anichebe turned his defender and bore down on goal only for Scott Carson to save with an outstretched boot.

Jagielka and Coleman threatened either side of a Chris Brunt free-kick and then another Anichebe effort was deflected wide midway through the half.

John Heitinga missed a decent aerial chance before Hibbert's goal-line clearance and Howard's smart save kept the visitors in it.

Another Anichebe effort brought the best from Carson towards the end of the period and after the break Phil Neville and Mikel Arteta had efforts blocked in a mad moment of pinball.

Soon Jermaine Beckford was on for Coleman but the action returned to the other end as Paul Scharner headed into the side netting in the 65th minute.

David Moyes then made his second change, bringing on Diniyar Bilyaletdinov for Arteta and the Russian promptly blasted a decent chance over.

New man Bilyaletdinov blasted over from 12 yards but, in an event that summed up the afternoon, was then harshly sent off for a challenge on James Morrison.

Everton's ten remaining men tried hard but in truth Albion's counter attacking football was the bigger threat.
