Valencia is also said to have West Ham, Inter Milan and a Chinese club as suitors if and when he makes a move in this summer's transfer window.

One of those was Bernard, who scored his first Premier League goal to put the Toffees 2-0 ahead, after Kurt Zouma had got the opener.

The East Londoners were awful throughout the game and the score-line would have been much higher had it not been for yet another solid display from Lukasz Fabianski in goal. The defensive midfielder has established himself as a mainstay in Manuel Pellegrini's side, notching up 29 Premier League appearances, in which he has scored twice and set up one more.

West Ham have six games left to play and now sit 11th, although two points separate Manuel Pellegrini's men from seventh.

Pellegrini's men will need to up their game as soon as possible if they want to challenge for a solid top half of the standings finish.

Carbon Tax Kicks In For New Brunswick, Ontario, Saskatchewan And Manitoba
Saskatchewan says it will not apply the provincial sales tax on top of the federal government's carbon tax on power bills. An Ontario court is set to hear the government's constitutional challenge of the carbon tax in April.

But Cresswell, stand-in skipper in the absence of Mark Noble, is determined not to let the season fizzle out.

"We're aiming for seventh place", he told the club's website.

But while seventh is within touching distance, West Ham face a major battle to achieve that spot, especially on current form.

The Brazilian's performance has been recognised by Gazzetta dello Sport, who have included him in their European Team of the Week. "Everton fully deserved the win".

"We weren't good enough throughout the whole game".
