Hammers grab three points at last

By Hughie Southon

Hammers 2 Everton 0

Jarrod Bowen’s double strike gave the Hammers what was ultimately a comfortable victory over the Toffees to lift the Iron into 15th place level on points with Leicester City.

In what was billed as a sack race match between bosses Frank Lampard and David Moyes, the Irons came out on top courtesy of a first Bowen goal from a hopeful Emerson cross and a second from a magnificent run and cross from Antonio.

It could easily have been more had a Declan Rice shot not dribbled past a far post and Pickford not making a magnificent save.

Make no mistake Everton are a very poor side but worried the Hammers for 2o minutes at the start of the second half.

However, defensively Aguerd and Oggy in particular, did a great job and Zouma was looking good although appeared to take a knock which left him hobbling.

Paqueta though will need to raise his game if the Hammers are to reach the expected levels and the team as a whole must up the tempo  in general after another slow start which has become the norm this term.

However, a win is a win and will raise confidence ahead of a series of tricky games which will require real intensity from the lads.

  1. Good win. Awful football.

    • Summed it up for me too master. They had all the ball and I don’t like watching this WHU but loved the win with relief

  2. Trouble is Everton had enough chances. Given a better side we could have lost it. Moyes has to go, we are going to have to play Class teams and we cannot win with him.

  3. Moyes must surely be gone now. Everton are a dire team but still could have won the game. Our performance was dire, as bad as Everton uf not worse, one win in 3 months in the league not good enough and the dreadful performances on top of this. Moyes will be sacked and if the board have any football knowledge they make that decision now. He should fave even sacked at the start of the world cup and if he was I firmly believe we would be in a better position in the league. Dont make the same mistake again and act now.
