West Ham United 2-1 Everton


West Ham United 2-1 Everton

West Ham

West Ham closes the gap on the fourth spot with a 2-1 victory over Everton after a superb first-half free-kick from Cresswell.

Before Holgate equalised shortly after the break, however, the visitors were only level for five minutes as Bowen marked his return to the side with a goal.

After Pickford had superbly denied Antonio, the rebound fell straight to the winger.

It then went from bad to worse for Everton on 65 minutes, when Keane was shown a second yellow for a late foul on Antonio, and the visitors had to play the remainder of the game with 10-men.

WEST HAM, TAKE THE LEAD! Cresswell steps up to take a free-kick outside the penalty area, whips the ball over the Everton wall, and curls it straight into the top right corner of the net! Superb set-piece, and he makes it 1-0.

EVERTON EQUALISE! Holgate makes it 1-1. Fabianski tries to punch a corner clear but doesn’t get enough on it, and it falls to Richarlison, who flicks it back to Holgate, and he volleys the ball towards goal. It takes a slight deflection off Fornals and flies into the bottom right corner.

WEST HAM, GO BACK AHEAD! Bowen marks his return to the side with a goal! Iwobi loses the ball in midfield, and the West Ham counter quickly, with Antonio released on goal, and he only had Pickford to beat, but the Everton keeper made a superb save. However, Bowen kept up with his teammate and converted the rebound, sliding the ball into the back of an empty net. It’s 2-1.

So, what’s next?

This win moves the Hammers up to fifth, three points behind Arsenal, who occupy fourth position and the final Champions League spot.

They will now turn their attentions to the Europa League, as they face Lyon in midweek, before returning to league action against Brentford next weekend.

Meanwhile, Everton remains deep in trouble at the other end, they are 17th, just three points above the relegation zone, and they face Burnley next Wednesday.
