Goals: West Ham 2-1 Everton

West Ham United returned to the Premier League’s top five and recharged their challenge for European qualification with an eventful 2-1 victory over Everton at London Stadium on Sunday.

Aaron Cresswell’s unstoppable free-kick and a smartly-taken finish from the fit-again Jarrod Bowen settled matters, albeit Mason Holgate’s equaliser meant David Moyes’ side had to work hard for their win over Frank Lampard’s struggling Blues, who finished the game with ten men following Michael Keane’s red card.

As it was, West Ham’s first goal from a direct free-kick since Cresswell netted against Manchester United 101 games ago in September 2019 and a trademark counter-attack led by Michail Antonio and converted by Bowen broke Everton’s spirited resistance and lifted the hosts back above Tottenham Hotspur – who welcomed Newcastle United later on Sunday – Manchester United and Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Academy of Football graduate Lampard’s Everton, meanwhile, are now 12 away top-flight matches without a win and remain nervously looking over their shoulders in 17th place.
