West Ham moved out of the relegation zone on Sunday afternoon as they defeated Everton 3-1 at Goodison Park.
The Hammers headed into the game in a dire run of form, having lost all four of their opening Premier League fixtures. Everton, meanwhile, were hoping to get back to winning ways after drawing their previous two matches.
It was West Ham who took the lead in the first half, though as Marko Arnautovic provided Andriy Yarmolenko with a simple tap-in on his full Premier League debut.
Yarmolenko then added insult to injury against the club he nearly signed for in previous transfer windows as he curled a wonderful effort beyond the reach of Jordan Pickford in the Everton net, making it 2-0 to the visitors.
On the stroke of half-time, the Toffees pulled a goal back courtesy of Gylfi Sigurdsson’s header but saw their efforts amount to nothing, as Arnautovic finished a slick move in the second half to secure a 3-1 win.
It was an impressive display from Manuel Pellegrini’s side as they won their first game of the new Premier League season. Here are our player ratings.
