Everton raised the pressure on director Marco Silva having a win over West Ham United at Goodison Park.
Silva is fighting ease doubts following four straight Premier League beats dove Everton into the relegation zone – but this is a excellent screen to earn three points that are key.
He made five changes from the side that lost in Burnley and has been rewarded with a piece of individual brilliance from remembered Brazilian Bernard, who tricked his way to the West Ham place before beating keeper Roberto Jimenez using a smart end after 17 minutes to set Everton in his way.
Roberto produced a succession of nice saves from Tom Davies and Alex Iwobi, while Richarlison hit the woodwork although everton had numerous chances to expand their benefit. It had been at stoppage time that replacement Gylfi Sigurdsson, since he turned into Evertons record # 45m enrolling in summer 2017 fell for the first time, ended any doubts regarding the outcome with a magnificent 25-yard climbing right-foot drive.
West Ham were downright dreadful during, their one minute of threat coming after Angelo Ogbonnas shot was blocked by Everton keeper Jordan Pickford on as Silva was eventually able to celebrate a success which delighted Goodison Park.
Silva took action that was positive against the walls with his back so warrants full charge as Everton made their very best performance of the year to overpower West Ham United.
He fell Sigurdsson, who could have no complaints after his bad form this year, brought back Theo Walcott and also pushed on Richarlison.
Silva re-introduced Davies alongside Andre Gomes into central midfield and gave Iwobi the amount 10 role in supporting the striker.
The result has been an Everton performance full of imagination, hard work and energy which should have significantly improved a success margin that is much greater than it actually did.
It was West Ham goalkeeper Robertos excellence, making a series of saves and calling on the assistance of the woodwork, that kept the score in rationale.
A raucous Goodison Park crowd that not wavered in its support for the team of Silva on the front foot, backed everton.
It takes more than a where you setback ratchets up the pressure as hes reached that critical stage win to blow away the clouds over Silva.
The sounds indicate he still needs to follow this up with a win at Brighton and at home to Watford at The Carabao Cup.
That, however, was precisely what he had – a crowd-pleasing triumph in which Everton responded to promptings and the directors modifications.
West Ham should have their sights set on top six in this year of Premier League flux, with Spurs struggling and Chelsea, Manchester United and Arsenal in stages of comparative transition.
They possess an abysmal inconsistency that threatens to violate those aspirations.
Yes, they can throw in the occasional excellent success since they did against Manchester United – though that currency is devalued these days – but then they are ashamed in The Carabao Cup at League One Oxford United, shed at home to Crystal Palace subsequently deliver this shocking show at Goodison Park.
It would have been an act of grand larceny if they had come close to interrogate a point here.
Manager Manuel Pellegrini stood motionless in his technical area, actions mirrored by the majority of his staff since they lacked vitality, ideas and hazard.
In what was a screen lacking advantage and heart Just keeper Roberto emerged with any sort of credit.
If these hopes should be realised, then they cant perform similar to this on many more events.
More to follow.
