Check out this great piece of skill from West Ham’s Manuel Lanzini, one of the club’s standout players in yesterday’s goalless draw against Everton at the London Stadium, showing the Argentine attempting a rabona cross against Ronald Koeman’s side. Didn’t quite have the end result as Payet’s against Watford, but definitely worth a watch! [Read more…]

Andy Carroll has been ruled out of West Ham’s game at home against Everton after picking up a groin injury in last week’s 2-2 draw against Swansea. Carroll’s abductor muscle, a recurrent injury problem for the lanky striker, acted up again when his kick resulted in an assist for Andre Ayew at the Stadium of Light.
West Ham, who are already missing Michail Antonio to injury, might be forced to turn to Diafra Sakho, but Jonathan Calleri and Ashley Fletcher also remain options. Skipper Mark Noble and right back Sam Byram are both suspended for Everton’s visit to the London Stadium. [Read more…]
Mark Noble marked his 400th appearance for West Ham with a yellow card that will see him miss the club’s next two games against Sunderland (away) and Everton (home). Noble’s 39th minute foul on Swansea City’s Leroy Fer (a rather unnecessary one at that) saw him collect his 10th yellow of the season, which according to the current rules, earns him a two match ban.
The more frustrating fact- the league’s yellow card “amnesty” kicks in on the second Sunday of April (April 9, 2017 for this season), and if Noble had got through this game without being booked, he would’ve avoided the ban.
Noble’s foul came just seconds after Michail Antonio injured his hamstring, leading to the latter being stretchered off and replaced by Jonathan Calleri [Read more…]
Everton have completed the signing of Enner Valencia on loan from West Ham United for the rest of the season, with an option to make the deal permanent next summer for £14.5m.
Valencia was linked heavily with Swansea but has opted to move to Goodison Park. He joined West Ham from Pachuca two years ago for £12m.
Valencia will link up with the Toffees after the conclusion of his international commitments with Ecuador [Read more…]
Unbelievable scenes this afternoon at Goodison Park, as West Ham scored thrice in the last fifteen minutes to win against Everton after being 2-0 down. The winning goal, fittingly, was scored by newly crowned London Player of the Year Dimi Payet [Read more…]
