West Ham fight back to secure 2-2 draw with Brighton

Neither side covered themselves in defensive glory in the capital as errors at both ends led to an exciting climax.

It was the visitors that dominated the first 45 minutes, with Danny Welbeck lashing an effort past the post, before Neil Maupay edged them in front before the break.

Dan Burn’s low cross caused problems in the Hammers box and Maupay stay alert to fire past Lukasz Fabianksi.

David Moyes threw on Andriy Yarmolenko and Manuel Lanzini after the break and the pair combined superbly to set up Ben Johnson’s first ever senior goal for the club.

Yarmolenko’s clever ball released Lanzini inside the area and his cutback was cushioned home by Johnson.

But despite growing into the ascendency in the final 20, West Ham shot themselves in the foot, as Lewis Dunk hauled Brighton back in front.

Solly March’s whipped cross caught the Hammers defence fast asleep from a corner and Dunk wriggled free to blast home.

But in the spirit of the season Potter’s team returned the favour to Moyes with another defensive clanger as Tomas Soucek powered home for a point.

Sheffield United’s Premier League misery continues as West Ham win 1-0 at Bramall Lane

The Blades remained rooted to the foot of the table, after no wins in nine, whilst the Hammers picked up their first away win since October.

The hosts carved out the better chances in the opening exchanges, with George Baldock and Oli McBurnie forcing early stops from Lukasz Fabianski.

David Moyes’ side did grow into the game before the break, as United began to turn the screw, but Tomas Soucek nodded over their best chance.

The Blades continued to have the upper hand after the break, as David McGoldrick tested Fabianksi, but their familiar lack of cutting edge was exposed on the hour.

Oli Norwood lost possession in midfield as Declan Rice slipped in Sebastien Haller outside the box, and the Malian fired an unstoppable effort past Aaron Ramsdale.

That goal knocked some of the life out of Chris Wilder’s team, as West Ham pushed for a second.

And Rice was inches away from securing the game as his header hit the bar on another frustrating afternoon for the Blades.

With Fulham clinging on in the opening stages they had the woodwork to thank on 10 minutes as Sebastien Haller’s header beat Areola but thumped back off the bar.

After withstanding that early wave of pressure, Fulham did grow into the game before the break as Aleksandr Mitrovic headed wide.

But it was to be the hosts that retook control after the break as Areola launched an early contender for save of the season.

Aaron Creswell’s drive free kick flew over the wall but the Frenchman produced an outrageous stop to tip into onto the bar.

Scott Parker’s side once again began to tiptoe into the game in the final 20 as Ademola Lookman and Bobby Reid tested Lukasz Fabianksi.

However, just as the game looked to be creeping towards a disappointing goalless draw, Soucek popped up in the right place at the right time in the Fulham box.

Haller’s cross was only half cleared by Fulham and Said Benrahma poked a pass into the Czech international and he confidently stroked home into the bottom corner.

But continuing the theme of last gasp drama, Fulham were handed a 95th minute penalty.

Mitrovic stepped aside to let Lookman take responsibility from the spot, but his limp Panenka was casually saved by Fabianksi, with Parker left fuming on the touchline.

Liverpool did look to launch a response before the break with Trent Alexander-Arnold almost catching out Lukasz Fabianksi and Andy Robertson firing over.

But just as West Ham were gifted an opening goal, Liverpool were given a massive helping hand for their equaliser just before the break.

Masuaku tangled with Mo Salah inside the box and despite any contact appearing minimal, referee Kevin Friend pointed to the spot, and the Egyptian tucked home.

The Reds looked to take up the initiative after the break as Klopp threw on Jota and Xherdan Shaqiri.

West Ham secured dramatic late 3-3 Premier League draw at Tottenham

Kane and Son looked to have this game wrapped up with three goals inside the first 15 minutes but an incredible late comeback from the Hammers secured a dramatic draw.

Spurs have been quick starters recent weeks but Son’s 45 second opener flew past Lukasz Fabianksi before Jose Mourinho had even taken his seat.

And there was no letting up from the hosts as West Ham simply froze in the opening stages.

The Son and Kane dream team linked up again on four minutes as Kane rolled away from Fabien Balbuena and powered home.

And with the Hammers still rocking from Kane’s first goal, he added his second on 15 minutes.

Son freed Sergio Reguilon in behind and the Spaniard’s cross into the box was bulleted home by Kane.

With Spurs in danger of running riot after the break, Moyes was forced to change his approach after the break and Pablo Fornals missed a massive opportunity after the restart.

Mourinho threw on Gareth Bale for his second Spurs debut and the Welshman almost made an immediate impact as Kane hammered his pass against the post.

West Ham sensed their chance following that miss as Balbuena powered home Aaron Cresswell’s corner.

That threw the cat amongst the pigeons for Spurs in the final minutes as Davinson Sanchez sliced Vladimir Coufal’s cross past Hugo Lloris.

And just as Spurs looked primed to hang on in the final seconds Manuel Lanzini nailed in an absolute thunderbolt.

Bukayo Saka’s quick ball released Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, the Gunners skipper hung up an inviting cross, and Lacazette powered past Lukasz Fabianksi.

But with Arsenal unable to build on Lacazette’s opener, the pragmatic Hammers found a deserved equaliser just before the break.

Ryan Fredricks showed pace to burst in behind Saka and the squared for Antonio to poke past Bernd Leno.

The Hammers were the better side after the break, with Leno called into action to bravely deny Antonio and former Hull City winger Jarrod Bowen.

David Moyes’ side certainly looked the more likely to nick a winner, but Arsenal again showed a killer instinct in front of goal, as substitute Nketiah latched onto Dani Ceballos’ pass to curl past Fabianski.

West Ham United 1-1 Aston Villa: Villa secure Premier League survival at West Ham

With Watford losing away at Arsenal, Dean Smith’s side have survived by the skin of their teeth in a dramatic final 15 minutes at the London Stadium.

The tension was palpable right from kick off in East London, with the Villa bench spending much of the game checking for updates elsewhere.

Villa did create more in a nervy first half, with Mbwana Samatta testing Lukasz Fabianksi.

But as the nerves began to creep up after the break, Villa allowed the Hammers back into the game, as Michail Antonio wasted a brilliant chance.

Skipper Jack Grealish did look to have had ahead his Roy of the Rovers moment, as he fired home John McGinn’s pass with five to go.

But Villa fans have learnt to things the hard way this season, as Grealish deflected home Andriy Yarmolenko’s strike for an instant equaliser.

Dean Smith was torn between his team and his tablet in the closing minutes, but in the end, his side and just just enough to hold on.
