In form West Ham fight back to win 2-1 at Leeds United

David Moyes’ side now have four wins in their last five games as a late goal from Angelo Ogbonna secured a vital three points in Yorkshire.

The home side were the quickest out of the traps in the opening stages as midfielder Matheusz Klich put from in front after four minutes.

Lukasz Fabianski tangled with Patrick Bamford to concede a rash spot kick and despite saving Klich first penalty.

Referee Michael Oliver penalised the Polish international for straying off his line and Klich confidently tucked home his second attempt.

That early goal opened the game up in the first half hour, with both keepers called into rapid action, before Tomas Soucek deservedly nodded West Ham level.

Jarrod Bowen swung a deep corner into far post and Soucek was too hot to handle in the box as he stooped to head past Illan Meslier.

That goal boosted the visitors confidence after the restart as Meslier bravely saved from Sebastien Haller.

Both sides did create chances to win it the final stages, but West Ham’s set piece power proved the difference again as Ogbonna headed home the winner.

Aaron Cresswell whipped free kick found the Italian in space inside Leeds’ box and he emphatically powered past Meslier.

Manchester United battle back to win 3-1 away at West Ham

United struggled to get going at the London Stadium but the half time introduction of Bruno Fernandes inspired Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side to a fourth straight league win.

It was the confident hosts who made the better start in East London with Pablo Fornals forcing a brave early stop from Dean Henderson.

The Spaniard continued to pose a threat, as his poked effort came back off the post, before Tomas Soucek deservedly put the Hammers in front.

Declan Rice flicked on Bowen’s corner and the Czech midfielder held off Alex Telles to scramble home from close range.

David Moyes’ side were then presented with a perfect to go in 2-0 up at half time, but Sebastien Haller lost hit nerve at the crucial moment.

Both sides looked busy after the restart, as Bowen was inches away from converting Vladimir Coufal’s cross, and Scott McTominay powered wide.

But with the visitors slowly edging themselves into the game, Paul Pogba produced a fantastic equaliser on 65 minutes.

Henderson’s sweeping clearance released Fernandes and his pull back was expertly swept home by Pogba.

That goal successfully tipped the balance in United’s favour as Mason Greenwood netted a quick-fire second shortly after.

Telles’ driven cross evaded a string of Hammers defenders and the teenager showed a Solskjaer-esque touch to slot past Lukasz Fabianski.

That strike opened the floodgates for a rampant United, as Marcus Rashford scuffed an effort against the post.

But the England international was not to be denied his big moment as he wrapped up the fight back with a superb finish from Juan Mata’s cross field pass.

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.

West Ham secure 1-1 Premier League draw at home to Manchester City

Moyes’ team staged a dramatic recovery to draw 3-3 at Tottenham last weekend and they survive a late scare to snatch a draw in this one.

Neither side created much in a scrappy opening at the London Stadium before Michail Antonio ruthlessly put the Hammers in front on 18 minutes.

Vladimir Coufal whipped in a cross from the right and Antonio was too strong for Aymeric Laporte as volleyed past Ederson.

City struggled to respond to that setback with tame efforts from Riyad Mahrez and Sergio Aguero failing to test Lukasz Fabianski.

Pep Guardiola threw on Phil Foden at the break in an attempt to turn the tide and the England international produced an instant equaliser.

Joao Cancelo’s cross was just behind him but he showed brilliant calmness to tuck past Fabianski.

That tipped the balance in City’s favour as Guardiola brought on Kevin De Bruyne to try and turn the screw on West Ham.

Sterling was presented with a brilliant late late chance to win it but Fabianski stayed sharp to preserve a vital point.

Arsenal snatch late 2-1 Premier League win at home to West Ham

Alexandre Lacazette netted for the second game running, but Michail Antonio first half equaliser set up a nervy second period, before Eddie Nketiah stole all three points late on.

Both sides struggled to create any meaningful rhythm in the opening stages, but Arsenal showed their efficiency as Lacazette buried their first chance on 25 minutes.

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 fans delighted as Roberto nears London Stadium exit

The Spanish stopper is said to be close to completing a switch to the La Liga side according to newspaper the Guardian.

Roberto spent the second half of the 2019/20 campaign on loan at Alaves in Spain’s top flight, after a disastrous start to the season between the sticks for West Ham.

After Lukasz Fabianski’s injury, then-Hammers manager Manuel Pellegrini turned to the 34-year-old to deputise – and it backfired horrifically, with Roberto shipping 21 goals in just 10 games for the club, mustering a single clean sheet.

Things weren’t much better post January, either, with new boss David Moyes immediately loaning Roberto, where he shelled 19 times in just 9 appearances as Alaves narrowly avoided relegation from La Liga.

Now Roberto’s time at West Ham appears to be coming to an end, much to the delight of many a Hammers fan on social media, who appear to be glad to see the back of arguably their worst goalkeeper in recent memory.

If things weren’t bad enough for poor old Roberto, some Irons supporters are revelling in the fact that West Ham somehow look set to make a profit on his departure.

After arriving at the London Stadium for free, Real Vallodolid are close to parting with actual cash to complete the deal.

Incredible.
