Lampard on the development of Anthony Gordon

Everton took their first win of the Premier League season as Neal Maupay’s first goal for the club was enough to beat West Ham, who remained in the last three.

In a game that badly needed a goal, Maupay had an excellent result on the return to get Frank Lampard to get a side lift at Goodison Park.

West Ham awoke after falling behind when reserve Said Benrahma hit the post and tested backup Maxwel Cornet Everton goalkeeper Asmir Begovic.

Cornet later had a chance to equalize late after rounding Begovic, but were unable to come back from a narrow angle as West Ham’s Premier League struggles continued.

The Hammers have scored just three goals, winning just one of their seven Premier League games under David Moyes, while Everton moved up to 13th before the international break.

With four points in seven games, West Ham had their worst start to the Premier League season since the 2016/17 season (again, four points).

In 1973/74 alone, the Hammers had fewer points at this stage of a first-class campaign (assuming three – three points for a win).

End of match: Everton 1-0 West Ham

90+5 minutes: Everton wait! They scored a crucial three against the Hammers at Goodison Park and took their first win of the season just before the international break.

The win put Everton in 13th place and they will have a two week break with a good start to the season. Meanwhile, West Ham remain in 18th place with four points from seven games, and David Moyes is left with questions to be answered when the Premier League returns in October.

83 minutes: Frank Lampard replaced him with Abdoulaye Doucoure, while Demarai Gray spent months loitering off the field. Amadou Onana takes a hit and has to limp off the field to continue.

Everton managed to take a minute or two off the game. You have less than 10 minutes to play at Goodison Park. If they can close it, that would be a huge win for Everton.
