West Ham suffered a controversial home defeat as goals from Juan Mata and Zlatan Ibrahimovic handed Manchester United a 2-0 win at London Stadium following the harsh sending-off of Sofiane Feghouli early in the game. The Hammers were always facing an uphill struggle following the controversial dismissal of Feghouli after just 14 minutes. The Algeria international was making his first Premier League start of the season but he was desperately unlucky to receive a red card following a challenge with United defender Phil Jones. The decision changed the course of the game and United made the extra man count as second half goals from Mata and Ibrahimovic handed them all three points.

Pep Guardiola's first taste of the FA Cup ended triumphantly as his Manchester City side thrashed Premier League rivals West Ham in the third round. City led 3-0 at the break, Yaya Toure starting the rout by firing a debatable penalty into the bottom left corner. Havard Nordtveit bundled Bacary Sagna's teasing cross into his own net, just 146 seconds before David Silva's composed tap-in. Shortly after the restart, Sergio Aguero cheekily diverted in Toure's shot to become the third-highest goalscorer in City's history. And John Stones headed in his first Blues goal as the visitors comfortably saw the game out in a rapidly emptying London Stadium.

West Ham United produced the perfect team performance as they put a difficult few days behind them to record an emphatic 3-0 win over Crystal Palace. All the headlines may have surrounded Dimitri Payet, but the players showed they are united as they secured their first victory in 2017. It turned out to be the perfect day for the east London Club as Sofiane Feghouli netted his first Premier League goal, Andy Carroll scored a superb scissor kick and Manuel Lanzini also got on the scoresheet as the Hammers got back to winning ways in style at London Stadium. Slaven Bilic could not have asked anymore from his players who were under the spotlight following a turbulent few days, but they showed how much they are behind the manager with a superb team display. The players showed character, determination and the quality to record their biggest Premier League win at London Stadium. It was also a day to remember for Michail Antonio who was forced to miss the build-up through illness, but played his part with three crucial assists during the game.

The hosts hit back with a well-worked move that ended with Cristhian Stuani tapping in Calum Chambers' low cross. Carroll pounced after Victor Valdes tipped away Michail Antonio's low effort to give West Ham the lead at the break. Boro threw on January signings Patrick Bamford and Rudy Gestede, but the Hammers added to their lead on the break late on through Jonathan Calleri.

JOSE FONTE and ROBERT SNODGRASS both make their Hammers debut against MANCHESTER CITY at the London Stadium

West Ham United failed to build on their recent good run of form as Manchester City recorded a comfortable 4-0 victory at London Stadium. Slaven Bilic's side came into the game full of confidence following consecutive victories over Crystal Palace and Middlesbrough which saw them move into the top half of the table. But the Hammers failed to reach the same standards and could do nothing to stop Pep Guardiola's side recording another victory in east London, following their FA Cup victory at the start of January. Goals from Kevin De Bruyne, David Silva. Gabriel Jesus and a second half penalty from Yaya Toure helped City record an emphatic victory. Bilic made one change from the team that recorded a 3-1 win over Middlesbrough in the last game as he handed a Premier League debut to new signing Jose Fonte following his £8million from Southampton. But the Portuguese defender suffered a frustrating evening in his first start for the club and could do nothing to stop a rampant Manchester City side.

The Hammers looked to be heading for all three points after Manuel Lanzini added a second for West Ham with just four minutes left on the clock. But the the home side failed to hold on and Evans rose the highest in the box four minutes into injury time to head the ball past Darren Randolph. It was harsh luck on Slaven Bilic's side who were outstanding throughout the ninety minutes and deserved more from the game after Sofiane Feghouli had cancelled out an early goal from Nacer Chadli.

Andre Ayew netted the crucial equaliser to help West Ham secure a well deserved 1-1 draw with Watford at Vicarage Road. Ayew came off the substitutes bench to score his second goal for the Hammers following his Club record move from Swansea last summer. Michail Antonio had done all the hard work when he superbly raced past Younes Kaboul and saw his shot come back off both posts. The Ghana international has only just returned from a long-term thigh injury, but he was in the right place at the right time to convert the rebound. It was the least the Hammers deserved after they fell behind early in the game when Troy Deeney struck a penalty past Darren Randolph. Slaven Bilic's side dominated the game and had a number of chances to get on the scoresheet. The only downside for the Hammers was the late sending off for Antonio who was sent off for two bookable offences and will now miss the big London derby against Chelsea at London Stadium.

Eden Hazard and Diego Costa were on target for the visitors as they brushed aside the Hammers to take a 10-point lead at the top of the Premier League. Manuel Lanzini struck a consolation in injury time to set up an anxious conclusion but Chelsea held on, and Bilic thought Antonio Conte's side were full value for their victory.

West Ham United paid the penalty for failing to take advantage of two missed AFC Bournemouth spot-kicks to fall to a 3-2 defeat at Vitality Stadium. The Hammers would have climbed back into the Premier League’s top ten with a point, only to allow Joshua King’s hat-trick to condemn them to a first away defeat of 2017. An ultimately disappointing game on the south coast featured five goals, two missed penalties, six yellow cards, 36 goal attempts (16 of them on target) and seemingly endless talking points. King had missed a first-half penalty before Michail Antonio fired Slaven Bilic’s side in front. The Bournemouth striker then equalised and scored a second either side of Benik Afobe’s own miss from 12 yards. Substitute Andre Ayew looked to have snatched a draw seven minutes from full-time, only for King to win it in the 90th when he slammed the loose ball high into the net from ten yards.

Despite a dominant second-half display, a mistake-ridden first half proved costly for the Hammers as they suffered a 3-2 defeat against Leicester City

Manuel Lanzini and Andre Ayew then scored either side of a Jamie Vardy goal but despite a host of late chances for the Hammers, the visitors held out to secure their first away win of the season.

Goals from Mesut Ozil, Theo Walcott and sub Olivier Giroud gave Arsenal a much-needed 3-0 win over West Ham on Wednesday night in the Premier League. Ozil gave Arsenal the lead on 58 minutes with a left-footed shot from the edge of the area, though Darren Randolph should have done better in the West Ham goal. It was 2-0 just 10 minutes later through Walcott, who struck home from 10 yards after Ozil's centre from a fine Arsenal move. The third came seven minutes from time through Giroud, who curled a fine effort into the corner from 15 yards just nine minutes after coming on. The result means Arsenal are back in the top five on goal difference, while West Ham are five points off the drop zone.

West Ham ended a five-game losing run as they gained a much-needed win over struggling Swansea City. The Hammers took a deserved lead just before half-time when Cheikhou Kouyate collected a Robert Snodgrass pass and scored with a stunning low 25-yard strike. Swansea substitute Luciano Narsingh came closest to an equaliser for the visitors but his powerful strike went just over. The result leaves Swansea in the bottom three of the Premier League with only six games left to secure their top-flight survival. For West Ham though, they move up to 14th and now have an eight-point cushion between themselves and 18th-placed Swansea.

Substitute Fabio Borini scored a 90th-minute equaliser as Sunderland drew with West Ham to keep their faint hopes of Premier League survival alive. Andre Ayew opened the scoring for the Hammers, prodding past Jordan Pickford after a scuffed Andy Carroll volley fell to him in the penalty area. Sunderland finally broke their scoring duck, with Wahbi Khazri's corner flying straight in for the Black Cats' first goal in more than 11-and-a-half hours. James Collins headed in from a Robert Snodgrass corner to put the visitors in front, before Borini levelled from the edge of the box. Sam Byram was then sent off for West Ham for a second booking in added time, but Sunderland were unable to find a winner. It makes it eight games without a victory for David Moyes' side, who remain rooted to the bottom of the table.

Everton suffered a setback in their bid for a top-five Premier League finish as they were held to a 0-0 draw by West Ham at the London Stadium. In a game of very few chances, West Ham, marshalled by Jose Fonte and James Collins, nullified the threat of the Premier League's top goalscorer Romelu Lukaku, who barely had a shot on goal. The hosts were the more threatening side as the game wore on with Manuel Lanzini and James Collins both forcing saves from Maarten Stekelenburg, but neither side could break the deadlock on what was a frustrating afternoon in east London. The point inches Slaven Bilic's side closer to top-flight safety - they are now seven points above the drop zone with four matches remaining.

Andre Ayew had the best of West Ham's chances, with an acrobatic overhead kick forcing an equally impressive save from Butland. Marko Arnautovic looked to be through on goal for Stoke, but his volley from point-blank range was saved by Adrian.

West Ham left Tottenham's Premier League title hopes in tatters as Manuel Lanzini's second-half goal secured a 1-0 victory at the London Stadium. Lanzini's fired home from close range with 25 minutes remaining following some pinball in the Spurs area as they failed to clear Aaron Cresswell's cross. West Ham now have 42 points, and are mathematically safe from relegation. After a gritty opening 20 minutes, the first big chance fell to Spurs and Kane, who was denied twice by Adrian. First, his 20-yard effort was fumbled by the Hammers stopper, before Dele Alli's rebound was blocked and Kane's second effort was superbly turned over the bar by Adrian's foot. From the resulting corner, Adrian then tipped away Eric Dier's header with a smart save as Spurs came to life. But West Ham had chances of their own and went close when Lanzini was played through by Mark Noble, only for Hugo Lloris to rush out and just about get enough on the ball outside the box to avoid a foul and red card. With Lloris grounded, Cheikhou Kouyate tried to lob the ball into the net, but could not hit the target from the edge of the box. Christian Eriksen wasted a good chance on the hour mark, poking straight at Adrian after a fine Tottenham move involving Son and Kyle Walker, before Adrian tipped wide Son's effort from 20 yards towards the bottom corner. But it was the hosts who took the lead on 65 minutes through Lanzini, who lashed home low from five yards out after Sam Byram and Andre Ayew had kept the ball alive in the box from a Cresswell cross. Tottenham threatened to fall apart after falling behind, as Toby Alderweireld's mistake in defence allowed Jonathan Calleri a clear sight at goal, but his effort was saved brilliantly by Lloris. Eriksen shot just wide from range late on, before Ashley Fletcher missed a late one-on-one on the counter attack, but it ended 1-0 to West Ham, a Premier League-high seventh win by that scoreline this season.

Five games unbeaten in the Premier League and five unbeaten in all competitions against Liverpool, West Ham United went into Sunday’s clash against the Reds with plenty of confidence but were beaten 4-0 at London Stadium. In their final home match of the season, Slaven Bilic’s men were outdone by Daniel Sturridge’s first half goal, two Philippe Coutinho strikes and Divock Origi’s finish as the Merseysiders strengthened their hold on fourth spot.

2016/17 signed off in style; West Ham United’s final day 2-1 win at against Burnley at Turf Moor ensured an eleventh-place finish for Slaven Bilic’s side in the Premier League table. Sofiane Feghouli’s first half equaliser came before Andre Ayew bagged a sixth goal of the season – his fifth away from home – in the second period to cancel out Sam Vokes’ opener and secure maximum points for the visitors to end the campaign on a high note. It was a game the Hammers went into on the back of a defeat, but the victory meant Bilic’s men ended the term with just one defeat in their final seven matches, and impressive end-of-term record.
