JOE HART Manchester City and England goalkeeper completes a season-long loan move to West Ham

 

Romelu Lukaku haunted West Ham United once again as his brace helped Manchester United to a 4-0 opening-day Premier League win at Old Trafford. The Belgium striker made it eleven goals in 13 career appearances against the Hammers with a goal in each half before substitute Anthony Martial and compatriot Paul Pogba completed Sunday’s scoring as full-time approached. Lukaku was at his predatory best on a Super Sunday for the Red Devils, lashing home Marcus Rashford’s pass just past the half-hour mark, before nodding in Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s free-kick to complete the scoring eight minutes after the break. In truth, Manchester United were full value for their victory as West Ham named four Premier League debutants Joe Hart, Pablo Zabaleta, Marko Arnautovic and former Manchester United striker Chicharito

NEWCASTLE UNITED : Premier League

Joe Hart, Pablo Zabaleta, Marko Arnautovic and Javier Hernandez (Chicharito) all make their Hammers debut against Manchester United

17_08_13 Manchester United v. WHU 17_08_23 Cheltenham Town v. WHU 17_08_26 Newcastle United v. WHU

Manchester United:

De Gea, Valencia, Bailly, Jones, Blind, Matic, Pogba, Mata (Fellaini), Mikhitaryan (Lingard), Rashford (Martial), Lukaku

Southampton:

Forster; Cedric, Yoshida, Stephens, Bertrand; Davis (Long), Romeu, Lemina (Ward-Prowse), Redmond, Tadic; Gabbiadini (Austin)

Two goals from summer signing Chicharito was not enough for West Ham United to claim their first points of their season as the Irons fell to a 3-2 defeat at Southampton. The Hammers appeared set for another tough afternoon on the road as goals from Marco Gabbiadini and Dusan Tadic put the Saints 2-0 up either side of a Marko Arnautovic red card. Javier Hernandez was on hand to tuck in Michail Antonio’s saved effort on the stroke of half-time before the No17 again proved his goalscoring prowess in the second period, knocking home after Fraser Forster saved a Diafra Sakho header. However Southampton were awarded another penalty in the last minute of the match, from which Charlie Austin scored to give the hosts the win.

Cheltenham Town:

Flatt, Grimes, Cranston, Atangana, Storer, Pell, Wright (Graham), Winchester, Boyle (Dawson), Eisa (Holman), Forster

West Ham United safely negotiated their first hurdle of their Carabao Cup quest by overcoming Cheltenham Town 2-0 in the second round. The Hammers rode a steady race in the town which hosts the annual National Hunt festival, hitting the front just before the halfway mark and keeping their noses comfortably in front in the final furlongs. Diafra Sakho and Andre Ayew were the goalscorers at Whaddon Road, each netting within the space of three minutes just before half-time with identikit finishes into the bottom left-hand corner.

Newcastle United:

Elliot, Manquillo, Lascelles, Clark, Mbemba, Hayden (Diame), Merino, Atsu, Ritchie (Murphy), Perez, Joselu (Mitrovic).

It was a day to forget in the north east for West Ham United as Newcastle United were 3-0 winners in the Premier League. Goals from the Magpies’ new striker Joselu, defender Ciaran Clark and substitute Aleksander Mitrovic meant the Hammers suffered their third consecutive Premier League defeat at St. James’ Park. Declan Rice was caught in possession in midfield, and the Magpies countered quickly; Atsu, racing past Zabaleta in the left-hand-channel, found himself one-on-one with Hart and, aware of his surroundings, cleverly laid-off for Joselu to poke into the empty net. The second for Newcastle came ten minutes later, Ciaran Clark up from the back headed in against the post to put the game beyond West Ham’s reach. Into the last five minutes, the hosts were looking for a third and got it with four left to play. A simple header over the top found Ritchie, whose through ball left sub Aleksander Mitrovic with Hart to beat. Rounding the stopper, the forward completed the scoring, rounding off a day to forget in the north east for the Hammers.

Two goals in a prolific five-minute period was enough to secure West Ham United a first Premier League win of the season at home to Huddersfield Town. The 2-0 victory came as a result of a deflected Pedro Obiang effort in the 72nd minute while substitute Andre Ayew poked home on 77 minutes. It was no more than Slaven Bilic’s side deserved after a dominant performance. The home team created a host of excellent opportunities earlier in the contest, with Chicharito striking the woodwork. Huddersfield also saw an effort hit the cross-bar but were unable to score, giving West Ham an excellent win and Bilic three points on his 49th birthday.

WEST BROMWICH ALBION : Premier League

West Ham United collected their first away point of the season against West Brom following a goalless draw at The Hawthorns. Slaven Bilic’s side enjoyed the best chances in a physical and feisty encounter. Pedro Obiang’s shot from 40 yards, which crashed into the woodwork, was the stand-out effort. Michail Antonio also created a decent opportunity for himself while Chicharito may have been through on goal in the second period if not for a challenge by Ben Foster, earning the shot-stopper a booking. The Baggies meanwhile, despite some decent build-up play, failed to trouble Joe Hart’s goal with the Hammers earning a second consecutive league clean-sheet.

Goals from Angelo Ogbonna, Diafra Sakho and Arthur Masuaku were enough for West Ham United to beat Bolton Wanders 3-0 and secure passage into the Carabao Cup Fourth Round. The opening finish came just four minutes into the match as Ogbonna headed in a great effort from a set-piece. Sakho also found the net after some excellent work from Marko Arnautovic, with the winger providing two assists on his London Stadium debut for the Hammers. Masuaku secured the victory for the Hammers with a beautiful effort from distance in second-half stoppage time. A professional win for the Premier League team was capped with first team debuts for Sead Haksabanovic and Nathan Holland, who started the match and came off the bench respectively.

West Ham United were forced to settle for just a point at Turf Moor after a late Chris Wood finish cancelled out Michail Antonio’s first-half goal.  The opening goal came in the 19th minute as Antonio met a pass forward from Joe Hart, slotting home comfortably after skipping past the Burnley goalkeeper. The Hammers then saw Andy Carroll shown a pair of yellow cards in the space of three minutes, leading to the striker’s dismissal and leaving the away side with ten men. West Ham battled hard and looked set to achieve an impressive away win at Burnley, but Wood’s header found the bottom corner in the 85th minute to ensure the points were split between the two teams.

CRYSTAL PALACE : Premier League

Goals from Javier Hernandez and Andre Ayew were not enough to secure West Ham United a first away league win of the season after a very late equaliser by Wilfried Zaha in a 2-2 draw at Crystal Palace. A clever flicked finish from Chicharito on 31 minutes was followed up by a fantastic strike by Ayew moments before half-time, giving the forward three goals in his last two matches. Palace got a goal back after the interval via the penalty spot through Luka Milivojevic while Joe Hart produced some moments of brilliance in goal, most notably a double stop just before the half-time whistle. But, despite a gallant effort, West Ham's resolve was broken seven minutes into injury time as Zaha squeezed home with virtually the last kick of the game.

Goals from Mohamed Salah, Joel Matip and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain saw West Ham United fall to a 4-1 defeat against Liverpool. Quick fire finishes by Salah and Matip in the first period put the Reds 2-0 ahead at half-time, but Manuel Lanzini superbly scored to give the Hammers a way back into the game on 55 minutes. However a quick response by Oxlade-Chamberlain put Liverpool two goals ahead again soon after, while Salah secured the defeat for the Hammers.

Slaven Bilic has been sacked by West Ham.

 

The Croatian was summoned to showdown talks with co-owners David Sullivan, David Gold and vice chairman Karren Brady at the club’s Rush Green training ground. The board were reluctant to make a change with Bilic’s contract up at the end of the season. But after the manner of their humiliating 4-1 home defeat by Liverpool on Saturday - their sixth Premier League loss of the season - they called time on his two-and-a-half-year tenure.

Cheikhou Kouyate’s header earned David Moyes his first point as West Ham United manager as his side fought back well to draw 1-1 with Leicester City. The Hammers had to recover from the early blow of falling behind to Marc Albrighton’s eighth minute opener, and they showed great spirit to do just that. Kouyate rose highest to nod home a Manuel Lanzini corner on the stroke of half-time and it was the Hammers, backed by a tremendous atmosphere inside London Stadium, who remained on the front foot after the break. Joe Hart was barely tested in goal in the second period as the hosts searched for a way through, but they could not break down a stubborn Foxes defence again and had to settle for a point.

It was unhappy return to Goodison Park for West Ham United boss David Moyes as his former club Everton were 4-0 winners in the Premier League. Wayne Rooney’s hat-trick was followed by an Ashley Williams header as the hosts were comfortable winners on Merseyside. Toffees captain Rooney added to his first half brace with a spectacular strike from inside his own half on 66 minutes before Williams bagged a fourth. Manuel Lanzini was given the opportunity, with the score 2-0, to get his side back into the game with a second half penalty, but Jordan Pickford kept the Argentine’s low attempt out and gave Everton a platform to seal the victory.

CHELSEA : Premier League

West Ham United gave a valiant performance but were undone by a brace of second half goals as Premier League leading Manchester City secured a 13th successive win. The Hammers were compact in defence whilst possessing a threat on the break and took the lead before the interval, Angelo Ogbonna rising highest to convert Aaron Cresswell’s right wing cross. That left the visitors dreaming of an against-the-odds victory, but City regrouped after the break and made their pressure pay with goals from Nicolas Otamendi and David Silva.

West Ham United gave David Moyes their first victory as manager with a magnificent defensive effort against Chelsea. Marko Arnautovic’s early goal was enough to see off the Premier League champions and end a two-month wait for victory in the Premier League. The Hammers had to repel an enormous amount of Chelsea possession, but did a fine job of restricting their visitors largely to efforts from range. After a testing period for the Hammers, it was just the tonic they needed following on from a similarly resolute performance at Manchester City last week, and sets them up for the busy festive period on a stronger footing. Moyes has a big call to make in goal following Adrian’s fine performance at Manchester City last week and he opted to retain the No13 in his starting XI, alongside bringing Winston Reid, Mark Noble and Arnautovic back. It was the latter who had an immediate impact, firing the hosts into the lead with just six minutes on the clock. It was a lovely goal too, as the Austrian exchanged passes with Manuel Lanzini before dropping a shoulder to see off Cesar Azpilicueta and shoot into the corner.

ARSENAL : Premier League

West Ham United made it four points from two London derbies in a week as they stood firm against Arsenal at London Stadium. Neither side could find a way through as the Hammers again showed the defensive resilience which has served them so well through their run of games at the top end of the Premier League table. Alex Iwobi hit the post for the visitors in the first half, and Adrian had to save from Alexis Sanchez in the second, but West Ham came so close to taking all three points at the death when Chicharito’s shot thudded against the crossbar and out.

Arsenal:

Cech, Bellerin, Koscielny, Monreal, Xhaka, Wilshere, Maitland-Niles, Ozil, Iwobi (Welbeck), Sanchez (Lacazette), Giroud

Marko Arnautovic inspired West Ham United to an emphatic victory at former club Stoke City as the Hammers were 3-0 winners in the Premier League. The Austrian was a thorn in the Potters’ side throughout the afternoon, and his second goal in three games – sandwiched between a Mark Noble penalty and Diafra Sakho’s late third – helped West Ham to their first away win in the league since May. And the win could have been by a far greater margin – Arnautovic himself hit the post twice and Stoke rode their luck at times to stay in the game.

ARSENAL : Carabao Cup (Fifth Round)

Stoke City:

Butland, Cameron, Shawcross, Wimmer, Pieters (Tymon), Shaqiri, Fletcher (Adam), Allen, Ramadan, Diouf (Berahino), Crouch.

Arsenal:

Ospina; Debuchy, Chambers, Holding, Kolasinac; Coquelin (Dasilva), Elneny, Willock (Sheaf), Walcott, Welbeck, Giroud (Nelson)

West Ham United fell out of the Carabao Cup after a 1-0 quarter final defeat to Arsenal. A scrappy finish by Danny Welbeck just a few moments before half-time was the only thing that separated the two sides in a contest void of quality. The Hammers best chances came down the flanks with Arthur Masuaku playing well, but it wasn’t enough for David Moyes’s side to grab the necessary goal. It was the home side that dominated the majority of possession in the opening period, although a resolute Hammers back-line kept the Gunners from creating clear-cut chances. West Ham’s first flurry forward came from the in-form Masuaku, who continued to threaten down the left flank. A free-kick won by the 23-year-old handed the Hammers their best chance of the first half, with Aaron Cresswell whipping in the set-piece on 38 minutes, which was headed into David Ospina’s hands. Sead Kolasinac fired an effort over from distance for Arsenal, while captain Theo Walcott headed wide from a cross by the Bosnian, despite being unmarked in the West Ham penalty area. However, three minutes before the break, Arsenal had the lead. Mathieu Debuchy headed Francis Coquelin’s diagonal ball back across goal, and Welbeck poked home the loose ball past Hart.

NEWCASTLE UNITED : Premier League

West Ham United saw a lead slip away as Newcastle United took all three points from London Stadium. Marko Arnautovic opened the scoring early on as the home side made the perfect start, but Newcastle soon struck back through Henri Saivet before moving in front after the interval thanks to close range goals from Mo Diame and Christian Atsu. Between those strikes Andre Ayew had a penalty saved by Rob Elliot, and although Ayew later gave the Hammers hope with a close range finish, there was no third goal for the hosts as Newcastle held out for victory.

AFC BOURNEMOUTH : Premier League

James Collins admitted to feeling hugely contrasting emotions after West Ham United's 3-3 Boxing Day Premier League draw at AFC Bournemouth. The Ginger Pele marked his recall to the starting XI by being handed the captain's armband and scoring his side's opening goal, only for a highly controversial late Callum Wilson leveller to deny the Hammers all three points. West Ham went in front through Collins' powerful seventh-minute header before surrendering their lead to goals from Dan Gosling and Nathan Ake either side of half-time. Adrian then made a succession of fine saves to keep the Hammers in the game before Marko Arnautovic's double looked set to give David Moyes' team a vital victory. Then, a minute into added time, Ake headed goalwards and Wilson appeared to convert with his upper right arm from an offside position. Referee Bobby Madley conversed at length with his assistant, who had initially raised his flag, before giving the goal.
