AFC BOURNEMOUTH : Premier League

West Ham United ran riot against Bournemouth as goals from Mark Noble (2), Sebastien Haller and Felipe Anderson gave new manager David Moyes an excellent start to his second tenure at the Club.  The Glaswegian had spoken of his desire to get the fans often leaping to their feet, and his new team remained true to his word in a team performance coated in style, verve, passion and quality. A deflected Mark Noble strike leant West Ham the perfect start, before a spectacular bicycle kick from Sebastien Haller, plus a penalty won and converted by Noble, saw the Hammers record their first 3-0 half-time lead since March 2018, all but sealing a first New Year's Day win since 2013. Felipe Anderson's run and finish added the gloss to a resounding scoreline, and with 'olés' ringing around London Stadium by full-time, an exciting new era was ushered in on a chilly Wednesday evening.

GILLINGHAM : FA Cup (Third Round)

Second half goals from the two Pablos, Zabaleta and Fornals, ensured safe passage for West Ham United in the Emirates FA Cup at the Medway Priestfield Stadium. The Hammers' duo struck in the final 16 minutes to settle the tie in Kent and end stern Gillingham resistance. The hosts proved a tough nut to crack and gave as good as they got in the opening period, before West Ham took over after the break and eventually got their reward. David Moyes showed that he was not taking his League One opponents lightly, by making only three changes to the side which defeated AFC Bournemouth in midweek. And the Gills proved they were a force to be reckoned with by getting on the press early and putting their visitors under pressure. The breakthrough finally arrived 16 minutes from time, it came from the unlikely source of Zabaleta. The Argentine has waited two-and-a-half years and 75 games to notch in Claret & Blue, but he made the most of the opportunity to smash home from ten yards after Arthur Masuaku's low cross was touched on by Fornals. Fornals then got in on the act to wrap it up at the death, shooting low into the bottom right hand corner to complete a swift counter-attack after being teed up by Felipe Anderson.

EVERTON : Premier League

Sheffield United:

Robert Snodgrass was denied a dramatic stoppage time equaliser by a Video Assistant Referee decision against Declan Rice as West Ham United suffered a 1-0 defeat to Sheffield United on Friday night. The Hammers thought they had cancelled out Oli McBurnie's 54th minute strike to take a point back down the M1, only for a handball against the No41 to be spotted as he burst through the challenge. McBurnie took advantage of a defensive error to score what turned out to be the only goal of a tight game at Bramall Lane and end David Moyes' winning start as West Ham boss. The visitors were dealt a blow just 15 minutes in when Lukasz Fabianski went down in pain after taking a goal kick. He was unable to continue, so David Martin came on in his place.

A quickfire exchange of headers late in the first half saw West Ham United held to a battling 1-1 draw by Everton at London Stadium. The Irons poured forwards in the first period and forced Everton keeper Jordan Pickford into some excellent saves, before Issa Diop's glancing header from Robert Snodgrass' free-kick granted them a well-deserved lead shortly before half-time. The old adage that a team is never more vulnerable than in the moments after they have scored came to the fore, however, when Everton left-back Lucas Digne's corner was flicked on at the near post by Mason Holgate and converted by Dominic Calvert-Lewin just three minutes later. Despite making plenty of running in the second half, both teams struggled to create anything like the opportunities of the first period, and eventually had to settle for a hard-fought draw at London Stadium.

Mark Noble’s penalty early in the second period had given the visitors hope after Leicester shot into a two goal lead before the break, but Ayoze Perez’s late double extinguished that to ensure the points stayed at the King Power Stadium. Leicester were first to settle and Jamie Vardy had a sight of goal with just four minutes on the clock, receiving a pass from Harvey Barnes inside the area and taking a touch, before poking at Darren Randolph. Ricardo Pereira slashed at shot when in space in the area at one end, while Robert Snodgrass had an effort deflected wide at the other, but Leicester were the more threatening side in the early stages and they got their reward in the 24th minute. Hammers hands went up asking for an offside when Barnes knocked into the net from close range following Pereira’s cut-back. Barnes turned provider, finding the space down the left flank to send a low cross through the box to his onrushing right-back, who drilled back across Randolph and into the far corner. West Ham made a double change on the game’s resumption, introducing Michail Antonio and Pablo Fornals. Just three second half minutes had been played when Kasper Schemichel only half punched a Manuel Lanzini free-kick clear. Sebastien Haller picked up the pieces and was bundled over by Pereira in the process. Referee David Coote pointed to the spot, with a VAR check confirming the penalty. Noble did what Noble does, clipping the penalty down the middle as Schmeichel dived to his right, giving West Ham the perfect start to the second half. However, Leicester’s authority was growing again and Ogbonna’s foul on Kelechi Iheanacho ten minutes from the end resulted in a penalty which Perez dispatched down the middle. The Spaniard still had time to add another, threading a low shot into the bottom left hand corner of the Hammers’ net on 88 minutes.

WEST BROMWICH ALBION : FA Cup (Fourth Round)

West Bromwich Albion:

Bond, O'Shea, Ajayi, Hegazi, Townsend, Barry, Brunt, Phillips (Tulloch), Krovinovic (Bartley), Edwards, Austin (Zohore)

West Ham United's 2019/20 Emirates FA Cup campaign ground to a halt in the fourth round against West Bromwich Albion. The Hammers never really got going against a well-drilled Baggies side, who maintained their shape well to upset top-flight opposition after Conor Townsend's early strike proved enough to settle a tie ultimately short on quality. After an intensive recent fixture schedule, manager David Moyes made four changes for the visit of the Championship league leaders, reintroducing Fabian Balbuena, Carlos Sanchez, Pablo Fornals and Albian Ajeti to his starting line-up. Moyes' side, however, struggled for fluency in the opening stages, and it was the visitors who took an early lead when visiting left-back Townsend collected a loose ball just inside the area and arrowed his shot into the far corner, finding the inside of the side-netting.
