West Ham finished sixth in the table after the win over Everton

Aaron Creswell’s first goal for West Ham came after scoring his first goal of the season – 4-2 win over Newcastle

West Ham climbed to sixth in the Premier League with a 10-man win over Everton, leaving Tofis with a relegation problem.

Aaron Creswell made a great free-kick to open the scoring for the hosts as he curled the ball past England goalkeeper Jordan Pickford at the London Stadium.

But Everton, without an away league win from 28 August, started brilliantly in the second half as Dominic Calvert-Levin hit the post and a crossbar corner to make Mason Holgate’s well-controlled half-volley 1-1.

However, they were equal for only five minutes. Michael Antonio clears Everton’s defense and his shot is blocked by Pickford but the rebound falls to Jared Bowen, who returns from a fractured leg and returns the ball to the unprotected net.

The situation worsened for spectators when captain Michael Keane was sent off midway through for his second bookable offense, following his second late challenge on Antonio. After that, there was no way back for the spectators.

Everton are 16th and 16th in the Premier League, three points ahead of Watford. On Wednesday they face a crucial game at Burnley, who are 19th.

West Ham is dreaming

It was a welcome win for West Ham when two defeats in their last three matches shattered their hopes of qualifying for Europe automatically and they dropped to eighth place in the table.

The Hammers have never played in the Champions League and are now three points behind fourth-placed Tottenham – the place to qualify. Spurs, who Newcastle lost 5-1 Later on Sunday, there was a game at hand when fifth-placed Arsenal played three matches less than the Hammers.

This result continues a very impressive season for the team of David Moyes, who will face Lyon in the first leg of the Europa League quarter-finals on Thursday and if Barcelona reach the semifinal potential.

If they win the competition after winning the European Cup Winners’ Cup in 1965, it will be their first European trophy and a place in the Champions League regardless of their final position in the Premier League.

At the packed London Stadium, Creswell’s great free-kick gave them the lead and they had a chance to make it 2-0 but Pablo Fernandez shot right over it and Antonio can only shoot from side-netting from a solid angle after Pickford’s goal. .

Those misses seemed costly when Holgate, a last-minute add-on for Everton after Donnie van de Beck was injured in the warm-up, had a great half-volley control after Richardson rocked the ball in his way.

But just minutes later Everton’s Alex Eoby lost possession, Antonio was cleared and Bowen followed up for his 13th goal of the season in all competitions.

Everton’s fierce race continues

The result continued the formidable form for Everton in the game outside of Goodison Park. In fact, their total of six points from 14 away games this season is the lowest of any of the 92 teams in the Premier League or EFL.

In their last two away games, they have lost 5-0 and 4-0 to Tottenham and Crystal Palace, respectively, where boss Frank Lampard challenged his teammates to show their character after the second game of the series.

He would be pleased with the way they started the second half and brought them to parity, but he was equally disappointed with the way they quickly backfired and gave him no choice but to fire Michael Oliver with a rash sliding after dismissing Kin. Challenge to Antonio who is already on the yellow card.

Everton, who recently announced a £ 120.9m loss for the 2020-21 season, have played in the top flight of English football every season since 1954-55, but have struggled to keep up the race with 10 games left in their season.
