West Ham United clashed heads with Everton at Goodison Park earlier today as they focused on collecting all three points on the road. The Hammers made a solid start to the game and managed to get into the half-time break with a goalless scoreline.
However, David Moyes’ men conceded in the 53rd minute when Neal Maupay found the back of the net for the home team. The Hammers failed to come up with a response and crashed to a narrow 1-0 defeat away from home.
