West Ham United faced off against Derby County at the Pride Park Stadium earlier tonight as they hoped to earn a positive result away from home. The Hammers made a bright start to the game and got their noses ahead in the tenth-minute courtesy of Jarrod Bowen’s goal. The East London club went into the half-time break with a 1-0 lead.

Michail Antonio doubled West Ham’s advantage in the 50th minute when he got his name on the scoresheet. The contest ended with the Hammers cruising to an easy 2-0 on the road.
