José Izquierdo’s stunning strike lights up Brighton against weary West Ham

It had already been a bad week for West Ham, featuring yet another deflating conclusion to a transfer window and the dismissal of their head of player recruitment following his remarks about African footballers, and the atmosphere surrounding them had descended to new levels of toxicity once it was over. For David Sullivan and David Gold, West Ham’s deeply unpopular owners, the temptation to close their eyes and stick their fingers in their ears must have been overwhelming long before the final…

Brighton & Hove Albion v West Ham United: match preview

Brighton have only claimed victory three times at home this season and their position is beginning to look complicated. The visit of West Ham, blighted by injury and off-field problems, looks like a good opportunity to end their six-match winless run. Record signing Jürgen Locadia is not ready for involvement just yet, although he has begun training, but Leonardo Ulloa should get some minutes on returning to his old home. Brighton are approaching the…

Mark Noble on spot to earn makeshift West Ham draw with Crystal Palace

Although it is impossible to argue with the assertion that West Ham United are crying out for reinforcements before the transfer window closes tonight, at least this gritty performance provided more evidence that David Moyes is capable of inspiring them to battle against adversity. A point was a decent reward bearing in mind that West Ham were deprived of almost an entire starting 11 and it was encouraging for Moyes to see his weary, battle-hardened …

Will Grigg hits double as Wigan cause FA Cup upset against 10-man West Ham

A feeble West Ham performance saw David Moyes’s depleted side become Wigan Athletic’s latest Premier League victims, in a Cup tie overshadowed by the dismissal of Arthur Masuaku early in the second half for spitting. It will be a pity if the game is remembered only for that, or for a West Ham injury list running into double figures, for this was a lively Wigan performance that was perhaps even better than the one that dumped…

Chelsea’s hunt for a medieval big man adds intrigue to football’s space race | Barney Ronay

West Ham’s Reece Burke finds finish to end Shrewsbury’s resistance

West Ham finally saw off Shrewsbury in added time of their FA Cup third round replay but it took a thumping volley from a rookie centre-half to do so. Reece Burke scored his first goal for the club with seven minutes remaining of the added half-hour at a chilly London Stadium. He smashed home Marko Arnautovic’s cutback off the underside of the bar, just when the match looked like heading to penalties without a single goal in…

Shrewsbury take insipid West Ham to replay on Joe Hart’s return

West Ham United will not relish a replay against Shrewsbury Town, and not only because of the imposition on their schedule. The League One team proved pesky opponents for their Premier League visitors, who never looked superior to Paul Hurst’s team. Joe Hart had hoped to make a triumphant return to the town of his birth but a clean sheet was the extent of his success. It was an uncomfortable outing all-round for David Moyes’ men…

Danny Welbeck prods home to take Arsenal past West Ham into last four

Arsenal have bigger fish to fry and the evidence was provided by Arsène Wenger’s decision to give the night off to every member of his starting line-up from Saturday’s Premier League win over Newcastle United. The visit of Liverpool on Friday looms large. But after the whistle had gone on this Carabao Cup quarter-final, the manager wanted to progress just as much as his second-stringers needed to impress.

Sam Allardyce watches on as Wayne Rooney hat-trick seals rare Everton win

Just when it was least expected but sorely needed, Wayne Rooney popped up with his first ever hat-trick for Everton, proving that timing, like class, is probably permanent. The 32-year-old even managed to score the third of his goals from his own half with one of the cleanest first-time strikes you will ever see, which must have convinced the watching Sam Allardyce there is life in the old dog yet. Somewhat belatedly it also appears David Unsworth …
