Everton

Toffees win hailed by Silva

31st March 2019, 07:56 by Michael Holland

Marco Silva declared himself satisfied as his Everton side defeated West Ham United 2-0 at the London Stadium.

Goals from Kurt Zouma and Bernard saw a dominant Toffees side leapfrog West Ham in the table and put them firmly in the hunt for a potential Europa League spot.

Zouma headed home the opener after just five minutes. Lukasz Fabianski then denied Gylfi Sigurdsson, Bernard and Dominic Calvert-Lewin before Brazilian winger Bernard tapped in a first Premier League goal before half-time.

Hammers boss Manuel Pellegrini hauled off Pedro Obiang, Lucas Perez and, to a chorus of boos, Marko Arnautovic, but still it was Everton who came closest to scoring in the second half when Richarlison's header crashed against the crossbar.

The performance delighted Silva, who believes the best side definitely won.

"I'm very satisfied," said Silva. "We are working to achieve this type of performance. It was 2-0 at half-time but could have been three, four or five. We controlled the second half and had the best chance to score.

"Since the first minute we were the best team on the pitch, and from the first moment we created problems for them."
