We beat the Saints because they were worse than us – if we had played Newcastle on 2nd we would have been thrashed just the same.

Bowen’s brace at the beginning of the second half should not over shadow Scamacca’s scoring our first goal on the night, bringing his total for the season so far to 8, with help from Larnaca’s Bosnian keeper Piric letting the ball roll under him into the net. The game needed a goal and this was followed by a disallowed goal from Scamacca and for the visitors before Gustavo Ledes was shown a red card for a very poor challenge on Fornals, after the VAR check upgraded the original yellow card.

Spurs struggled to deliver when in good positions and this cost them as Antonio got the better of Kane to stab home his 6th goal in 10 games for the Hammers. Antonio, who has proved to be unplayable when in this rich form, gave centre back Cristian Romero and run for his £47m price tag with his physical play making it a miserable Sunday afternoon for the Spurs centre back.
Back to the Future Part 2
We found ourselves back in the relegation zone for our match against Ralph Hasenhüttl’s Saints against the backdrop of fan protest with an estimated 3000 marching against Gold, Sullivan and Brady. The protest, organised by Hammers United, started in Plaistow and ended outside the ground with speeches and chants urging fans to support the team and not the board but highlighting the issues fans have with the way the club is being run.
Back to the Future Part 1
Our first game under Moyes for his second return to the club saw a dominant Hammers put four past a struggling Bournemouth at the London Stadium. It could not have been a better script for Moyes with captain Noble scoring 2 – including a penalty and both Sebastian Haller and Felipe Anderson helping to end a run of four consecutive defeats which lifted the Hammers out of the relegation zone.
