Is David Moyes waving goodbye to West Ham fans for final time?

Is David Moyes waving goodbye to West Ham fans for final time?

Manuel Lanzini scored goals either side of the break to help West Ham United to a 3-1 win over Everton in their final Premier League game of the season on Sunday. He has guided the team to safety and ensured that they finished 13th, but there have been times along the way where it appeared that they may end up in serious trouble, and the disconnect between the fans and the owners appears to be greater than it has been for a long time.

Manuel Lanzini bagged a brace for the home side, while Marko Arnautovic was also on target with a strike that nearly burst the net.

Sam Allardyce fears there is "no smoke without fire" in rumours surrounding his Everton exit after a season-ending loss at the London Stadium. The Olympic Stadium visitors could scarcely get a kick of the ball early on as Arnautovic had a shot blocked and Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford denied Mark Noble.

Everton pulled a goal back through Oumar Niasse to reduce the deficit, but Lanzini was on hand again to further extend his side's lead and secure all three points for David Moyes' side.

With West Ham fans booing, Everton attacked.

Neymar 2000 percent certain to stay, says PSG president
I don't think there'd be any problems within the dressing room but for me, it would be a bit weird to see him back at Barca. The president said that he was "2000 per cent" sure Neymar will not leave the club in the next transfer window.

Lanzini combined with Pablo Zabaleta down the right and the full-back played the ball in field for Cheikhou Kouyate. Leighton Baines' cross was met by Niasse, but he could not direct his header on goal.

There was further reason for Everton discontent when Arnautovic turned Michael Keane easily and struck a swerving ball which appeared to go through Pickford's despairing dive.

A mistake by Angelo Ogbonna allowed Niasse a one-on-one with Adrian just after the half-hour mark, but the Senegalese striker aimed too close to the goalkeeper, who saved his low shot with an outstretched leg.

The revival was short lived as Lanzini curled in from the edge of the area.
