Bowen scores twice as West Ham beat Everton

Jarrod Bowen of West Ham United runs with the ball from James Tarkowski of Everton during the Premier League match between West Ham United and Everton FC at London Stadium on January 21, 2023 in London, England.

Everton slumped to another defeat in front of owner Farhad Moshiri as Jarrod Bowen's first-half double earned West Ham their first win in almost three months and piled the pressure on old boy Frank Lampard.

Under-fire Moshiri was attending his first game in 14 months, alongside the directors who missed last week's home defeat by Southampton because of a 'real and credible' threat to their safety, in a show of support for Lampard and defiance of his critics.

But his return didn't bring Everton any luck as Bowen scored twice in seven first-half minutes to take West Ham out of the relegation zone and bring some respite for manager David Moyes, who has been under intense pressure himself.

Everton have now gone 10 games without a win in all competitions and have picked up a single point - at Manchester City - in a run of seven games that has included five defeats against teams immediately around them in the relegation battle.

The final whistle brought more boos from the Everton contingent and also banners being raised demanding 'Sack the Board' and 'No Communication, No Plan, No Vision'.
