David Moyes claimed his first win back at Goodison Park since leaving Everton, with Angelo Ogbonna impressing for West Ham.
On an unusually quiet New Year’s Day by the Premier League’s normal standards, it is fair to say West Ham’s 1-0 win at Everton probably didn’t capture the imagination of many neutrals.
A cagey and tense match for the most part, West Ham eventually claimed the three points in the latter stages to hand Moyes his first win at Goodison Park since leaving Everton for Manchester United in 2013.
In the almost eight years since, not a great deal has gone Moyes’ way. But this was evidence that he appears to be on the right path with the Hammers and potentially enjoying the start of a reputational restoration.
