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.

Argentine playmaker Lanzini, who had a penalty saved at Goodison Park earlier this season, picked up a misplaced pass from Cheikhou Kouyate and found the net from outside the box six minutes before halftime at London Stadium.

Everton boss Sam Allardyce responded with the introduction of midfielder Davy Klaassen at the break, but it was West Ham who doubled their lead with a fierce shot from Marko Arnautovic.

The visitors pulled one back through striker Oumar Niasse before Lanzini applied the finishing touches to a West Ham victory five minutes from time with a curling finish.

West Ham secured a 13th-placed finish as David Moyes celebrated his first league victory as manager over his former club Everton in six attempts.
