Koeman: Toffees were poor against West Ham

WEST HAM United picked up a useful point in their bid to avoid relegation from the Premier League following a spirited goalless draw with high-flying Everton at the London Stadium.

Reid's West Ham team shut Lukaku, the league's top scorer, out last weekend.

"Maybe a point and a clean sheet are positives but after that they are no more". Hammers captain Noble, who was suspended, is one of only 19 players to reach 400 appearances for the club.

So what was the secret?

The Belgium global spoke about his desire to play in the Champions League and questioned Everton's ambition to challenge for titles in an interview in March, sparking fears that he could leave the club in the summer. Player of the Year 2017 nominees.

"We just had to keep tight to him", Reid told the Daily Star. "Don't let him turn", he said.

PIXIE LOTT donned a West Ham kit with tiny shorts during her half-time show at the London Stadium yesterday.

"We stopped the service to him from (Ross) Barkley and (Kevin) Mirallas and when he was getting the ball, we tried to double him up".

"We would like to think we are going to play a lot better than today".

"Lukaku has a good record against us but it is a job for our defenders". But it was West Ham who pressed on with Lanzini blocked and Fernandes wayward as they search for the goal their approach play deserved. "Then he can't score and it's going to be hard for him".

I can not see Manchester United finishing in the top four. "The whole team but in particular the three centre-backs did an fantastic job on him".

"It can work", he said. "It was more a case of knowing when to go and when not to".

A last throw of the dice from West Ham in the final 10 minutes saw a corner find Fonte at the back post but his header was saved by Stekelenburg.

West Ham's defence, porous all season, looked like ready prey for a player who had scored nine in his past nine matches, but Lukaku's performance was not of a level to extend his previous sequences.

"Unfortunately it's not a point that guarantees safety", he added. That is no excuse but we will certainly learn from it.
