Everton boss Marco Silva says that West Ham should count themselves lucky to have got away with only losing 2-0 at home to a rampant Blues’s side today.
Silva watched his side cruise to an early lead which they never looked like giving away at a West Ham side devoid of any quality, fight, or ambition.
The Blues created enough chances to make the scoreline much more emphatic, but West Ham’s blushes were spared by an excellent goalkeeping performance and the crossbar.
It was a performance that many had hoped for, but few expected, from Everton after the international break threatened to steal momentum following the win over Chelsea at Goodison Park a fortnight ago.
But Silva’s men were quicker than their opponents, showed more fight than their opponents, and possess much more technical ability than West Ham, which pleased Silva.
“I was very proud of our performance and seeing our desire from the first minute,” Silva told Match of the Day.
“We were the best team on the pitch, we were playing good football and creating chances.
“Two nil at half time was a good result for them because it could have been five or six nil. We created chance after chance.”
