Everton top West Ham in Premier League with Neal Maupay goal


For his second game with Everton (after the derby against Liverpool, 0-0, on September 3), former French Espoirs international Neal Maupay (26) scored his first goal in his new colors, knowing that he had scored more in the Premier League since February 12, at Watford, with Brighton (2-0), from where he landed at the end of August for three years and 12 million euros.

And his magnificent sequence of oriented control-dry shots with the right foot at the near post (53rd) was enough for the Toffees to win against West Ham (1-0), still eighteenth, and therefore to give themselves a little air compared to the relegated Hammers (Everton are 13th with 7 points, three more than them).

During a second period much more removed than the first, quite insipid, the visitors nevertheless had several clear opportunities to equalize. But neither Soucek, imprecise then checked (68th, 69th), nor Benrahma, who found the post (74th), nor Cornet (entered the game), who stumbled on Begovic (85th) then could not straighten the race of the ball after having bypassed it (88th), failed to score.
