Everton fans on Twitter didn’t have much to be happy about after their 3-1 defeat at home to West Ham on Sunday, but some at least did find solace in the wonderful header scored by Gylfi Sigurdsson on the stroke of half-time.
The Toffees had gone two goals down thanks to two strikes from West Ham’s summer signing Andriy Yarmolenko on his first start for the club, and although his second was an impressive finish it was largely thanks to a mistake by Jordan Pickford, piling more misery on for Everton fans.
However, when young right-back Jonjo Kenny swung in a cross after two minutes of added time in the first half Sigurdsson was there to power home a header from beyond the penalty spot past the helpless Lukasz Fabianski in the Hammers net.
Unfortunately for Everton, West Ham again came out firing in the second half and Marko Arnautovic got the goal that killed the tie. Check out some of the best tweets below in reaction to Sigurdsson’s header.
That was a superb header by Sigurdsson. Could have a game here second half…

Much need stoppage time goal for the Blues going into the half.
A Sigurdsson header was not what I'd have expected, but they all count.
