West Ham United bounced back from four straight Premier League defeats at the start of the 2018-19 campaign to record a 3-1 win at Everton on Sunday afternoon.
The Hammers lost to Liverpool, Bournemouth, Arsenal and Wolverhampton Wanderers in the league to sit bottom of the table heading into the international break.
Manuel Pellegrini’s side put in easily their best performance of the season against Everton at the weekend, however, and it was enough to secure them all three points.
The club’s fans have been on social media paying tribute to a number of performances, and summer arrival Fabian Balbuena has been heavily praised.

The 27-year-old joined West Ham from Corinthians during the summer, and has been a constant at the heart of the club’s defence.
The 6ft 2in ace was strong and composed against Everton on Sunday afternoon, and West Ham fans have been on social media paying tribute to his display.
A selection of the Twitter reaction from the club’s supporters can be seen below:
