West Ham fans on Twitter were buzzing after their 3-1 win against Everton at Goodison Park on Sunday, and Marko Arnautovic’s goal and performance were widely praised.
It took just 11 minutes for the Hammers to take the lead against a lacklustre Everton side, as Arnautovic broke the offside trap and squared to the new man Andriy Yarmolenko, who had a simple job of tucking the ball past Jordan Pickford.
Then, 20 minutes later, Hammers captain Mark Noble pounced on a poor ball from Pickford and found Yarmolenko, who cut inside onto his left-foot and curled a perfect finish beyond the Everton and England goalkeeper.
On the stroke of half-time, Gylfi Sigurdsson pulled one back for the Toffees with a sublime header, but Arnautovic’s goal just after the hour mark put the game to bed following some neat play with Pedro Obiang. Check out some of the best tweets in relation to the 29-year-old below.
Arnautovic! Amazing gameplay, beautiful passing #COYI
