Heading to Goodison Park yesterday, for what was a crucial Premier League fixture, after losing our opening four games, the statistics suggested that the Hammers faced a tough task to get anything from the game.

But, the injury to Jack Wilshere allied with a subtle change in formation, saw the Hammers produce a performance that was worthy of the 3-1 win.

However, it appears that in winning up in the north-west, the record books show that, just perhaps, a win was always going to be on the cards.

Read on……………………..

• It would appear that Everton and Sunday fixtures don’t go together, the Toffees have won just 1 of their last 13 Premier League games that they’ve played on a Sunday, losing 10 and drawing 2.

• Another intriguing fact that has come to light relates to the fact that, yesterday, was Manuel Pellegrini’s 65th birthday, the win made the Chilean the first boss to celebrate a Premier League victory on his birthday since Arsene Wenger did so back on 22 October last year. By some strange quirk of fate, the opposition, on that day, were Everton!
