The Hammers put in an impressive performance to grab their first away win in the Premier League this season and move up to fifteenth place in the Premier League table.

The win also makes it three games without a defeat with David Moyes seeing his side take seven points out of the last nine available, whilst also keeping three successive clean sheets.

The game, at the BET365 Stadium was an hour late kicking off courtesy of an electrical power failure with both generators at the ground failing.

Once the action got underway, it was the Hammers that looked the far more controlled side passing the ball well whilst also keeping it tight at the back.

West Ham got the scoring underway in the nineteenth minute when Lanzini appeared to be fouled in the penalty area. With the referee awarding a spot-kick it was Mark Noble who took responsibility and strode forward to beat Butland, in the Stoke goal, from twelve yards out.

With West Ham on top, the lead was doubled around the mid-point of the second half when the former Stoke City player, Marko Arnautovic, scored.

The Hammers summer signing could have scored a hat-trick, somehow hitting the post twice in the second half as West Ham went for the jugular.

But the points were wrapped up when, in the eighty-fourth minute, Diafra Sahko, on as a substitute, scored the Hammers third goal.

Have the Hammers turned the corner with David Moyes in the hot-seat, it certainly appears so.
