West Ham didn’t take a big step forward to the top four as they suffered a 1-0 home loss to Everton.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s 24th-minute strike was all that separated the two teams in a rambling meeting at London Stadium.
It’s a missed opportunity for the Hammers in their effort to finish in the Champions League place, with Leicester’s surprise loss to Newcastle opening the door for them two points out of the fourth.
But West Ham lacked composure, with Said Benrahma missing a header in the first half, while Jarrod Bowen could not recover from Vladimir Coufal’s effort on the post.
The visitors were more threatening with Calvert-Lewin and Richarlison causing a lot of trouble for their opponents, while Josh King wasted a good chance heading against the post up close.
But that didn’t matter for the Toffees who held on for the win – their fifth in London this quarter.
