West Ham come back to earn comfortable win against Fulham

West Ham United won back-to-back Premier League games for the first time this season as they came from behind to beat Fulham 3-1 at the London Stadium on Sunday.

Fulham took an early lead almost out of nothing when Andreas Pereira took the ball into West Ham's box and blasted the ball from a tight angle past Lukasz Fabianski into the roof of the net.

Pereira quickly turned from hero to villain, however, when he fouled Craig Dawson in the box at a corner despite repeated warnings from the referee to keep his arms off the defender.

Jarrod Bowen dispatched the resulting penalty with aplomb as he sent Bernd Leno, who had just made a superb double save, the wrong way.

West Ham were slow to up the tempo with Fulham content to sit back but Gianluca Scamacca gave the home side the lead just after the hour mark when he deftly controlled Lucas Paqueta's lob before applying a cool finish.

Michail Antonio came off the bench and wrapped up the win in stoppage time when he profited from a defensive mix-up between Leno and defender Tim Ream.

"I thought we deserved the win. We started slow, maybe an impact of playing on Thursday [in the Europa Conference League], but we grew into the game as it went on," Moyes told BBC.

"We're still trying to improve a lot of things, but we're doing a lot of good things as well ... There were bits I didn't enjoy, but it's going in the right direction at the moment."

West Ham moved up to 13th in the standings, a point behind ninth-placed Fulham.
