West Ham fans applaud goalkeeper Darren Randolph despite 4-1 defeat to Everton

Dominic Calvert-Lewin continued his stunning start to the 2020-21 campaign with his second hat-trick of the season as Everton knocked West Ham out of the Carabao Cup – but Hammers fans applauded goalkeeper Darren Randolph.

David Moyes – who watched his Hammers side take on former club Everton from home – made eight changes to the side that produced a stunning 4-0 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers last time out.

Having netted five goals in three Premier League games, including a hat-trick over West Brom, Calvert-Lewin was handed a start for the Toffees as Carlo Ancelotti fielded a strong side in a bid to progress.

It paid off. Calvert-Lewin took his tally to eight goals for the campaign in just five league and cup appearances – despite Robert Snodgrass cancelling out the uncapped England striker’s opener for Everton.

Richarlison also got his name on the score sheet after Snodgrass had leveled the tie, but a much-changed West Ham were no match for a very strong Everton. Had it not been for Randolph, the score could have been a lot worse.

The 33-year-old produced a number of saves but could do nothing about the four goals – with Richarlison’s effort deflected and Calvert-Lewin’s second a tap-in after the ball hit the post. West Ham fans praised the £4million (BBC) signing.
