David Moyes takes West Ham hot seat and people aren't happy Wochit

Well that brings an end to our coverage from the Premier League. It was quite a night in the end as Man City left it late to beat Southampton, Wayne Rooney scored a hat-trick as Everton beat West Ham and Liverpool outclassed Stoke thanks to Mo Salah.

We'll have all the reaction from these games and the other taking place across the country tonight. But until next time, it's goodbye.


Full time: Manchester City 2-1 Southampton

City score in Fergie time to extent their lead over Manchester United to eight points. Raheem Sterling gets the winner with an absolute worldy from outside the box, after Oriol Romeu looked to have secured a point after he cancelled out Nicolas Otamendi's opener.


GOAL! Manchester City 2-1 Southampton (Raheem Sterling)

The hallmark of champions? Raheem Sterling has a goal chalked out but he is not to be denied as he curls a beauty beyond Forster to secure the three points in the sixth minute of added time.


Full time: Everton 4-0 West Ham

One of these sides got beaten 4-1 at the weekend and haven't got a permanent manager. The other have a new manager who used to work at Manchester United. But it was Everton who prevailed through a Wayne Rooney treble, before Ashley Williams got the fourth. Jordan Pickford saves Manuel Lanzini's penalty at 2-0, which turned the game but the night is all about Rooney.


Full-time: Stoke 0-3 Liverpool

Liverpool go fifth in the table with in the end a comfortable win over Stoke, but they needed some good fortune along the way. Simon Mignolet survived being sent off but what followed was a masterclass in finishing. Sadio Mane got the first in the opening 45 minutes, before Mo Salah came off the bench to score twice. Stoke huffed and puffed but lacked real quality.


Stoke still can't break through. Mignolet save from Shaqiri but Diouf rattles the post from the follow-up, before Crouch is denied on the rebound. Mark Hughes meanwhile is on his long run.


West Ham have been laughable tonight. And it gets no easier for David Moyes, with Man City, Chelsea and Arsenal to come in the next three games.

GOAL! Stoke 0-3 Liverpool (Mohamed Salah)

Another one for super-sub Salah who capitalises on a horrible error from Erik Pieters as the ball bounces off his back and the Egyptian makes no mistake, sliding past Grant.


GOAL! Everton 4-0 West Ham (Ashley Williams)

The icing on the cake for the Toffees, and boy it is sweet. Rooney's corner finds Williams who produces a fine flicked header who loops into the far corner. Hart no chance and West Ham, no hope.


GOAL! Stoke 0-2 Liverpool (Mohamed Salah)

That should be enough for Liverpool. Sadio Mane races to the byline and his cross is met on the volley by substitute Salah, who nets his 16th of the season.


GOAL! Manchester City 1-1 Southampton (Oriol Romeu)

Saints get the goal their chances deserve. Lemina brings the ball down in the area and cuts the ball down for Romeu to hammers home.


Mane booked for curtailing a Stoke break as we enter the final 17 minutes. Liverpool hanging on a bit here, and not very convincingly either.


Another chance for Southampton. Summer target Virgil van Dijk meets a corner but can only head over from six yards. From set pieces Saints have threatened on almost every occasion. But they remain behind at the Etihad.


GOAL! Everton 3-0 West Ham (Wayne Rooney)

Wayne Rooney nets his first Everton hat-trick, and he might have just wrapped up the goal of the season award as well. Joe Hart clears out a loose ball but it falls to Rooney inside the centre-circle in his own half and he drives it goalwards and it bounces into the empty net. All of 60 yards. Fine strike.


Handbags at the Bet365 Stadium as Oxlade-Chamberlain and Bruno Martin-Indi square up after the Stoke defend blocks the former's run down the right. A bit of pushing ans shoving follows, as do yellow cards for each.


Stoke really having a go at Liverpool here and it takes a good block from Emre Can to keep out Diouf's effort. Liverpool not offered a great deal since the break.


Ashley Williams concedes a penalty but West Ham can't take advantage. Jordan Pickford turns away the effort from Lanzini and Everton's lead remains intact.




Lots of debate on Twitter over whether Simon Mignolet should have indeed been sent off. He was marginally the last man but with the incident outside of the box he could have been sent off without a penalty being given, thus avoiding the 'triple jeopardy' punishment which has been ended.

Whether he made a genuine attempt win the ball is irrelevant, as it took place outside the area.


Much better rom West Ham at the start of this second half. Pickford has to turn the ball away with a fine save to keep out Lanzini. Now the Argentine plays in Aaron Cresswell who cracks a shot off the crossbar. This game has come alive.


Joe Allen should have scored against his former employers but misses the target from point blank range. The net seemed destined to just bulge, but the Reds survive.


GOAL! Manchester City 1-0 Southampton (Nicolas Otamendi)

Southampton will be sick. They should be ahead but City show their cutting edge and lead two minutes after the break. Kevin de Bruyne is the master creator again as his free-kick is missed by Aguero but touched in by Otamendi.
