West Ham go into their game against City as heavy outsiders to pick up the three points.

"I don't think it is because we are not organised or not running hard enough to get back into position, or the players are not showing the right attitude". After all, even the shinniest of overhead kicks involves some delicate timing while being literally upside down.

That is no criticism of Ayew.

He has agreed an 18-month contract on £6m-a-year which takes him above some of the biggest names in football.

West Ham United were humiliated at Goodison Park on Wednesday evening when they were beaten by 4-0 by Everton, with many of their fans calling for the head of one of their own on social media.

Ayew, who was restored to the starting XI for the fixture, was left hugely disappointed after the full-time whistle and admitted the players on the pitch must take full responsibility for the performance.

"We just felt tonight that the way West Ham have been playing, Wayne could have a major influence from a deeper role". Moreover, their goal difference took a healthy boost last night ahead of Sam Allardyce's (eventual) appointment as the new manager.

Everton had to hold up against continual stress after the break when the intro of Diafra Sakho helped West Ham rally. This leaves manager Unsworth short of options, especially at the back. Top scorer Oumar Niasse will miss the match due to suspension. Rooney was enduring this problem at the start of the 2015-16 campaign but finally got off the mark with style, netting three goals against Club Brugge. That is more than any other player. It's not normal. We need to get back to work and try and get some points.

There were improvements in the 2nd half.

With the negativity around the club still growing, wins need to come before West Ham awake in a crisis.
